Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 1 : The Beginning of Spring

March has arrived which to me means spring is here at last!

With all the doom and gloom in the news about the economy and the general state of the world, I thought it would be nice to start a little series here on my blog to rebel against this tide of negativity by celebrating some good reasons to be cheerful such as the beginning of Spring.

There has to be a time and place for bright and happy thoughts - so why not create a bit of space for it here. 

From time to time I will try to post a picture or two of something I think is a reason to be cheerful.  This idea of mine has clearly been inspired by one of my favourite songs by Ian Dury and The Blockheads (click link to see the video).

So here goes, my first reason to be cheerful is:  The Beginning of Spring... 

Look at those lovely daffodils from last year.  Every year without fail their golden trumpets greet me each morning from my kitchen window.  Yesterday a huge smile spread across my face when I turned my over the page on my 2013 Katie Daisy  calendar - just look at those pretty, vibrant painted blooms below shouting 'Spring Has Arrived!' at me... they can't fail to brighten the day no matter how grey the sky is.

Happy weekend, I hope you have a cheerful week!
