Well, the weather mages got that one right yesterday! Spring had already made a start around here, but yesterday the South West was hit by the ‘Beast from East’ and then Storm Emma hit mid-afternoon! Here’s that little verse the title comes from –
March roars in like a lion
The wind so cold,
It seems to pierce.
The month rolls on
And Spring draws near,
And March goes out
Like a lamb so dear.

And here’s some visuals from my office window from yesterday p.m. and this morning (and in that order)!
To the south west. That’s a good 3 inches overnight…
And to the north! Notice that the trees are bare – that Emma created blizzard conditions so there was a lot of drifting out on the roads.
And back to purple? Well as of Thursday morning I was still planning to make an afternoon tea date at a swanky golf club boutique hotel on Dartmoor, foolishly thinking that, as it’s almost all primary routes all the way, I decided my hair needed to change colour as it would clash with what I was planning to wear…
Back to the purple hair again – actually I feel much more like myself again! Those of you who are fairly regular with my selfies might notice that I’ve lost a bit of weight and had my hair re-styled – there is some silver-lining to having a bowel disease!
Time for some piping hot soup and a nice cosy night with the heating blasting and good telly! Have a great weekend everyone and, if you are still suffering from Emma, stay safe if you do venture out.
