Snowdrops – sign of things to come

When in England earlier this week, I spotted my first snowdrop of the year in my mum’s garden, in a little corner, almost hidden from sight. Always a good sign. Snowdrops hint at the spring that is to come, even from the depths of winter gloom. None out in my garden as yet, but any day soon, they should start peeking out through the undergrowth to let me know that my garden may be sleeping, but it will wake up again in the months to come.

Christmas is just around the corner

As a teacher in schools, I love Christmas as it is a time of excitement and warmth. Fond memories of singing “The Twelve Days of Christmas” in school in the UK, many years ago and of teaching the very same song to many classes in France over the years. I wonder if my students remember ??!!

Merry Christmas to anyone who is reading this blog post and very best wishes for health and happiness in 2019.
