Goodbye socks!

I resisted it yesterday, but today I took one step towards summer - I removed my socks, painted my toenails and fished my trusty Birkenstocks out from the back of the wardrobe.
Here come the toes!

I'm praying that this is the end of the cold weather, and we can finally start leaving the house without coats, boots etc.

It's still pretty cold INSIDE the house (takes a good few days of really hot weather before the inside temperature is anywhere near the outside temperature!), but at least it is warm outside.

Yesterday after school, the boys played for over an hour in the garden. It was so lovely to hear their yells and squeals as they bounced on the trampoline and climbed on the climbing frame, with no coats or wellies in sight.

Enjoy the sun while it lasts!


  1. I made the mistake of walking to school in my fit flops this morning it was too cold

    1. Back in socks for me too this week! Such a shame. I've been using the opportunity to smother my feet in foot cream before putting my socks on in the morning & by the end of the day they are softer - my nasty dry heels are almost gone!
