We have all been stultified this winter. I have been hampered by snow, impeded by ice, thwarted by winds, frustrated with the whole shebang, foiled in attempts to get places, my activities have been suppressed, I feel smothered by heat and blankets indoors, BORED to death, finding it hard to get inspired it's been so dull, makes us all a bit numb and benumbed. It's totally stupefying that this has gone on this long.

It's Friday!
 It's pouring rain. 
 It's Flower Therapy Day!
 Have fish and chips for dinner...Sherlock does:)
