The end of the dark months

Today is the last day of February .. the end of the (apparently) most depressing month of the year in the northern hemisphere. So how have you coped with these dark cold days of winter? On my days off I like to go out for long walks in my local park and along the canal. It's usually fairly quiet apart from dog walkers, joggers and mums with prams.  Some days there's hardly a soul in sight. The quietness and fresh air is uplifting and providing you have the correct clothing on, it really isn't a problem regardless of the conditions.  You won't find me feeling depressed because of the weather!

I always make sure I have something to look forward to - they don't call me the holiday queen for nothing!  My next jaunt as I've already told you is to the beautiful island of Barbados .. just a week away, but the rest of the year is still an open book, with the possibility of a weekend break to Marrakech, Paris or Berlin. The lure of the hot springs in Iceland is another one on the hit list. New York is always a certainty as is Milan, so it's just a matter of making a decision and the booking!

See you when I return!
