Always the optimist OH! Looking at my phone weather it appears at least the rain is leaving us after this weekend! Temp not too high to dry it out quickly but still the little ray of sunshine will make us all happier!

A couple of days have offered optimism. The sunshine has warmth in it. (Then the hailstorm hits :lol: )

"It is the first mild day of March
Each minute sweeter than before
The red-breast sings from the tall larch
That stands beside our door"
William Wordsworth 1798

If only it was today (but apparently it is in Somerset where WW was in March 1798).
For me here in Herts today it is clear but cold.

Sad to hear of your personal problems robo but congratulations on your wedding anniversary. Not many stay that length of course these days! . Hope your hospital visit on Tuesday heralds some relief for you and they can sort your issue out.
