It wasn't until I published my post last night that I realised my Ash Wednesday post also featured a storm.
I have struggled with Lent this year. And it's just clicked how much the weather may have affected that.
With Lent sandwiched both ends with wild and woolly weather, and a filling in between of weeks of overcast drizzly days, perhaps that goes some way to explaining my current feelings.
The northern hemisphere dominates Easter themes. There's no nodding daffodils, fluffy chicks, warming days heading towards summer inspiring hope happening around here. Instead its cold and miserable, the days are getting shorter and we have a long winter ahead of us to get through.
Time to stoke up the fire and hunker down with hot cross buns to ride out yet another storm.
