Sunshine Dreaming

Sunlit branches
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a bit fed up with all this wet and cold weather. I know living in the middle of the country we haven’t had as much bad weather as others but I have to admit, this year, the lack of sunshine is really getting to me.
Tuesday morning I opened the children’s curtains to be greeted by the sunshine illuminating the tree top opposite and the wood across the park. I grabbed my phone wanting to capture this beautiful sight and I’m so glad I did.
Ten minutes later it was gone and grey sky followed, there still here today.
So in a hope to cheer myself up, I decide to make a smoothie.

Sunshine Smoothie

Roll on the spring weather I hear is rumoured to be arriving next week.

  1. I'm definitely ready for the warmer weather. We've had such rare sunshine recently.

  2. I am definitely ready for spring! We actually had a beautiful day yesterday, not just sunny but warm too! Grey skies again today though, boo! That smoothie sounds yum 🙂

  3. Same here! I remember last year when in March, it certainly felt like spring already. At the moment, it feels like winter is still dragging on and on and on. Love the look of that smoothie. Now I want one 😉 Dean of Little Steps.

  4. Ooh I love the look of that smoothy, coconut water is delicious! H x

  5. That's a great view you have from the kids bedroom. Seems the sun is always out when I wake up and as you said disappears within minutes!
    Great smoothie recipe X

  6. Haha, I should make more smoothies too! Warm weather is on the doorstep – dont fret 🙂
    The mornings are sunnier and lighter as well as the evenings and although it's still cold and crisp – it's bearable… but just for a few more weeks, then I'm going to get really annoyed 😉

  11. I'm so ready for Spring now as well! It gets a bit deflating waking up each morning and seeing it clouded over. May have to give your smoothie a go now in the hopes of feeling a bit more 'Spring like'. Thanks for sharing.

  16. A glass of sunshine – that is a great idea. We have an army of daffodils ready to pop, which is making it seem a little closer to spring. Fingers crossed it comes sooner rather than later 🙂

  17. I think I need a glass of sunshine in my life. It is dull and dark here in North Yorkshire.
