It’s almost Spring. I can tell because everyone’s having babies.

Yeah. I can sense it. Come on Spring. You don’t fool me with your minus temperatures. I can take it. I can drink tea to keep warm. I can ride it. You, however, can’t hide from me – I saw the daffodils blooming the other day. There’s also Easter eggs in Tesco. You, sir/lady, have […]
