Spring in the Air, and Winter....

Today's been all over the map, weatherwise. The morning started out windy and bright, the wind died down a bit and the sun stuck around to make walking a sheer pleasure, and then, as I waited for the kids in the playground this afternoon, the skies opened up. It poured rain for about 20 minutes, and now it's clear and fresh again. Ahh, England, you do like to surprise me all day long.

You would think by now I'd have smartened up about carrying more layers of various kinds, but not so much... Ideally, I need a heavy coat, a light jacket, a cardigan, a scarf and gloves. Maybe a hat, too. Just for one day's worth of weather. I was overdressed in a parka this morning, but didn't have a scarf with me(borrowed one!) which was more necessary. For school run time, I switched to a light trenchcoat (AND my own scarf) but forgot the umbrella. Heh.

Maybe I just need a wardrobe cube in the boot of the car. I have spare clothes for the kidlets, as well as cleaning supplies, after the last carsickness episode. Don't know ... if I add much more, I won't have room for anything else, like groceries.

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday in the US. If you're registered in one of the 24 states having primaries, I hope you'll vote. Already sent my absentee ballot in last month. It's going to be very interesting to watch. I'll probably stay up far too late to wait for returns. I always do...
