Seeing this dude without a hat and in the fresh air in his lighter coat was just blissful. 14 mild degrees today and the difference it made was unreal. I wore a bloody leather jacket to the bank and didn't feel a bit cold like. I opened my WINDOW in the car at one stage. Dreaming about park dates, feeding the ducks and not leaving the house with a million layers on. A million layers means a million more washes to do. Spring, we are…

    4 days ago by traceysblog My sister sent me this photo a few weeks ago and I literally cannot put in to words how it made me feel (but she's going to try, says you) Firstly, I had never seen it.

I then went on to break my phone and lose every single photo apart from those that I uploaded to social media. Being surprised with a new photo of my little new born was such a gift. I have such a rush…
