I'm Kristen and I'm living in Crawley, Sussex (hoping to return to my beloved Brighton 'n' Hove when my ME/CFS allows). I drink a lot of tea, ride a lot of buses, go in a lot of charity shops, draw, sew and knit (and attempt to crochet), take a lot of photos, spend a lot of time sleeping, read a lot of history books and follow Jesus Christ. <3

When I was putting away some crockery earlier I noticed this sunrise logo (above) on the bottom of an old saucer, which made me smile. I have been desperate for the sun to arrive.
Blimey, this winter has been hard work. The months of perishing cold have forced me to stay indoors whenever possible cos of my dodgy immune system, and the extended solitude has played havoc with my mental health. Hours and hours of time to fill, and plenty of projects I could be working on, but I've been too depressed to do any of them (including blogging!). Yuk. So every time we've had a sunny day I've got all excited at the prospect of Spring, but it keeps showing its face then disappearing again in high winds and pouring rain!
BUT... I was out this afternoon and I saw my first cherry and apple blossom of the year! What a sight for sore eyes. And there are daffs everywhere, and daisies in the grass and forsythia flowering and buds popping on trees and shrubs. It's all much later than last year, but maybe even more appreciated!
