Given that the majority of people completing this TOT will be in the Northern Hemisphere, my perspective might be a bit different being ‘Down Under’.
- You know there is a month in your family calendar where there seems to be a never-ending stream of birthdays; March was ours, culminating in my brother’s towards the end of the month. Being away from him is hard at the best of times, let alone when it is our birthdays. Mine is first in the middle of January, his wife, my husband, then my brother – all within 9 weeks of each other at the beginning of the year.
- I’m whisking my husband away for a weekend to celebrate his birthday this month. I avoided the cricket season by booking it now, not February *sigh*
- I’ve written before about how discombobulated I feel with Christmas appearing in the middle of the summer, March here means the weather is heading into autumn, the nights are drawing in, it’s darker in the mornings. I’m missing the nights drawing out, lambs appearing in the fields and spring bulbs. I still get them, but in October!
- I’m looking forward to making stews, casseroles and cooking roast dinners again – it’s been too hot for comfort food, I love putting something in the oven on low, going out and coming back to find a dinner ready, waiting and smelling amazing.
- Why do I like this March? We’re finally in the new house, it’s total chaos, but we’re in.
- Aussie Rules Football starts back up at the end of the month. Totally incomprehensible to some, I absolutely love the game.
- Being in March means I go on holiday next month :)
- Being in March means we’re half way through our pregnancy, and it’s all downhill from here (fingers crossed)
- It’s one month closer to my best friend’s visit when Peanut arrives
- I can add the duvet back to the bed and snuggle underneath its fluffy warmth. Because it’s cooler, it also means spooning Hubs is an option without him wiggling away complaining I’m too hot.
