if we could just add sunshine, please?

Homework done, bellies filled with nourishment, 3 smiling kids, shouts and squeals from the gardens, 'bambi-eyes' at the front door wanting to come in and play ...all possible with these gorgeous bright evenings. We have sprung forward the hour for a month now and we are really starting to cash in with the extra daylight that this part of the world can bring. It is bright now until 9:00pm and in another month we will have brightness until 10:30pm. It is like an extra day in the same 24hours. We don't appreciate it enough because we are so busy complaining about the lack of sun here but to the tourists, it is a gift. So I try to cherish it because it rocks. ....though a little sunshine and warmth would just be the icing on the cake.

It is late April after all.
