It's December 23rd, and today I saw my first snowdrops.
I knew I would see them as well, just knew it. It's always this same clump in the cemetery that flowers first, seemingly before the new year in recent times, and I saw it on what I decided would be a long walk and combined Christmas shopping trip.
I had a click and collect order to pick up at the cupboard sized Tesco Express in Balderton, and I took the long way there. I was glad I did, because I came across a lovely bit of street art that appeared to be a drawing of a crested tit and a jay.
In the end I did 13km and got everything I needed.
