opening chapter two – hello february

1th February 2024
29 days. Make them count. Don’t just leap this year, soar. Primroses bloom. Snowdrops sprout. Thrushes sing from above. Wildlife stirs. Welly walks. Windy, wonderfully wild. Up ahead, alert roe deer tiptoe through fields. Grazing ewes feast on grass, content, bellies full. Air fresh. Anticipation. Snow or sunshine awaits. Indoors, slippers on, potter at your own pace. Pancakes. For breakfast? Whisk, flip, stack ‘em up high! In the greenhouse, sow dreams for the seasons ahead. Valentine’s. Galentine’s. Love yourself first. Noticeably lighter. A smidge brighter. The dawn of Spring nears. Pause. Pace yourself. Embrace the beauty of now.

There’s something quite enchanting about a leap year.

The fact that every four years we’re rewarded with an extra 24 hours to play with. One whole extra day to chase our dreams… or spend doing whatever we want (the day is our oyster after all!) So the fact that this month offers exactly that fills me with so much anticipation and joy.

For that reason, as we open chapter two and say hello to February, my mind is currently figuring out how best to spend it.

For those born on the 29th February, the answer feels pretty obvious, right?! 

(I mean, let’s face it, I go all out on my birthday and it comes around every year. I’ll leave it to you to imagine how much I’d celebrate if I had to wait four years to blow out the candles! Side note: Happy birthday to everyone born on the 29th February before I forget!)

When it’s not your birthday though and is instead ‘an extra day,’ I can’t help but feel like I should put it to good use. After all, if you read my last newsletter of January (sign up here if you’d like to subscribe) you’ll know that I’m determined to make my days count and go after my dreams with intention this year, given how quickly January flew by!

With that in mind, though I haven’t quite figured the answer out myself just yet, I encourage you to have a think about how you could spend your extra day if you haven’t done so already. 

Why? 

Because life’s too short to let gifts like this pass us by if you ask me!

So have a think. 

Then take the leap and soar.

A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
