welcome to march

Four days off … That’s what most of the population look forward to at Easter, isn’t it? A shining nugget of relaxation on the horizon after the dank, dark days of winter. Link that in your mind with images of spring flowers, the smell of a sticky-glossy joint of meat roasting in the oven, the promise of chocolate, a family/ friends gathering that doesn’t involve having to write cards and wrap presents and it all adds up to something pretty special.
