I've Been Sprung By Spring!

OK so it doesn't officially arrive until Tuesday 20th March... but I'm convinced that the new season is well under way. The flowers are out, the birds are singing, the bees are buzzing... and I've just been overwhelmingly smitten for the first time this year like a bolt from the blue. Those kind of hits don't happen in winter... it has that special kind of freshness to it... like the cool and clean bite that air has in the morning on a brand new day.

It happened just before lunch, the front doorbell rang and a colleague answered the door, letting the visitor in. It turned out to be someone who had come to read the building's electricity and gas... what is more she was from the female of the species!

She was amazing... raven haired and with a facial piercing... (not normally my type). There was something familiar about her, she reminded me of a good friend I have. It was a culmination of these things that struck me like lightning.

I'll probably never see her again... if you happen to know a girl fitting that description who was reading gas and electric in the Stratford-upon-Avon area today... let her know please.

All I can say is it was a good job she was only checking the buildings gas and electric because my digestive system and neural pathways were going hyper!

I'd love to have gone for a coffee with her, just to see if she was as nice a person as she came across. I guess I'll never know now... SIGH!

Why oh why do I have all these internal directives that I subject myself to?

Note to self... be impulsive for once, find a nice girl, have a friendly chat and just chill out. Stop taking yourself too seriously you pilchard!


  1. Well, great advice to yourself my friend! I've kind of taken the same... although I'm like you, I haven't fallen through on it yet!
    Thanks for stoppin' by and makin yourself known again... haha... I have a blogspot as well, and keep 'em both updated with the same thing. It was just easier to keep them both open. Don't ask me why.
    I'll be praying for you Nick, hope you find what (or who????????????) youre looking for!

  2. Hey Nick, sounds like it was a bolt from the blue and what a bolt! You never know, she might call again soon...

    Not fair! We still have snow on the ground here, no flowers or bees yet.

    Take heart buddy, you just never know if God will have you two meet again, or if He will have you bump into someone else. (I'm hoping He has this one come 'round again tho for you!) All in His timing.

  4. Well since my friends Bunnygirl and Linseed have blog linked you, I thought I would pop in and say hi too. Here in New Zealand, we officially welcomed Autumn on March 1st and the clocks go backwards this coming weekend. Still the weather is pretty great over here for autumn.
