what a beautiful day!

today has been the most gorgeous day of the year so far! it was sunny all day, not even a spot of rain! lovely white fluffy clouds and the sun was even warm. so in the afternoon, the boys and i took the bus first to the grocery store to buy a few things, then we walked to the park. it is a park that brings back lots of memories! it is just across the street from where andy lived while at uni. and just a few minutes walk from the house where i lived when i was a student here in birmingham.

i remember going there with calem on valentine’s day (’99) and swinging away, talking what we wanted to do in life, relationships, reminiscing and everything else!

i remember going with andy and jonny late one night as i forgot my keys to get into springdale (the house i lived in, which was also the college) and andy and jonny had walked me home that night. so we sat on a bench and talked, well i asked questions about there meeting (ie. there place of worship).

as you walk down the street (gibbins rd), along the sidewalk are crocuses…beautiful, gorgeous flowers of purple, yellow and white. i so vividly remember seeing them for the first time, walking to sainsbury’s with my new roommate triin and gill, who was the secretary at springdale. we were going to have lunch at the cafe in sainsbury’s…..
