Pinch punch, first of the month, and the first day of spring. I left work at 5.45pm last Thursday and it was still light! Well, maybe not light but not fully dark. I almost sent my colleagues a picture, but then I realised they were still inside and I was outside so probably not a tactful move.
But for me, the evenings getting lighter is one of the signs that spring is here – finally! As are the daffodils Scrip’s Aunty Pocket (don’t ask) brought with her when she came for dinner. It’s also Scrip’s birthday tomorrow and I’m turning the heating down, so what more convincing do I need?
Currently brightening up my worktop is a limited edition Spring Blossom Washing Up Liquid from Persil. OK it won’t scent the air as naturally as my daffys (perfect for St David’s Day) do but it does smell surprisingly fresh and slightly fruity, almost like handwash (apparently down to notes of freesia, white rose, vanilla and dry fruit) and I love the bright pink colour.
Being Persil, it cleans really well and it’s just £1 a bottle. Bring on the spring.
I was sent a limited edition bottle of Spring Blossom Persil Washing Up Liquid, £1 for 500ml and available from Tesco from March 2015.
