Marie's March Article

28 Feb 18

We British are certainly a hardy breed as the weather is ever-changing.  One day in February we awoke to quite a lot of snow, but within just over an hour, it disappeared and we were left with blue skies and sunshine, but bitterly cold.  There are, however signs that Spring is on its way, as there are lots of Catkins on the trees and the bulbs are through.  

If anyone loves to see the moon in the night sky as I do, they will know that this year there have been some beautiful sights – huge Full Moon, a Blue Moon and although we couldn’t see it in the West, there was a Red Moon which is a total eclipse.  My mother told us never to look at the New Moon through glass – hard luck on those of us who wear glasses. She also told us that when there is a Full Moon some people go mad – thus the word lunatic from lunar. 

Recently I watched a debate on television asking if marriage should expire if required after 20 years.  What a load of rubbish!  It people want to treat the marriage service like a mortgage or an insurance policy, why get married and take the vows that promise, ‘Till death us do part’?                 

I recycle when I can – buy green bags for food waste and putting cardboard and paper in the red bin together with tins, bottles etc.  However, it isn’t always that people don‘t recycle, it is because they can’t as a lot of plastic can’t be recycled and just recently as I was opening a box of Bisto and preparing to put the empty one in the red bin, I read the label on the side and it said that the bag containing the Bisto could not yet be recycled.   How on earth do people know what they can or cannot recycle?

An Irish wish;   

May there always be work for your hands to do;  

May your purse always hold a coin or two; 

May the sun always shine on your windowpane; 

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.”
