Word of the week is spring. (I've spent the day gardening and it felt springlike out there today)

Spring can mean, jump, move rapidly, release from prison, a water supply, a season, resilient device if coiled metal etc etc.

I don't think I'll be springing a surprise if I announce I have a free to enter writing competition for you.
Here you can win £5,000 for a story, poem. video or song which offers advice for staying safe online.

Cafelit are accepting submissions for their calendar. Selected pieces will earn a share of the profits.

What are you waiting for? Spring into action!


  1. That's a lovely picture, great minds think alike, I took a picture today of a crocus that's popped up in the grass. Thanks for the links.

  2. Awww yay for Spring and springing into action with a skip and spring in one's step!

    Take care

  3. Lovely picture. I went for a gorgeous walk today and even had to take my coat off! I hope the sunshine lasts!

  4. The early flowers are extra special aren't they, Suzy?

    Kitty, somehow I imagine you skip everywhere you go!

    I hope so too, Annalisa.

  5. Looks like you've already sprung into W1S1 success by meeting your February goals -- way to go!

  9. Milo up there stole my pun, but way to go with W1S1!

  10. I was going to say I wonder where the birdies is, but they're probably all having a nap after waking me up at silly o'clock this morning :-D I love it really x

  11. Thanks, Milo.

    You certainly have, Alex!

    Thank you, Lydia.

    Cheers, David (I don't mind repeated puns!)

    Yes, Sarah. Iris reticulata.

    Teresa, they can be noisy little f... feathered friends, but I love the sound too.

  12. Thanks, Patsy - the cafelit one sounds interesting. Love the iris photo.

  13. You spent the day gardening?! Dude, I wish LOL My gardens are still buried in snow and I'll be lucky to see them in a couple months :)

    Congrats on reaching your W1S1 goals for February.

  14. Those look like great ways to flex my writing muscles. Thanks again Patsy. x

  15. Hey Patsy, I have a couple of awards for you on my blog. :)

  16. Rhonda we have snow here - about every three years. Sometimes it settles and can stay for several days!

    Good luck if you give them a go, Madeleine.

    Oooh, thanks, Rachel - I'll be over!
