Happy April! How wonderful to be able to say that...because it means that at last Spring is really here! Today is soft & warm...a chilly wind, but I don't mind that in the least! I've been busy planting & weeding & forking the flowerbeds...pictures of my April garden will be posted shortly!
But today, as it's April Fool's Day, I thought I'd make you smile!
I spent this morning in Oxford - or more accurately in Headington, on the outskirts. Paul had a hospital appointment and as he wasn't allowed to drive afterwards I was his chauffeuse! The appointment was about 2 hours, so I walked into town from there and suddenly remembered that in the 1980's there was a man who had a big battle with Oxford City Council's planning department because he decided to have a great white shark dive through his roof! A fibreglass replica, obviously...but lifesize! Eventually, he won the fight...and attracted hordes of sightseers (my much younger self included) come to gawp at the 'Shark in the Roof'! I wondered if it was still there...and it is!! In fact, it now has a preservation order on it (isn't it funny how time turns everything around eventually?) I'm sorry the picture is a bit dark, but you get the idea. It is amazingly lifelike...the tiles and beams are even arranged around the 'entry hole' so it looks as though sharky really has crashed in from the sky!
Happy new month to you...so many good things to look forward to. I hope you are having a fabulous day xoxo
