At Junior School, I used to write the date at the top of the page in my diary before writing about what I’d done over the weekend just passed.
Being the 1960s, I liked writing 196- and was quite concerned at the end of 1969 when I realised that the 6 would change to 7, not even thinking of 8 and 9 to follow or the change from 19 to 20.
Many years, weekends and days have passed and now seem to be passing even faster.
I enjoy all times of year, but April and May do always bring special cheer to me as everything wakes up in England and the days grow longer, brighter and warmer.
This year I made a special effort to enjoy each day so that these months did not fly past without me realising.
And now we are at the 60th of the 61 days which will soon be a memory. I felt a little sad this morning before going out for the first walk of the day.
Then the sun came out and I exchanged greetings with nine people and I realised that here was another lovely day to enjoy, just like yesterday and tomorrow.
