Back in the autumn I planted some bulbs. I had 'high expectations' that I would have a carpet of snowdrops by early spring. So far just a couple have popped up from beneath the soil. I am so pleased that the bulbs didn't rot away with all the wet weather that we had and with lower expectations, will be happy to see any that thrive in the somewhat temperamental weather conditions.
Now that I am resolute in lowering my expectations of wanting to be the perfect role model having the perfect life (yes I know it doesn't exist in reality), I feel strangely liberated! I will do what I can when I can and if I am unable to 'achieve' it the World will still turn!
Wishing you all a liberating weekend!
