spring has sprung

It is a beautifully sunny day here in London, I managed to get up early because Jack wanted out at 8ish even though I was out drinking last night for ‘friendlies’ at The Ram in Islington.
So Jack has been to the common, I have all the windows open in the flat and I am spring cleaning – I’m convinced it’s a built in compulsion to clean in spring!
Meg and Paul are moving today as well – nice day for it.
So I have had my 10 minutes to catch up on mail, update this so now I’m off to enjoy the sunshine. I’m looking forward to more sun to come too – the nights are getting lighter and it finally feels like summer is not too far away.

I take exception

To the americans describing my name as needlessly fussy. GRRRRRR
Variation: IAN
This most attractive Scottish form of John was rather late making inroads on our shores ? it was already the seventh most popular boys? name in England in 1965. After the emergence of Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, Americans gradually began warming to the jaunty charm of the name; now it is finally gaining a foothold on some popularity lists, although not yet sufficiently to feel prohibitively overused. IAIN is an alternate, authentic, but needlessly fussy spelling.
