A brief one…

Anyone wondering why the Google logo looked like this yesterday?


It was because Spring began yesterday at, wait for it, exactly 12.57 pm.

I know this because a) they said so on the radio in the morning and b) because Child 2 came home and shared this fact as his news at the dinner table last night.

I have covered the US approach to the seasons recently here, and to their bizarre accuracy about time here, so I very much enjoyed hearing those two cultural differences synthesize so perfectly yesterday. And really I am not too bothered about when Spring is sprung, so long as we are finished with that God awful Winter 🙂

When did Spring start in the UK this year?
