7 reasons to love - but not love - spring
If you’ve been living in a pocket of Australia where you've suffered through the cold, you’ll know the joy that spring can provide.
Reaching the start of this season signals the overcoming of a major hurdle that we like to call winter.
Yep, welcoming spring is a cause for celebration. But as we discovered, it’s a time of contradiction. Here’s why we love but don’t love spring.
Positive: It’s footy finals time. Yay!
Negative: Oh no, footy season is almost over. What are we going to do now?
Positive: Look at those flowers! They are just so colourful.
Negative: Damn this stupid hay fever.
Positive: Listen to that, would you. You have to love the sound of birds chirping away.
Negative: Seriously, if I get swooped by one more magpie…
Positive: It’s spring, which means it’s almost summer, which means even more sunshine. Yes!
Negative: No, no, no, no, no. They can’t be Christmas decorations. Please no.
Positive: Feel that sun. Warmth. So much warmth. Brilliant.
Negative: Hmmm…the forecast says showers and strong winds tomorrow.
Positive: (for some of us) I can’t wait until daylight savings starts.
Negative: I can’t afford to lose 10 minutes, let alone a whole hour. And what’s the time in Queensland again?
Positive: I guess I can ditch the coat. Woohoo.
Negative: That’s kinda annoying – $200 of hard-earned cash, and I only wore it once.
