"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Everyone needs something to look forward to, as it makes life much more exciting, so I thought I would start a discussion where we can tell each other exactly what we are looking forward to!

I am looking forward to going out for dinner with my partner tonight, and I am excited to see him :).

What about you? What are you looking forward to?

    As I'm just back from a wonderful holiday, I'm happy to be at home for a bit. I suppose I'm looking forward to going to Kathmandu in a few weeks, though I am not looking forward to how busy I will be when I get there.

    I hope you manage to have a little bit of time to enjoy yourself, even though you are going to be busy. I wish I had as much opportunity to travel as you do!

    Working for yourself is the biggest problem as not only do you have the cost of the holiday and flights, but as you don't have paid leave like you would working as an employee somewhere, then you lose whatever earnings you would have made during that holiday. The thing to do is to find work that you can do online as a digital nomad @GemmaRowlands. You don't need to necessarily move around much, but as long as you can find a place you want to stay that has decent internet, then you're laughing.

    I will have to search online to see where other people stay where they can still do work at the same time. That would be the best thing to do I think!
