This week I have scraped the first ice from my windscreen. It looks like Autumn is coming to an end and Winter is coming. Winter is such a wonderful time of the year. Yes, it’s cold and the weather unpredictable, but it is a lovely time of year.
Now, I will admit I am not a fan of the cold, but that doesn’t mean that I cannot love Winter. There is so much to love about this time of year, so why not share what I love about it.
Cold Hands Around Hot drinks.
There are so many lovely hot drinks to be had at this time of year. Tea, coffee, spiced lattes, hot chocolate and mine and Booey’s favourite, white hot chocolate. Just the drinks on their own are one of the things to love about winter, but so is the feeling of cold around a hot drink. Whether you have been out shopping or for a walk, getting a hot drink to warm you up is lovely. I love the tingly feeling you get in your hands as they warm up around a drink.
Cosy Nights At Home.
I love cosy nights in with my family. Curling up on the sofa under a blanket with Booey and hubby while watching tv or movies is bliss. I love fleecy blankets, we have loads of them, probably enough for 3 each! Any excuse for me to curl up under one is taken. Booey loves her blankets too, and she is always trying to steal mine!
I hate the cold, but I love snow! The UK seems to come to a standstill when it snows, our country is not equipt for it apparently. When you have kids snow is so much more fun. Snowball fights, snow angels and building snowmen, I love all of it. And everything looks so pretty, it’s amazing how much a bit of white stuff makes everything look better.
Warm jumpers, hats and scarves.
Some people hate all the layers you have to wear in winter, but I love them. I do love summer clothes, but they are nothing compared to wrapping yourself up in a cosy jumper. It’s also time for hats and scarves. I have a cute bobble hat that I got in Covent Garden a couple of years ago that I love and some lovely scarves (of course some with skulls on) to wrap myself up in. I embrace the layers!
You can’t mention winter without talking at least a little about Christmas. I love Christmas, I get to spend time with my family and relax. The gifts are great of course, but for me it is all about family. I hope that each Christmas we make some lovely memories together that we will all always remember.
So, that is what I love about winter. Is there anything you love about winter?
Take care everyone.
