It's woolly socks and hairy legs; flannie sheets and a snuggly doona.

It's the warm soft glow of lamps and a crackling fire, snuggling in a chair with a good book, listening to winter storms outside.

It's slow cooker dinners and hot chocolate (and sometimes, just sometimes, melting a few squares of chocolate in my chocolate melty-pot and spoiling myself for a little while).

It's the smell of Skin-So-Soft bath oil and woodsmoke; pumpkin soup with bacon and a good bottle of red.

It's fog in the mornings and frost overnight.

It's footy on the weekends and walks on the beach with stinging, cold rain and a wind that comes straight off the Southern Ocean.

Sometimes, I can nearly convince myself that I love winter.


  1. *Sigh* After reading that, I can almost convince myself I love winter too. Almost ;)

  2. Agree with Lori - that was beautiful! It's the first day of summer here and I'm all "YESSSSSSSSSSS!!" because I love the heat (not that it isn't hot nearly all year round, really)...but that gave me a twinge of wist for lovely winter x

  3. You've almost convinced me!! Almost ....

  4. So beautiful, Toni. Really well written. I think I could fall in love with winter after that!! And that's coming from a freezing-my-toes-off Taswegian! :)

  5. You have certainly highlighted the features of winter well! If only we didn't have to go outside, winter would be the best season! x

    PS Sending you a 'virtual hug' for Saturday o
