Winter is here and it is getting a little bit chilly! Yes, even in Brisbane! My old style house is built for the heat meaning it is like an ice box at the moment. Often I will leave for work in the morning and the temperature outside is actually warmer than inside…that really doesn’t seem fair!
So instead of hiding away trying to keep warm under a pile of blankets with a cup of tea not wanting to face the world like is often the case when the temperature goes down, I decided that I would look at some of the more awesome things about winter so we can remember to enjoy them before the summer months come back around!
So sit back and relax with a steaming hot cup of tea and remember with me some of the good things about winter!
1. Oversized jumpers
No need to worry about winter food bellies when you are wearing one of these! It’s almost like a blanket you can wear out of the house, comfort and warmth all wrapped up in one!
2. Coconut hot chocolates
Being dairy-free does not mean I have to miss out on the greatest way to warm up! Just some hot chocolate powder and some coconut milk equals deliciousness in a mug!
I have so many different pairs of boots and I love them all equally. This year I have a snow adventure in New Zealand planned which gave me a great excuse to purchase another pair! It may be an addiction…
4. Sleeping in & cosy beds
My morning exercise routine goes right out the window in winter as I truly come to appreciate the comfort of my bed! Sneaking in those extra few minutes every morning is a little bonus I give myself before summer comes back around.
5. Throw blankets
Wrapping yourself up in an overly soft blanket on the couch is one of the best things about winter. Add a good book and a cup of tea and my evenings are complete!
6. My Slow Cooker
There is nothing better than walking through the door after a long day at work to a house that smells divine! When the temp drops it is time for an array of soups, stews and curries…don’t forget the crusty bread!
What is your favourite thing about winter? Note: saying “when it’s over” is not an answer!
