Why I Love Winter

It felt pretty cold to me today, which got me thinking about winter. Admittedly it’s not most people’s favourite season, but I like many things about it. I also like spurious lists, so here is the official TLC guide to 10 things I like about winter:

  • Spending more time with Mr TLC (less cycling for him in winter weather)
  • Snuggling up in front of the fire
  • Eating stews and casseroles
  • Going out for a walk on a frosty day
  • Coming inside out of the cold and warming up
  • Our ginger cat being at home instead of living outdoors
  • Doing the Christmas shopping
  • Drinking hot chocolate
  • The beautiful colours of evergreen shrubs and dogwoods in the garden
  • A winter flowering viburnum bursting into a mass of pink blooms

Simple pleasures to savour all the winter long.
