I must be a bit fickle, because sometimes the Winter months can get me feeling a bit (for want of a better word)’down’. (If ‘meh’ was in the dictionary I would go with that.)

For me mostly, it’s because of dreary weather. Rain, wind and cold I can handle (especially with a heat pump), instead for me I think less sunlight is the killer. I find myself being less patient and my demeanour is often less ‘sunny’ than I should be.
And when there are days of rain in a row, cooped up kids and a less patient Mum can spell recipe for disaster!
To put myself in a better frame of mind, most Winter’s I try and dwell on the positive things that come with the colder season. (… Kind of: Sleigh-bells and snowbells and Whiskers on kittens…. these are a few of my favourite things –ish!)

So I have decided that this week is my ‘Celebrate Winter Week’ – heck, it may even extend beyond that (at least I hope an improved attitude on my part does.)
So join in with me in this next little while as I explore, comfort food, Winter fashion and rainy day fun with kids amongst other joys of Winter. And if you happen to do a blog post along a similar vein please leave me a comment with a link and I will be sure to check it out!
