10 Things I like about Winter

I’m trying to be positive about it being winter and cold and dark. Each year I get so depressed when summer is over, no more sunny days out or trips to the seaside, how it’s dark when you leave the house and dark when you get back. Argh! But no, I’m trying to embrace it this year, so I made myself think of 10 things I actually LIKE about winter. And actually, it’s not that bad 🙂

10 Things I like about winter

  1. My Hot Water Bottle
    It’s been hiding under my bed for most of this year, and this weekend the bed was absolutely freezing, so I got this out and remembered how much I love having my feet on this when I lie in bed!
  2. Fleecy Socks
    Still on the subject of feet, I love walking about the house in my fleecy socks, so snug and soft.
  3. X Factor
    I know the ratings are down, but I still love it. I’ve been watching every show since Pop Stars The Rivals! So at least with winter I know I have something to look forward to every weekend.
  4. Snuggly Blankets
    How nice is it to watch TV on the sofa under a snuggly warm blanket ahhh.
  5. Pasta Bakes
    Yes we can cook hot, warming meals again. With summer heat, I just don’t feel like eating hot meals, but with winter we’ve got pasta bakes, spag bol, shepherd’s pie – all those warming meals to have in the evenings, yum.
  6. Fairy Lights
    Winter means Christmas which means fairy lights galore at home and outside. I love it when the high streets have their Christmas lights switched on, the dark suddenly gets cheerful.
  7. Fireworks
    Fireworks in the sky for Bonfire Night, it always seems to last for a week and I love watching the big displays, so pretty.
  8. Hot Cocoa
    Having a hot cocoa to warm up my hands and drink before I go to bed.
  9. Wooly Hats
    I love wearing my wooly hat, it keeps me warm when I’m out and about and is great for hiding a bad hair day!
  10. Heating on
    When it’s cold, I love sitting by the radiator and reading my latest chick lit book!

Winter – I embrace you!

    • Haha, I’m one of those summer people, but you know, I’m actually feeling good about winter since writing this list. And I do love being all snug and warm in front of the telly! x


  1. Snuggly socks are fab – and hot chocolate. I do love autumn even more for that, when it’s not too freezing but there’s a crisp in the air, but you’re right about huge wintery meals too. I’ve already made soup 🙂


    • Oh yes, so happy to have found my fleecy socks at the bottom of the drawers! Autumn is so nice, but winter hmmm – I’m getting there! Mmmm soup, yes that’s a great winter meal 🙂 xx


  2. I am such a fan of winter for all of these reasons! Winter always seems to be the start of new things for me too – probably because I’ve never grown out of September being a new school year! I also love crisp winter mornings and investing in a new winter coat 🙂 #twinklytuesday


  3. I love all of the above! You just made me go oooo! Especially the snuggly blankets (or dressing gown) and hot chocolate. I really like the winter months. Maybe not the standing on cold train platforms but the rest of it! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday


  4. I love hot water bottles and blankets….I’m pretty much like a little old ldy in the winter months I love a good hibernation day 😉
