Have you noticed how blue the sky gets in the winter? I suppose it’s Mother Nature’s way of saying, “Winter doesn’t have to be bleak. I give you blue skies!”
Of course a blue sky in the tropics is a different thing altogether, but they both are beautiful to me.

And soon the beauty of white winters will be over. Don’t tell me you won’t miss it one bit.
But seriously, I challenge you to come up with a list, no matter how short, of all the wonderful things about winter and all the fabulous things you can do just because it is winter. Snuggling into your uggs counts!
Here’s my list:
- Cosy evenings and mornings with my significant other
- Enjoying a steaming mug of chai (something I wouldn’t like in the summer)
- Fresh crisp mornings
- Wonderful sunsets
- Beautiful snow covered trees
- Serenity when snow falls
- Wearing colourful scarves
What would your list say?

Sorry folks. For those of you wishing that you’d wake up today with the winter over, I’ve got disappointing news. It is still winter. But look at the bright side. Starting on the 22nd of December, days started to get longer. Perhaps not as quickly as you’d like it to be, but soon British Summer Time will be upon us. Patience, little grasshoppers.

If creating snowpeople does not appeal to you as I suggested yesterday, then perhaps you may want to spend some time pondering what your 2011 will be like, and how your 2010 has been. Come, sit on a bench amidst nature, while you sip a hot cup of cocoa with tiny marshmallows on top.

If shopping isn’t your scene, may I suggest spending some time with your favourite people building snowpeople or making snow angels? Now, if in the event you find your snowperson missing, please, do not ring 999! Let’s not hog the emergency lines in case legitimate emergency calls cannot get through.
