This Saturday I’m joining in Maxabella’s weekly gratefulness blog link up.
This week marked the start of another winter here in Melbourne. If you haven’t lived through a Melbourne winter, let’s just say it’s a fairly bleak, freezing three months!
I’m hardly winter’s biggest fan, but there are lots of wonderful simple things that only wintertime allows you to appreciate…
Little things, like toasting marshmallows…ugg boots…open fireplaces…cuddles in bed when it’s freezing outside…DVD nights on the sofa…the kids wearing beanies with pom-poms…the absence of spiders…hot chocolate…homemade soups and stews…muddy walks in gumboots, followed by a hot shower…taking the kids to see the snow…the anticipation of daffodils blooming in the garden 🙂
What are you grateful for today?
