Brrr it’s getting cold! 🌬❄️ I don’t know about you guys but I have a love hate relationship with autumn 🍂 and winter ❄️. I hate being cold, I can’t stand it! It takes me forever to warm up and I need like 100 layers just for it to be bearable. 😂 Whereas the boyfriend loves the cold and wears shorts in December (mad man)! Which means we do have a constant fight over the heating or he opens a window when it’s like -5 outside.
However, like I said there are reasons why I love this time of year despite me complaining it’s too cold. Hot chocolate is number one of course! Who doesn’t love being all cosy and warm by a fire (if you’re lucky enough to have one), under a blanket, in your favourite PJs, with a hot chocolate? I just love that feeling of being cosy and warm while its cold and horrible outside. As well as being cosy and warm I have more time to craft and cross stitch to my heart’s content because who wants to be outside when its cold and horrible when you can be in the warm and doing the hobbies you love?!
I also love the holidays that are coming up, Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas! I love seeing it all in the shops (although selling Christmas cake in October is a little early for me), getting all excited and hyped up the closer and closer the day gets, carving pumpkins, setting off fire works and eating as much chocolate that Santa brought you as you can. xD
I’m probably one of the few people who like Christmas present shopping, I know my mum isn’t very keen on it. xD It can be difficult working out what to get everyone (while trying to remember what you got them last year) and it can be expensive but I just love seeing the millions of shopping bags in the back of my car after a shopping trip and then unpacking them into a tidy pile in the spare room ready to be wrapped and given away. I really enjoy as well wrapping the presents for some reason, not sure why, I think its because I get excited for the person the present is for. I can’t wait to see the look on people’s faces when they open their presents (although in the back of my mind I’m praying they like it).
So I know this is a bit of a random post but for some reason I felt like sharing my thoughts on the approaching winter months. I would love to hear what you guys think about this time of year, is it too cold for you? Or can you not wait for December when its really cold? xD
