A Winter List

A Winter List

Autumn has flown by in a whirl of leaves and has reached its muddy end; we now welcome in the new season of frosts and revel as one year comes to a close and another begins.

So what's in store for the winter months ahead?

  1. Have a festive film night and spend some quality time with family.
  2. Set goals for the new year.
  3. Enjoy the snow (if we get any) and the frost (if we don't), making sure to take lots of long walks.
  4. Whisk up some pancakes for breakfast and have a leisurely start to a weekend.
  5. Put together a photobook from the past year.
  6. Have a spa day at home.
  7. Try out some new wintry recipes.
  8. Craft more. Make time for hobbies.
  9. Do yoga, pilates, or meditate to avoid the stresses of the season.
  10. Plan out the year in the garden.
