Seashells and driftwood

A small group of us got invited to a colleague's lovely beach house on the weekend. We lunched, fed the birds, walked on the beach, where I found some beautiful shells and a piece of driftwood to remember the day by. As the winds howled across the shore and I wrapped my cardi tightly around myself, I suddenly realised that summer is well and truly over...

I don't like the cold. But I've decided that instead of whinging about it the way I normally do, I'm going to think of all the things I actually like about winter; like being all tucked up in bed reading a book, cuddling up to Stu (my very own heated pillow), taking a long bath with scented bath salts or making lots of my favourite homemade chicken soup and of course, drinking lots of wine to keep warm.

Winter doesn't seem so bad afterall.

I like the beach in Summer and even in Winter when the surf is rough. I think the sea is just beautiful any time of year!

Hmm. With the way Winter begins here in September, that lasts through March and April, I can't quite say the same about "Winter isn't so bad after all".
