Yesterday felt like the first really cold ❄️ day in London, even though the sun 🌞 was out there was an icy chill 🌬 in the air and I suspect winter ⛄️ has arrived for good.
I have to admit, I really don’t love winter ❄️❄️❄️😔
I know, I know, it means Christmas 🎄 is coming and now is the time to wear your cosy jumpers whilst sitting by the fire 🔥 drinking mulled wine 🍷 and playing scrabble 🅰 , and there might even be snow 🌨. And I do love crisp bright sunny mornings ☀️😀.
I just don’t like the cold ❄️❄️❄️❄️. I spent 4 years in Scotland 💙, which was a nasty shock to the system, it really is COLD ☃⛄️🌨❄️🌬💨 🌪🌊 up there and the sun seems to barely come up during the deep depths of winter 🌥. One semester I came back to find I had left my window open just a tiny crack over the Christmas holiday🎆, and my room was an ice box ☃. I slept under two duvets, two blanket and a coat 👚👕👗I am still recovering.
So at this time of year it is very important to have as many antidotes 🔥🔥 as possible, and I have put together a list of cosy things to keep the winter blues away 💙💙💙😍.
