The Days That Make Winter Pass.

There's been a bit of a theme I've picked up on over the last few weeks. We're all a bit tired of winter; cozying up under blankets, embracing the rare natural light coming into our days, counting the seconds down until spring. Something that's keeping us going is the slower days. They're the ones that are made for warm drinks, baking delicious goodies and nesting the home.

Batman's fur is as full as it gets, he waddles around the house like a coal dusted cloud. It's almost time for a good malt and a nail trim ready for summer.

I spend most of my days off in a cozying ritual of preparing the bed in the softest, cleanest cotton sheets I can find, baking doughnuts for the second time (and it going much better!) And practicing my good housewife skills with hearty stews in the slow cooker.

On that note; is anyone keen to swap their slow cooker? Mine is made to feed 4-6 and is really all a bit too big? I'm looking to downsize?

So lets keep our heads high and know that summer will soon be here, we'll all be whooping with cheer and then it's the countdown to Christmas all over again! How brilliant!

What's keeping you all going through these colder days?

  1. Those doughnuts look amazing! Keeping me going is fluffy socks from the radiator (bliss), candles, snuggling up under a blanket with the dogs and/or cats and lots of baths :)

  2. Great post! Maybe you could post your doughnut recipe sometime, I'd love to learn how to make them! :)


  3. Slow days with home cooking (especially baking something sweet) and cups of tea are my favourites. It's so nice to wake up and know you don't need to go anywhere or do anything for once - especially when it's blowing a gale outside!


  4. For me, I'm spending this chilly weather playing the waiting game. Mid-March is when all of the unknowns will become known! Will I get that summer internship? Will I win the scholarships I applied for? Where will I be this summer? As I'm snuggled up here at my desk with a big cuppa tea and a few layers of blankets, I'm just thinking ahead to what I'll find out in the next few weeks!
    PS I love Costa coffee - definitely something I fell in love with last summer in Ireland and miss here in the States!

  5. TEACH ME ALL YOU KNOW. About housewifing and donuts in particular and about writing awesome things in general.

  6. I reckon there's some kind of slow cooker conspiracy out there, ours is far too big as well but shops just don't seem to sell small ones! xx
