As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the cold snap hit last week. Our mild Autumn has had me frustrated. I've been yearning for long walks with rosy cheeks, afternoons spent by the fire and warming stews for dinner followed by steaming puddings for weeks now. I think I'd actually just like to live at Hogwarts, if that can be arranged? I have been waiting for my letter for some time now...
Anyway - so whilst others lamented the frosty ground and nip in the air, it was all I could do to contain my excitement. Summer sun is all well and good, but I'm happiest in chunky knits, lined leather boots and with a hot chocolate in hand.
The pictures above were taken last year and then Spring came round too quickly for me to share. Some were taken with my Mum on photography walks, others on family days. But I'm wishing for more of those times this Winter. The anticipation of enjoying the chilliest months with my favourite folk really warms my heart.
Now mulled wines all round, yeah?
