This weeks word is - Currently.
Currently. Everything is the same. Just colder. Currently we are heading straight for Christmas gathering up every piece of winter we can, even if we don't want it. Winter is the worst month for me because the air and weather effects my breathing and general health and the dark mornings and nights effect my 'mental' health. Yes, I am looking forward to Christmas. Though only because the sooner it's here the sooner Spring will return and we can play outside again :)

Question of the Week.

When Winter blues strike you, what do you do to repel them?I like to get up early, but not too early. I like the sun to greet me as I get out of bed and so I rise about 8am, pull on my clothes and then come and snuggle with the dog on the sofa, watching YouTube on the Xbox. After breakfast, I wrap up good and well, complete with wellies and have a brisk long walk with little man to tire him out and then as we arrive home the thought that we don't need to leave the house again is comfort enough! We get straight back onto that sofa, with our cosy blanket, while I edit photos or write up blog posts and play with his toys. A lunch of homemade lentil soup or a dinner of mashed potato complete the day providing a full belly from the best comfort food and a great Netflix session with my bearded one. 
Long and short of it? Stay cosy, get fresh air, eat well and make yourself happy. :P 

Have you had a nice week guys? Let me know what you are thankful for this week in the comments.

  1. I loved the #bdib chat on Friday too! It was a fun one... I love talking about stuff we love rather than just blogging tips all the time!


    1. It was awesome wasn't it? Yes! It makes a change and helps you get to know people better.


  2. Yay! So glad you liked my Fortkerk post!
    I have never experienced winter before. I will in December If everything goes right :D

      Oh you may regret it...haha. Just make sure you have plenty layers on :P


  3. Getting up in the dark and coming home from work in the dark are my least favourite things about the winter.

    I definitely thankful for my warm bed this morning as it's very very cold outside :)

    1. I'm so lucky I don't have to go to work at this time of year but I know Jakes had weeks like that recently!
