I really hate the autumn and winter...
Don't get me wrong there are a couple of nice things. Like the amazing show of colour that mother nature is putting on at the moment with the turning trees. Eating lots of home-cooked stews, casseroles and soups, made with yummy seasonal veg like pumpkins and squash. Obviously there are the cosy nights in with a yarny project or two, a glass of wine and bar of yummy chocolate (I know, I know! I do the wine and choccy thing all year round, but there's something even sweeter about it when it's all dark and chilly out!)
Yeah, I do recall maybe mentioning that I might have possibly been looking forward to this time of year - mostly because I had forgotten, or possibly blocked it from my memory, about how miserable and depressing these dark nights are! Do you know the streetlights came on at 4.15 tonight! By 4.45 it was pitch black! Dark! Night time! It wasn't even a week ago that the clocks changed and I'm already fed up of this! I can already feel myself getting grumpy, maybe even cranky, possibly a bit huffy too - I'm sure, at the mere mention of this, a wee shiver just ran down my man's spine!
Oh, and this is all before the temperature has dropped below double figures, but be sure that 'that rant' will come as soon as it does!
So anyhow I thought I would start a new blog post feature. I'm not thinking of a set day or time for this it, just whenever I need something to smile about, a wee pick me up or something to make me chuckle. Hmmm, 'a wee pick me up', I think that sounds just about right.
So here is today's wee pick me up...
Oh, and if you have any I would love to hear your 'wee pick me up' tips and treats too,
ps : To make things easier, and a bit less time consuming for myself, I've decided to start replying to your comments directly in the comments section which is now embedded below. I hope you don't mind too much?
