#643 “A cold wind was blowing from the north, and it made the trees rustle like living things.”


Given it is Spring here in Australia at present and the horrid, I mean disgusting 45'c heat is on its way. I so miss the start of winter, the autumn leaves falling and the trees all stiffen up and look like they are sleeping. It’s hard to remember why we even try to do things outside when it’s so cold sometimes and honestly compared to most of my European friends, we really don't have that cold a winter. It’s hard to remember why we love winter at all. But we DO love it. Sure, there are things we absolutely hate about it - things we can’t stand! Car windscreens icing up, feeling like your nose will fall off. But for every one thing I hate, there are at least two things I love. So without further ado: the unconventional things I love about winter.

I hate bugs. Haaaate them. Like, bye bugs! Hate you every day! So the fact that for some reason we don’t have bugs during the winter months, or I never see them, makes winter so much more appealing! I don’t know if they hibernate or die, and honestly I don’t care. All I know that they go somewhere; heaven or under my stairs, and stay there until it gets to be about spring again and the flying cockroaches start again. Yes I said Flying… UGgh. Until that time, I live in peace.

BE ACTIVE! I love winter because I get to do things that I wouldn’t normally do! Like doing snowboarding, or skiing after a six hour drive. I adore staying active, getting sunshine, taking in the scenery are all vital parts of enjoying the experience. Winter is really short in Australia, and not like the white winter you have. So one must travel to get some entertainment. If we don’t take advantage of all the good things winter has to offer, then you spend your whole winter just sulking. Participating in things like an ice skating rink, throwing a snowball fight, outdoor hot tubbing, or do anything that gets you off the couch and into some fresh air. I’m not saying you can’t have a lazy day; I do all the time.

To quote one of the greatest movies of all time (ahem Legally Blonde,) “Exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy :)

Once you get past the part where it gets really cold around about August here, you’ll begin to understand why I love winter. There is something about the blue dawn light seeping through our windows, or the chilly mornings that make your bed seem like heaven on earth. You can’t replace the feeling you get when you sit in front of a fireplace talking to your family and friends. Accept the fact that everyone has to deal with it. Winter will be what you make it. So make it count!
