Friday five: Five reasons to love Winter


When anyone asks, I say I’m a Winter person. In Summer as the humidity soars, I complain about the heat and find my only comfort comes from ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream. That is until Winter rolls around and I am very quickly reminded how cold it gets (and we live on the Gold Coast!)… and I seem to forget this every year.

As the mornings get colder and the days shorter, we have to remember to be positive! I’m going to share with you five reasons why I love Winter. Please do the same!

  • Comfort food Casseroles, pies, curries, cakes, puddings… I should stop now. It’s only 11am and I’m feeling incredibly hungry 😦
  • Winter movie season The big Summer movies relased in the US become our movies for the July school holidays. Less than 1 month until Half-Blood Prince!
  • Knitting It would make more sense for me to do this in Summer so I have things to wear in Winter, but it just doesn’t feel right. It’s cheap, it’s easy and if you don’t know how, it’s easy to teach yourself the basics using books from the library.
  • Hot chocolate Yes this could go under the ‘comfort food’ category, but it’s really important for it to have its own mention! Marshmallows are compulsory.

And lastly but most importantly…

  • School holiday activities The July school holidays are always such a busy and exciting place for Gold Coast libraries. To make sure you don’t miss out on our creepy and crawly activities, check out our calendar of events online to see what’s on. Bookings are a must of you want to secure your place, and activities are filling up quickly!

    Amber, I’m with you – I’m a winter gal at heart! My five favourite things about winter are:

    1. Winter fashion: Scarves, jackets and funky tights are my favourite things to wear.
    2. Weekend sleep-ins: How great is it to curl up in bed on a cold Sunday morning?
    3. Exercise is so much easier! I am not a fan of melting in the summer heat, and I have to confess, I get a bit lazy about exercise in the warmer months.
    4. Winter PJs: There’s something about flannelette PJs that’s just so comforting!
    5. No frizz! In winter, my hair stays nice and straight, thanks to the absence of the summer humidity.

    It’s very un-Gold Coast of me, but I have to say, my least favourite thing about living on the Coast is the fact we don’t get a ‘real’ winter, and the cold snap we do get doesn’t last for very long…

    I have just read Knit two by Kate Jacobs. It is chick-lit at its best, funny moving and easy to get into. A great read for a cold winter’s day.
