So I know that we are now in February but Happy New Year!
We had a wonderful but very manic Christmas in the Multiple Mummy household entertaining 16 people in total on Christmas day! You almost feel that after the mayhem of the Christmas break you need a holiday to recover. The nights seem to get longer and darker, the weather colder and wetter and the January blues creep in. Now in February we have snow! It is lovely to be out in it for short bursts and then fabulous to come home into the warmth a house and get all toasty again.
I however love this time of year and winter is in fact my favourite season. I love the crisp frost in the mornings, I love the darkness creeping in at night when you can start to light the house aglow with lamps and candles and I am not adverse to a bit of welly boot puddle splashing (with three children it is a must!). Most of all though, I love the fact that it is the time of year where I can get all cosy and snuggle up for winter. Mulled wine, hot chocolate, blankets, chocolate and a DVD are my idea of a perfect night in 9oh how things have changed). I love the freedom to wear chunkier and baggier clothes so the extra pounds of food you should not be eating don’t notice quite so much (or that’s what I tell myself) and to be makeup free of an evening after a bubbling soak in the tub.
