By the time winter arrives I am eager to embrace all things cosy and warm. I like how the season gives us a good excuse to stay indoors and be a little more indulgent. It's time to hibernate and catch our breath. The landscape turns into a winter wonderland and it's mother nature's way of telling us to slow down. So put the kettle on, pull on some woolly socks and get comfortable on the sofa. Open up a good book and tuck into some home baked chocolate brownies and remember, a little indulgence is good for the soul!
