What happens in Winter?

funny-picture-winter-problemsThis week I am tasked with thinking up a different theme each week for a newsletter. Easy, you’d think. It’s Halloween then Bonfire Night then Christmas.

Except that’s only three themes and there’s a rather large gap in between. Initially, off the top of my head, I could only think of being cold and sitting inside and doing nothing. Not fascinating stuff and certainly not worthy of being published in a newsletter.

It’s November 1st. Are we ready for Christmas yet? No, I don’t mean have you put up your decorations? That would be crazy, wouldn’t it Oxford Street? Sure, we may have done a little Christmas shopping but who doesn’t want to leave it until 3.30 on Christmas Eve? Let us have November first then we’ll start properly focusing on the birth of that chap that we don’t even believe existed.

The nights grow darker quicker and the frost sticks to your windscreen longer each morning but other than that, What Happens In Winter?

We rarely get a decent amount of snow in the UK so the wintry activities such as sledging, snowman making and eating yellow snow are a half day activity. Snuggling up by the fire with the family usually equates to Netflix for one in bed. Lets not even think about how painful and embarrassing ice skating and what even is snow-shoeing?

CoorsLooking out the window, it’s actually a clear blue sky. Perfect for a winter activity, some might argue. However, there is nobody outside and I am indoors writing this blog. Even my dog doesn’t want to leave the house – and he has a jumper on.

So if anyone does work out What Happens In Winter, please do let me know. I’ll be in bed watching Netflix.
