When the weather turns as cold as it has here up here in the North this past week, there’s nothing I love more than jumping straight into my pj’s and robe as soon as I get through the front door after work. Going to and coming home from work in the dark means I happily hibernate Mon-Fri – if it’s not raining on my lunch hour (which it usually is) I’m happy to go for a walk to get some daylight on my face, but I mostly end up quickly rushing back to the office because it’s so damn cold. And if this past week has taught me anything, it’s that I seriously need to invest in a new hat and gloves!
Those cosy nights in seem to be extending into my weekends – favouring staying in over going out and, sometimes, not even getting dressed on Sundays. Is there anything better than a Sunday spent in your pj’s watching your favourite films & drinking hot chocolate? I think not.
A few weeks back, I was invited to the Cotton Traders ‘summer sundown’ event. Marking the end of Summer, we celebrated the fun adventures that the sunny days had offered us – we even got a scrapbook with our favorite summer photos printed out – and welcomed the colder winter months with a ‘winter essentials’ good bag.
A camera malfunction (I’m no good with technology, so this basically means who knows what happened) meant that I was left with no snaps of the event. However, I can show you how much I’ve been loving my gifts and putting that hot water bottle to good use. All the essentials for a cosy night in this Winter.

Thanks again Cotton Traders for the fun event. I’m totally winter ready and praying for snow..
