Although we've had a few bright, sunny days this week it's clear that winter is on its way. We've given in and put the heating on. I'm not a huge fan of winter. It goes on too long for my liking. I feel the same way about Christmas. If we could confine both of them to the same two weeks at the end of December and beginning of January, I'm sure we'd enjoy them far more.
