Only one thing I want to do

When the snow starts there is only one thing I want to do, and that's stay inside reading and warm.  I want to wear my Pj's, dressing gown, bed socks, hair pulled back, no make-up...(aren't i a catch?), and read in a quiet corner.  If i had the sense of smell I'd want my home to be filled with Christmas spices, but as it is when i do have a horrible sneezing fit and catch my breath i can only smell menthol and lemsip!  Poor Daisy Dog has hardly been out on a long walk, she has such awfully short legs, but all the same!!

Anyway, when i do get a moment to curl up and read, with all the blankets over me, i like to read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe when it is cold and snowy outside.  This book, and all of the film and T.V. adaptations which have followed are an integral part of Christmas for me.  The old, old BBC version gets brought out and watched by the fire, just like when i was very small.  The newer film version also gets taken out of the DVD box and played, on repeat as i wonder around our home, catching some scenes, missing others.  The fact that it is merely there is enough for me.  The fact that it is a constant is quite enough.

Oh,I love to snuggle up all cosy when it's snowing outside as well. Bella is on at me to take her for a walk so I suppose I'll have to venture out later. Enjoy your reading.Saw the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe for the first time last year...so magical! :0)
