    Or am I odd? :laugh:

    I love wrapping up warm and walking in the darker evenings.

    And I especially love crisp clear frosty mornings!

    I also like how most people stay inside because its cold/dark, and this means they don't bother me on my walks :dita:


    I know some of us don't like the darker nights - I used to hate walking in the dark and I still won't go anywhere there isn't street lights, walking back from my friends there is 4 street lights out on a big corner and I have to walk real fast on that part! I'd love to be brave enough to take the dogs on the dog walking field at night... but no chance, defo not on my own!

    I know I might get the conkers and string them up around the doors :laugh:

    Citrus candles are supposed to help.... but most things with a smell bug my head, I can't have much scented stuff.

    I love winter just as much as Oscar.

    Long winter nights and short winter days.

    Six months of deep, deep snow and barely another living soul in sight until spring.:001_smile:

    Love the autumn and winter too!! Lots of bilberries and blackberries all ready to be picked in the woods at the moment, then conkers followed by chestnuts.
    I've always used conkers to keep the spiders out too, but when I had a cat... I'll thread them and hang them this year thats a great idea :) :)
    Cant wait for some frosty morning walks on the heaths and in the woods. Quiet walks in the woods with snow falling and icy ponds.....and then coming back to a toasty woodburner...... yep loving the cold weather too!

    I love all the seasons. Autumn is bright colours and a nip in the air, a fresh chill and frost in the mornings.
    Already the mornings are darker, won't be long before I start bumping into low branches in the woods when out early with Indie :)
    Sadly I also love the clocks changing, just as it gets cold back goes the clock and the nights draw in. Lovely to pull the curtains and snuggle in for the night.

    Well, I was... Until all this talk of spiders started *shivers* Bloody hate the things!

    But I do love winter morning walks :) Wellies, big jackets, scarves, gloves, the boys in their jackets and coming home out of the cold and in to a warm house for a cuppa... Bliss :)

    There's nothing quite like the feeling of warming up by the fire when it's cold outside... But come January, I'll be dreaming about summer evening walks lol.

    Ahh, I love that I have laminate flooring this year :D (the ex would never agree to it :rolleyes: and the carpet was awful). I'm going to get them a big waterproof cushion so they can go on their bed when they are wet/muddy and I have a steam mop so quick and easy to clean the floors hehe.


    Oooh and I am going to have to get Izzy a little coat! :D Might get Chase one for when its peeing down cause he has lots of hair :laugh:

    I don't mind autumn/winter, I just hope I don't have to dig my car/van out quite so many times this year.

    I LOVE winter. There's far fewer people around and I can take Ollie out on longer walks because he doesn't have to die in the heat. I could do without the rain though, to be honest. He's a nightmare to dry off.
