The winter has finally arrived with a vengeance. We have had cold nights and cold days (not on a Canada scale of coldness), but certainly cold enough for me. Now the snow is falling and I feel the need for comfort food. The fire is lit, the cats are curled up and snoring or purring happily and I just have to have a bowl of porridge. It really is perfect for making me feel all warm and comfortable. I have to admit, I like my porridge made with milk and then swirled with golden syrup - I am not sure how people manage it made with water and salt (ugh!). I haven't made any plans to go anywhere tomorrow, so am settling down with comfort food, books and films. In my opinion, snow is best when it can be admired from inside a cosy house.
