Winter Warmers

I don't mind winter in Australia, infact I actually quite like it. Compared to winter in the UK, it isn't too unbearably cold. I love rugging up in cosy knits, boots and scarves and going out for refreshing winter walks.  I also enjoy snuggling up on the sofa with my kids, watching a movie and drinking hot chocolate.

I must share our favourite hot chocolate recipe as it's really very simple and extremely indulgent!
Heat milk on the stove in a saucepan, add half a block of chocolate (broken up) and stir until the chocolate has melted - it's divine! Half a block of chocolate usually does about 4 mugs worth of milk.  Add more or less chocolate according to taste...yummy...

Got my eye on these rather nice knits at the moment!
