It’s winter here, and it’s turning out to be a difficult one in terms of colds and flus.  Which is why I’ve been struggling to get any reading and blogging done.  I hope you will forgive me!
We’ve just succumbed to another round of colds – right after the last round.  And this time it’s worse.  Add to that, my youngest has an ear infection and of course, she has to be cutting her molars right now.  Needless to say, I’m not getting much sleep!
Colds and flus are just one of the many reasons I don’t like winter.
However, rather than focusing on my dislike of winter,  I’ve been trying to think about what I do like about it.  Here’s the short list I’ve managed to scrape together:
  • No flies
  • No misquitoes
  • No ants
  • No mice
  • Snuggling up in bed with the kids and reading
Perhaps if I lived where there was snow, I could add that to the list.  But I don’t 🙂
What do you like about winter? Help infuse me with some more positivity to get me through to the end of the season! (36 days and counting…)

Helen’s favourite genre is historical fiction with a strong romantic element.  She also enjoys contemporary romance, chick-lit and YA.  She’s not caught up in the spell of fantasy fiction, despite The Faraway Tree series being a strong influence in her childhood.
Helen is currently working on her first book, a Christian young adult novel set between two opposite but equally fascinating places in Australia.
