I think most Victorians would agree that this year in particular it has felt like it is the Winter that will never end! Don't get me wrong, Winter actually is one of my favourite seasons, but this one is just going and going and going ...
Maybe it is because I am now back being a full time employee and have to leave the house at ungodly morning hours, travel vast distances and traverse muddy school yards that I didn't have to do when I was being mum at home.

Somewhere along the way with our move to the seaside and 4 small children becoming larger, busier ones, I let something go in my life. And this was it. I want it back now.

Without guilt, without time constraints, without nay-saying.
If you want to get a sense of what I mean head to these two authors, and feel the cold of Winter blowing away for yourself:
Bec Taylor is a lover of all things quick, convenient and tasty. Her favorite foods are sloppy, cheesy and hopefully cooked in one pot as she hates doing the dishes!
