A Frosty Start....



The last few mornings have been decidedly cold and frosty over here. Winter seemed to appear all of a shot. Here are a few little bits that are making my early morning starts a little cosier...




 I love these little tubs of porridge first thing. Just add hot milk or water and away I go. This one had added seeds so I should be feeling a whole lot healthier and energetic today!



 This new instant coffee is so handy! All the flavour of the machine version in a little can! My trusty travel mug is also a great standby for the car on these cold mornings.








I love looking out the kitchen window first thing at the winter colour in the garden. The plants seem to stand out more than usual against the grey cooler backgrounds! Sometimes it really is the simplest things that can lift your spirits!! So what warms your heart and gets you moving on these chilly mornings?

  5. I woke today and the first thing I saw from my window was the still foggy landscape. The fog stayed unti 12 oclock. The sun sets at around 4 pm. But I hardly notice coz I blog all day. :)

  7. That instant coffee seems so practical, I don't think we have it here.
    My garden is also full of beautiful warm colors, love to watch x

  8. My little pup Molly is what gets me going in the morning...she always up for a nice early morning walk! Chilly temperatures, frost, fog, rain or snow...makes no difference to her...throw a stick and she's even more happy. I think she would love one of those pots of porridge too.

  9. I'm in denial that winter is just around the corner!

    Although it is pretty cold in the morning, what really cheers me up is a nice cup of hot chocolate or latte from Neros! xo

  14. Hi Anne!
    Thanks for your comment! My favorite thing on a cold and gloomy morning is a cup of my favorite tea in my favorite mug. Kind of silly, but it does the trick!
