Sometime, about a year ago, I suddenly started hating the tube. 2 minutes at a signal and I am freaking out.

To take my mind off things I begun writing lists, each inspired by my journey on the underground.

Best Things about Winter

  • Being able to see your breath.
  • Rebel shaving. Only doing your armpits every other day.
  • Satsumas. Impossible to eat only one.
  • Mince pies.
  • Being able to look forward to summer.
  • Carbs.
  • Mulled Wine. 
  • Christmas jumpers. The worse the better.
  • Slagging off Christmas ads.
  • New coat and boots. The adult equivalent of new school uniform/ pencils.
  • Hoping you'll get snowed in..
  • Talking about being snowed-in once you've been snowed in.
  • More carbs.
  • Log fires. A legitimate and romantic excuse for laziness.
  • Brandy Butter. Alcohol + Sugar + Butter = Winner.
  • The smell of roast chestnuts from street vendors. Not that you'd ever dream of buying them.
  • Building a snowman. Hoping you don't roll dog pooh up in it.
  • Holidays are coming, holidays are coming...
  • Singing (or yelling) Christmas carols.
  • Christmas shopping. Gets a bad name
  • Advent Calendars. Chocolate before work? why not.
  • Laughing at the person still wearing their paper hat long after every one else has given up.
  • The blind optimism of new years resolutions.
  • Christmas Eve. Kicks New Years Eve's arse.
  • Epic turkey sandwiches.

  1. Don't forget the Red Cups at Starbucks. The sign that says "The Red Cups are coming" is almost as exciting as having your first toffeenut latte!!
