As the days grow shorter and colder, it is easy to feel as dreary inside as the weather outside. Here in the Southern Hemisphere we don't have Christmas, New Year's Day or St Valentine's Day to bring cheer and happiness to the colder months.
On such wintry days, lighting a scented candle (or two ... or three) can make all the difference, turning gloomy into warm and inviting. Add a steaming cup of soup or hot chocolate and a flickering fire, and wintry weather can become a real celebration.
What do you do to cheer yourself up when the weather is cold and grey?
