Winter warmth

It feels like a year ago, although in fact it was less than two weeks, that Mr B, Emily and I took a little pre-move to Adelaide weekend away to visit my parents in the Blue Mountains, about an hour north-west of Sydney, Australia.It was one of those "best of winter" weekends, chock full of simple pleasures enjoyed with people we love. We toasted marshmallows, took walks in woods and gardens, played croquet on a bumpy lawn, ate Devonshire tea with scones baked in flower pots, explored thrift shops, waltzed in the kitchen (in track suits), played home-made Pictionary amid much hilarity, and celebrated Mr B's birthday dinner with home-cooked burgers and fries.

What do you like to do when visiting family?
