One of the many funny Canberraisims is that you don't turn your heater on till ANZAC day. The gorgeous mild autumn we have been having has made this fairly easy this year, however in the last week the night time temperatures have started to plunge into the low single digits. A work colleague down from Queensland told us he was needing to wear thermals!
While my thermals are still safely tucked away in the cupboard we have started piling on extra blankets at night so today I decided that the time has come and switched our summer weight doona over to the thick duck down one. I made up the bed with crisp, fresh linen and topped it with the swathe of light as air but warm as a cuddle down doona.
I adore our soft, fluffy, warm winter doona. There is something incredibly comforting about snuggling down into its soft folds on a cold night. It gives off a feeling a security and safety, the kind that can protect you from the terrifying ghost in the scary move we watched last night.
Tonight we are headed out to a great party, but I'm already looking forward to coming home and snuggling in.
Are you a doona or a blanket person? And have you put your winter bedclothes on yet?
