Melbourne Winter - Sunshine and Snow!

Melbourne today is aiming for a top temperature of 11 degrees. That's it. E-L-E-V-E-N!

The sun might be out now, but this morning the suburbs were covered with a light dusting of snow, and Connex goers had real reason to complain about the delays and cold. Being one of those who catches public transport on days like today, I would like to start by saying that Connex don't do a bad job most of the time. But when they do it wrong, they do it very wrong.

While waiting between East Richmond and Burnley this morning (15 minutes, signal failure), I was pondering where I would rather be and what I would rather be doing. Bed was of course number 1 on my list, followed closely by Hot Chocolate in front of a fire.

But since work calls once again, I now find myself several hours later still wishing I was in bed or in front of a fire. Next best thing? Sharing todays recipe and fab find with you.

Keep those toes warm on wintery Melbourne days with these Whooga Boots!
Arn't they just divine? Your feet will feel like they never got out of bed. And just to turn up the temperature in here a little more, a recipe for the best hot chocolate going...


1L (4 cups) milk
100g good-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
Marshmallows, to serve

Place the milk in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside for 1 minute.
Place 20g of the chocolate in each of four heatproof serving glasses. Pour the hot milk over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate melts and is smooth. Top with marshmallows and sprinkle with the remaining chocolate.

Enjoy and Stay Warm!!

Thanks to for recipes
