The Single Girls Guide to Surviving a Melbourne Winter

1. > Firstly, have a good bed: the nest is most important... one can add accessories too... like a woollen underlay (mmmmm); feather doona; flannelette sheets!; flannel pj's; fluff-covered hot water bottle (only on really cold nights b/c the old HWB has some serious single-girl connotations); some fluffy throw cushions; A TEDDY BEAR; too many pillows (i have currently four plus the two throw cushions).

2. > Good books! Anything by Chuck Palahnuik or ...

3. > Good soups: organic potato & leak soup; anything lentil; anything bean feast - YUMBLES!

4. > Massage: Shiatsu / Swedish or Foot.

5. > A good heater - I currently possess a kick-arse radiant heater that heats up my room in 15mins. Am thinking of getting a timer on it so that it starts up before I get out of bed in the morning.

6. > Good friends and a high quality red wine.

7. > A furry pet - ie. cat or small cute dog or small man.

8. > Your own creativity.

9. > Crappy TV to lull your mind into a state of complacency ie. Big Brother or Super Nanny (I can't believe they took so long to think of that show! - I mean it seems so obvious to me. Go and tell people how to raise their kids, the one thing our society needs sorting out.)

10. > I've run out of ideas... anyone??
