Winter is coming!

According to scientologists, Autumn will end this month in the southern hemisphere.

That means the days are getting shorter and the air cooler as winter begins to settle in and make itself at home for the next three months. As much as Autumn has been a blast, with its warm sun and its beautiful changing colours, it has to come to an end.

But don’t despair, you have a few days left to enjoy the warm Autumn air and to feel the lovely sun rays on your skin. Use this time to go for a picnic, before it gets too nippy to do so. Take the family out to the park and enjoy a nature burst, visit the beach and bask in the sun. Go outside as much as possible before the Winter keeps you in. Remember to wear sunblock all the time.

Even in Winter, there is still so much to do and experiment with, such as trying out different types of hot drinks, like making your own hot chocolate.


  • 3 1/2 cups sugar
    2 1/4 cups cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon table salt
  • Whole milk for serving

    In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.

    For individual servings, pour 1 cup whole milk into a microwave-safe mug, and microwave on high just until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. For a larger batch of cocoa, warm the milk in a saucepan set over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the milk boil; as it warms, stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.
