10 SIGNS YOU CAN'T WAIT FOR WINTER

Most of us live for the hot weather and the long, sunny days that summer brings. But then there are others - us included - that flourish when the temperatures drop, the nights draw in and cooling down is replaced by cosying up.

Here are our 10 signs that you can't wait for winter...

1. You've secretly embraced the fact that UK summers are short (and like it)
