Beautiful, vivid descriptions. This piece has an atmosphere to it that is captivating. Very nicely done!
Love to read a story from a fellow Australian! Thing to remember, though, if you wanted to place in this challenge is that most of the judges will be North Americans and they will understand Winter in a different way. Plus winter is not integral to the story you've written - which is really about hope and would fit well into a topic like photography or careers. Having said that, your descriptions of the environment are very evocative, giving a clear sense of place.
Beautiful imagery! I just finished reading 'All the Rivers Run' - an Aussie classic - have you read it? I love the touch that she threw on her clothes over her PJs ;-) Good work!
