Hello! My name is Jo, but I usually go by my initials Jem. On WordPress I’m down as HyggeJem. I’m a wife, mother, Office Ninja, quizzer, reader, crafter, lover of all things comfortable and a seeker after truths. And now I’m seeking to curate a hyggelig life. I want to make sure that the things I do and the way I run my life help me to create oases (yes, that’s the plural of oasis) where I can breathe, recharge and be hygge.
Big Thanks Must Go to my husband and employer Peter Kneale Solicitor. If he didn’t employ me and let me sit in front of a computer, I wouldn’t have the time to run my blog and the Facebook group that has grown out of it.
How to Hygge the British Way is my blog about being hyggely, that’s the Danish word for feeling safe, secure and happy with life, but in a British way. So I’ll be looking at the things that the Danes (and other scandi and nordic people do) and trying to find the British equivalent.
To find your way about the blog go to the home page and scroll up and down the posts there. They’re about lots of interesting things and ideas to help you hygge happily. There’s recipes, books, articles and more besides.
If you know what you’re looking for, try the resources menu. There are short cuts to all the posts on books, homemaking, recipes and articles. These pages get added to all the time, so keep coming back to see what’s new.
And connect with me on social media!
You can join The Hygge Nook on Facebook as well, it’s a closed group dedicated to living hygge in ordinary everyday lives.
