When I started up my A Weekend With… series I had a few blog heroes that I wanted desperately to feature. I wanted Lucy of Attic 24, knew I had to have Gillian of Tales From a Happy House and dreamed of having Jane from the Posy blog. Jane no longer writes her blog, due to reasons she’ll explain below, but it’s still there in … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Jane Goble of Posy
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, … Continue reading I went to the Woods….
I am feeling a little paralysed at the moment. Not literally, of course, but metaphorically. My brain is a swirl of issues and worries and matters that all too often threaten my smooth nature. It’s not very hyggely. Work (by which I mean my day job as Office Ninja at Peter Kneale Solicitor) has recently expanded to 6 days a week as we trial Saturday … Continue reading Finding Hygge in the Small Things
This week’s post comes from Gillian, of Tales From A Happy House. Gillian’s blog hit my feed several years ago, when her stories of family life in Leeds struck a chord. Her house was beautifully scandi in style, and she liked so many of the things I liked…. I think it’s always wonderful when you realise that there are so many people out there … Continue reading A Weekend With….. Gillian of Tales From A Happy House
I think I need more practise on the computer on how to upload PDF files to share. I think I do. I have been busy this last week with two things: I am still getting on with writing the next book in my hygge series (What! You hoped I’d stop at one! Fie, what foolishness!) on Summer Hygge. Yesterday was the chapter on what to … Continue reading A gift from me to you on a sunny Wednesday… No strings attached.
This is a photograph of a modern family at play. Can you see? There are three children, all with something in front of them, heads down, occupied with their own worlds. Get me. I’m the one taking the photo, so my phone isn’t far from my hand, is it? And I think after this picture was taken, I posted to Facebook so I’m really not … Continue reading Hygge is not…. 24/7
Continuing the tour!! Hygge is synonymous with a warm drink. If you look at so many of the Kindle books about hygge that came out, so many of them feature a pair of hands clasped around a warm drink of tea, coffee or (the hygge favourite) cocoa. Indeed, when Meik Wiking’s favourite description of hygge is as “cocoa by candlelight” then you know a hot … Continue reading Hygge is… warm drinks
The Book Tour continues…. Taking care of ourselves and those we love is a part of hygge. We only have one life, one body and to be free to enjoy time with those we love for as long as we are able to, it behoves us to take care of that body. Hygge has a very balanced way of looking at life. Not too much … Continue reading Book Tour Day 3: Hygge is…. Taking care of our own body
