I wish I had a three day weekend ahead of me. The week’s been a little busier than I’d really prefer it to be. That includes the two days I spent out of action due to some stomach problem. So this weekend is going to have to do a lot of coddling. Food, inevitably, will be part of that and, for me, I like to … Continue reading Book Friday: The Five O’Clock Apron by Claire Thomson
It’s the first weekend in September!!! Yay! Just imagine, it’s almost time for everything nice and spicy and happy… although, in my quest to live a life full of hygge I have discovered that every time of year is the right time for nice and spicy and happy. Hygge would be no use as a feeling if it were confined just to one (or two) … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Sarah Raad
Hot topic on one of my Twitter timelines this week was whether it is cultural appropriation for other people (ie not from Lancashire) to eat Lancashire Hotpot or whether it’s a step too far to let anybody from Yorkshire eat it. There was thoughts of some retaliation with the banning of Yorkshire puddings in any town west of Saddleworth. Be aware, there may at some … Continue reading A Word for the Weekend: Rove

The password will be in the newsletter, so if you want to know what the rest of the post says, you’ll have to sign up. Details are on this post. … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Sevina Yates
I had a complaint from a member of the Hygge Nook last week. To know how unusual that is, you have to remember that this is a group of 11,000 people for whom one of the big arguments last year was whether to put the jam or the cream on first. They’re a friendly, hyggely, accepting lot who appreciate differences add spice but work best … Continue reading A Weekend With….. Amy Bull
That has to be one of the coolest names ever! And even more appropriate if you consider that Natasha is a sculptor and ceramicist, so her work literally does go into the fire to be transformed into something beautiful! In the Hygge Nook, we have a shed load of creative people. Some create for joy, others do it as their jobs. One thing’s for sure, … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Natasha Phoenix
Last year I ran a series of posts called A Weekend With… I was lucky enough to ask some of the most hyggely bloggers out there about how they found hygge helped them live their lives. You can read the posts by clicking the tag A Weekend With. Part of the reason I love hygge is that it is so home-based, and so egalitarian. Queens … Continue reading A Weekend with….. a difference.
It’s Friday! Yay! I have made it through another week and this time I actually made time to write for the blog! So much of my time and energy at the moment is being taken up with writing about happiness for the new book (it will be ready soon) that after I’ve done the paid work there isn’t a lot of energy left for blog … Continue reading A Word for the Weekend: Huffle-buffs
