Research comes first…. Always x

Hyggering that won’t cost the Earth: that’s a great ambition. I’m busy today, but I grabbed a few minutes at lunchtime to trawl the internet looking for resources (books, videos, websites) that will give me a great start on my year of bringing less in to get more out of life. Some of the books I have already: greening my life has always been an … Continue reading Research comes first…. Always x

What’s the Future for my Blog?

It’s three years almost since I started this little blog: I only aimed to write for one year, to live hyggely and to see what effect it had on me, a weary and worn soul who had escaped from school into an office and was looking at enjoying the little things in life. It’s been a fantastic three years. I opened a Facebook page, and … Continue reading What’s the Future for my Blog?

Easter is a natural time for new beginnings. … Continue reading Why Lent might be a good time to start again.

The tree came down this weekend. It was actually quite a quick process to de-Christmasify the house this year. I didn’t put a lot of Christmas decorations up, some of what I put up I have left as Winter decorations and some of my decorations were edible ones (sweets, nuts and oranges) that disappeared over the season anyway. So here I am on the first … Continue reading Hibernating for Humans: Settling down for the Winter

All is Calm, All is Bright: Waiting

I am not the world’s best at waiting. I don’t hold secrets well, and when I was younger used to drive my brothers wild by taunting them. A lot like the Ghost of Christmas Present in Scrooged. I’m so glad I wore my pretty dress. But these last few days before Christmas, especially for me and anyone else who started and finished organising early, are … Continue reading All is Calm, All is Bright: Waiting
