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 annual holiday seems like ages away now. I set a reminder on my phone, a countdown using the Days Left widget on my phone. It’s now standing at 17 days past the date. That means I’ve been back at my desk for a week, and the glow of relaxation has begun to fade. I’m not a fan of heat, so our family holidays tend … Continue reading Scotland…. Home of the Brave (and Me as well for a week) and location for Outlander!!!!

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

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.
Where were you when England got through to the semi-finals of the World Cup? For the first time since 2015, we have a team in the semi-finals of a World Cup football competition (yes, the women’s team made it there 3 years ago, and hopefully will do even better next year in France) and the men have proved themselves level with the ladies at last. … Continue reading Semi-final Football Hygge: It’s Coming Home….
#summerhygge is so underrated. I think because of the emphasis when hygge first hit the Really Big Time on it being about candles and cosiness, we forgot that cosiness isn’t a seasonal activity, so when summer happened last year, people felt inclined to put their hyggely thoughts away. I’m pleased that this year on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram hygge is still out there. We’re learning, … Continue reading Summer Hygge in the Home
