Some days it’s just so busy at the office that I never get near a client file… today I’ve been given the chance to post not once, but twice! I was a little bit worried that Meik’s answers to my questions wouldn’t arrive before the end of the day… but here they are! Meik’s second book, The Little Book of Lykke comes out today, and … Continue reading Meik Wiking: The Little Book of Lykke Blog Tour

I really enjoyed the A Weekend With… series and I may well go back to them at some stage in the future, but I feel the need for something different at the moment. It’s summertime and we’re … Continue reading A Word for the Weekend…. New series

That’s right: you have 2 weeks to plan your Hygge for that day. How will you celebrate International Hygge? Will you wear your slippers or socks to work? Will you buy cakes to share … Continue reading International Hygge Day
***I was actually sent a free copy of the book to review, but all thoughts and reactions are my own and not at all biased*** OK. At least, not biased by being sent the book to review, only by the fact that Brontë Aurell is an awesome Motherhygge who puts into one sentence as much common sense about hygge as many writers take a book … Continue reading Hygge Book: The Essence of Hygge by Brontë Aurell
