It’s a peculiar thing about my life that Wednesday seems to be my spinning tops day. You know what I mean, the day when everything happens or seems to creep up and you spend the day in a tizzy wondering what to do next, or following a list that you had the foresight to write out the night before and getting three entries in before … Continue reading Spinning tops? No, I prefer spinning wool.
I’ve been browsing quotes about Autumn, and September, October and November as I get the next edition of Cosy Happy Hygge ready to go. There are so many to choose from… and not all of them nice. There is nothing in this world that unites everybody: that’s human nature. Say you like chocolate and most people will nod and agree, but there’s always somebody stood … Continue reading Oh, Autumn, how I love thee!
Wait… it’s September on Saturday? How did that happen? Only a couple of weeks ago I was complaining there was ages until September and open season on pumpkin spiced whatevers.

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
