This is a photograph of a modern family at play. Can you see? There are three children, all with something in front of them, heads down, occupied with their own worlds. Get me. I’m the one taking the photo, so my phone isn’t far from my hand, is it? And I think after this picture was taken, I posted to Facebook so I’m really not … Continue reading Hygge is not…. 24/7
Continuing the tour!! Hygge is synonymous with a warm drink. If you look at so many of the Kindle books about hygge that came out, so many of them feature a pair of hands clasped around a warm drink of tea, coffee or (the hygge favourite) cocoa. Indeed, when Meik Wiking’s favourite description of hygge is as “cocoa by candlelight” then you know a hot … Continue reading Hygge is… warm drinks
Having a treat is an important part of hygge. Real life is hard, work does have to be done and if you don’t do it, then who will? But tied up with the hard work has to be the reward. And, yes, I know that reward is intrinsic, pleasure in a job well done and that you can get by without a treat… but … Continue reading Hygge is…. having a treat occasionally

That doesn’t mean that they didn’t have hygge before. There are enough Danish ex-pats and descendants in the North of America to mean that hygge has been there for quite a while now. Today’s blogger … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Kristie of North of 49

It’s a lovely time of year in the Northern hemisphere now… Spring has definitely arrived in the UK, with warm temperatures and blossom everywhere! And Easter is just around the corner, with its promise of eggs and bunnies. I know some schools have already broken up, but my teenagers don’t break for the Easter Holidays until Friday, so this week is the week I’ve begun … Continue reading Spring Hygge is in full bloom!
It’s funny, but it very much goes against my nature to have to sell myself. Part of me is always judging myself… comparing against other people and thinking (for the most part) that they can do whatever it is much better than I can. I’ll never be a top singer, a great dancer, not even a good housewife. But I can sling a sentence together … Continue reading First reviews of the book are in….
