A Word for the Weekend: Rove

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.

Oh, Autumn: Autumn and Fall hygge

Is anybody else desperately waiting for Autumn like I am?

It’s much harder with a weekend in a Travelodge in London on a strict … Continue reading When in London, you take your hygge where you can get it.

A Weekend With…. Natasha Phoenix

That has to be one of the coolest names ever! And even more appropriate if you consider that Natasha is a sculptor and ceramicist, so her work literally does go into the fire to be transformed into something beautiful! In the Hygge Nook, we have a shed load of creative people. Some create for joy, others do it as their jobs. One thing’s for sure, … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Natasha Phoenix
