Time for Hygge

The Danish have a word for bringing that warm fuzzy feeling into your life, hygge ( pronounced hooga).  I find hygge particularly appropriate during the long dark winter nights.

I didn’t realise there was a word for this but I have been doing it as far back as I can remember, actually I try to enjoy the little things in life every day , but once the clocks go back I make more of an effort to make my evenings cosy and comforting.

I love my crochet blankets, they are so cosy on a chilly evening, even just looking at them makes me happy, and while you are making them they keep you warm as they grow.

P1380320I love winter fruits like these pomegranate jewels, or the perfume when peeling a satsuma. I love fruit salad in the winter months, it seems to perk up a dull day no end.

Walks through trees at this time of year ,  walking through rustling leaves always makes me smile.

So what’s on your hygge list? I’d love to know.
