How do you Hygge?

Well as I mentioned in an earlier post, turns out I’ve been embracing Hygge for years without  actually knowing it was a thing!

In a coincidental set of circumstances, I had literally just finished reading an article about Hygge and what it means, when a friends post on Instagram all about Hygge pinged up.

My friend mentioned me, saying “look all the candles and things, this all reminds me of you” I started to read more….

I think the best way to describe the feeling of Hygge for me is that moment when you genuinely feel happy, calm, content. Whether this is with blankets snuggled up on the sofa, relaxing with a good book, cooking, that feeling of satisfaction from achieving your tasks and having time to relax with a glass of wine, or sitting in the park and just being. Whatever it is, find your Hygge and genuinely feel it. Hygge can be found with friends, at dinner or in its most simplistic form, lighting a candle, togetherness.

Have a look at  these two beautful books to help you on your path to finding Hygge!

They are full of beautiful photography and recipes (which I am keen to veganise) and lovely tales of people and how and where they find Hyggelig in their lives and you in yours.

Be happy.

Well, It’s been a while since I posted anything on my little blog.

I’m not sure why ? I have still been cooking like crazy, generally jazzing out in my own bonkers way.

Maybe its the weather? Maybe I just haven’t felt very “bloggy” ?

(Is that even a thing? Can I ask any more questions?)

So here I am, back after a small hiatus (as they like to say in the literary world.)

I initially started this blog thinking it would be just all about food, recipes and adventures in the kitchen as it were.

But I have decided I have so much to ramble on about I might as well just get stuck in and share all the other stuff too.

So, Winter is upon us and whilst I hate being cold, I do love bundling up and feeling all toasty, baking bread and making hearty warming soups.

Wrapping up and going out for a walk in the park and then having a little drinky poo or two in a nice snug pub, and just embracing the Season. We always have a candle or two lit at home and blankets are always ready on each end of the sofa, all throughout the year.

We were Hyygelig all along!
