Hygge

The hot topic at the moment seems hygge I’ve had books about how to hygge and I’ve had a hygge knitting book – my family must be trying to tell me something. Anyway I’ve knitted a hygge face cloth ……… no not feeling it yet 
All that colour changing and all those ends to weave in, but I do like it now it’s done but I’m not knitting any more for a while. I’ve sat in my garden with my hygge tea and enjoyed the fresh air……..I’m feeling it more now.

My research led me to a magazine The Simple Life, nice pictures, nice paper and yes sort of hygge and confirmed my new Japanese apron is considered hygge. Getting there I think.

Last night I found my real hygge, how can I have missed the joy of Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee, what a beautiful book it transports me to a more simple time where pleasure is sharing food, family and countryside. No technology, no TV and being at one with the seasons. From a hygge sceptic to a convert. Go on try hygge if I can anyone can.

If only blogging was more hygge apologies the picture is so big.
