I've just finished reading Meik Wiking's 'The Little Book of Hygge'... and as a result, I'm overflowing with such a warm, fuzzy, cosy feeling of loveliness!
If you haven't heard of Hygge before, you surely will do soon. It's a Danish word (pronounced Hoo-ga) which has no translation in the English language but is basically the concept of cosiness, warmth, safety, happiness and wellbeing (imagine an autumn evening spent drinking hot chocolate, playing Scrabble with your closest friends and family, next to a toasty open fire, wrapped in a soft blanket, with the soft glow of candlelightt surrounding you).
I love the concept so much, that I am ready to adopt a totally hyggelig lifestyle... immediately!
Soooo, I'm writing this blog with a candle burning beside me and a cosy blanket across my knees.
