I don't know about you but I've just about had it up to here with winter.
I'm so ready for daylight and warmth. I've recently started a new job and now I have a longer walk in the early mornings and back in the evenings. I love the fresh air and the winter sunlight but it would be nice if I could feel my fingers at the same time.
But I think I have found a solution.
I came across this link earlier this week looking at cool cultural concepts from around the world, and one of them is "hygge", a Danish concept which as far as I can tell is about braving the weather then holing up somewhere warm and brightly lit with comfort food, warm snuggly woollen clothes and blankets, and good company.
I love the concept. I also love the word and how close it is to 'hug', like the candlelight, hot cocoa and blankets are giving you a hug.
So tonight I'm seeking hygge. I'm curled up on the sofa with a blanket and my knitting with food in the oven. Also in the plans are candles, hot water bottles, chocolate and of course actual hugs.
