January is a slow month. Mellow after the festive season. No real agendas. Not feeling like you should really be doing something. The long, dark days can seem endless but I quite enjoy the opportunity to cosy up and take it easy.
This weekend I spent Saturday at The Linen Green with a lovely friend. We set off early in the midst of a dreary fog. The fog was replaced by rain a little later. Not the most pleasant day but a lot of fun none the less. Browsing the last of the sales and enjoying a long chat over lunch. Good for the soul.
And today was a lovely day. We enjoyed a late breakfast, much Lego building, a walk in the woods and a roast chicken dinner. The little ones are now tucked up and I am happily ensconced on the sofa with my feet up, stove lit and content to spend the evening flitting between reading and watching television with Mr F.
Hygge. The Danish word which roughly translates into English as cosiness and perfectly describes my weekend. Maybe hygge explains why the Danes are often described as the happiest people in the world.
