As we head further into autumn and winter, I am eagerly embracing the Danish concept of hygge with both hands. Here in the UK we are currently being flooded with books and articles educating us about hygge, which can best be described as a lovely cosy sense of togetherness with people that we feel very safe and comfortable with. It is generally an indoors thing and tends to involve soft lighting, candles, blankets, open fires, comforting food, warm drinks and can be centred around activities such as chatting with family or friends, reading, watching TV, board games, crafting, and so on.
Some people are very cynical about the current obsession with hygge, but I think it is wonderful. Life has been a little stressful lately and a bit of cosy togetherness has been much welcomed here in the Dollhouse.
Here is where we are up to.
