This is one of the most temperamental winters I can remember having in a long time. Snow storms, to feels like -25 celsius to rain and green grass. It is no wonder that the kids have colds we can’t beat, and our moods are gloomy.
If you heaven’t heard of Hygge yet, you are in for a treat! It is a Danish word (pronounced hue-gah) is a feeling or mood that comes from taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary everyday things simply extraordinary; whether it’s making coffee a verb by lingering over a cup to a cosy evening in with friends to lighting a candle with every meal.
