CUSHIONS, CUSHIONS AND MORE CUSHIONS TO CREATE A HYGGE ROOM…

IMAGES OF A HYGGE LIFESTYLE...

I love knitting and usually have something on the go and with knitted throws and cushions in fashion, it’s easy to knock something up to create warmth in your Hygge room.

I have a lovely book which has some lovely patterns for your home called ‘Simple knits for easy living’, by Erika Knight (see above, available from Amazon) which has superb pictures to inspire you and easy to follow patterns.

There is a brilliant website called Cushions and More, which has patterns and details on every type of cushion you could ever think of, from pincushions to floor cushions. Some of my favourite ones at the moment are –

BEING BRITISH QUOTE…

They say that being British is about tolerance, decency and the determination to talk about the weather on all occasions as well as a tendency, when a stranger stands on one’s foot, to apologise

BREW MONDAY 2020…

Brew Monday 2020 is run by the Samaritans.

When it’s cold and grey outside, getting people together to connect over a warming cuppa and a good conversation helps to make us feel better and manage the ups and downs of life.

Have a Brew Monday any Monday this January or February, or a day that’s good for you.

And by using your get-together to raise money for Samaritans, you’ll help give people having a tough time somewhere to turn when they need to talk.

Kick start the New Year with a morale boosting workplace get together. Having a Brew Monday helps pick people up, let’s colleagues get to know each other, and is a lovely way for employers to show they care about wellbeing.

Keep it small or make it big. A Brew Monday is a good excuse to invite over neighbours, or parents after the morning school run. Or just to get friends together you haven’t seen for a while, for a really good chat.

At school. At the gym or the rugby club. In the village hall or the church. Introduce people to each other, make new friends, feel your community enjoying itself. On a Monday, or another day. Whatever works.

It costs just £5 for Samaritans to be able to answer a call for help from someone struggling to cope with big, difficult feelings, who may feel so alone.

A donation to Samaritans for a lovely cuppa and a piece of cake – or two – can bring warmth to someone at the toughest time of their life.

It can even save their life.

Imagine what a Brew could do.

THERE’S AN ART TO BUTTERING CRUMPETS…

The Village Kitchen...

Did you know there is an art to buttering crumpets.

All crumpets should be toasted on both sides, the smooth side first, the holey side last, as this produces a suitable concavity for the butter…Never cut a muffin, snip round the curved side and pull top and bottom apart and insert the butter in thin slices, do not attempt to spread it.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake — Whiskey & Tea

Growing up I never particularly liked the traditional pineapple upside down cake my mom make. Then when I was a teenager she switched to this recipe, which uses crushed pineapple as opposed to the typical sliced pineapple rings. The texture is much more appealing to me — and the cup of brown sugar you mix […]
