Things I love about winter: hygge!
A bit like parenthood, however, it wasn't a concept I really grasped until I experienced it for myself. As the days are now reduced to a bare minimum of daylight hours and the darkness descends at 4 pm, its the most natural thing to want to do to go home and light candles and if you have your family and friends around you to share the warmth, its a bonus. So after a cold bike ride home and triumphant in the battle against the elements, I have now introduced my children to the idea of 'cosy time' where we curl up on the couch under a warm blanket and read stories together. Hyggelit, indeed!
