    Dear Everyone on/ff of here,

    Finally, I’m getting on this moment.  Even through I’m kinda late.  It wasn’t the one that I thought it was, but on the hand theres quite out there to begin with.  The end that I went with is far better then all of the others.  Well pretty much because its mainly a beginners guide with a lots of recipes for both food and drink.  But still in the end would love to see more to it.  Like for the bathroom mainly.  At least in my eyes of course.

    Heres even more info to it.

    Nordic countries are consistently rated as the best places to live for quality of life, happiness and education, literacy and gender equality. But what’s their secret? In How To Hygge, renowned Scandinavian cook and writer Signe Johansen explores the culture of hygge, shares the secrets of Nordic living and shows you how to adopt these elements into your everyday life, wherever you are in the world.

    Hygge is central to the Nordic sense of well-being. Roughly translated as ‘cosiness’, it implies warmth, conviviality and community. With fifty recipes and glorious imagery, Johansen explains how to enjoy the outdoors the Nordic way, the joy of fika (coming together over cake and coffee), how to collaborate to achieve a sense of community and why alcohol is integral to the healthy hedonism of hygge. For those who have long admired the region’s stylish design heritage, she reveals how to achieve Scandi-Cool in your own home, without breaking the bank.

    Explore the culture of hygge, and learn how to live your life to the fullest, Nordic-style.

    In all its going to help me continue toward down this path.  Now also wish that all of the majority of others would at least look into it.  I mean just look thats its mainly for the minority of us.

    Think thats it for now.

    Thank you, again, in advance.

    Yours truly,


    It looks interesting, although on first look it may be preaching to the converted to some extent. I grew up in a small village with a close knit family group so have happy memories of those times. Today I live in a fairly close knit community, which for many is somewhat ‘busier’ than in the past, but when I compare to city life there is no real comparison.

    I find it interesting to think of many peoples in the world, and that with all, the happiest way seems to be with community and mutual respect. There has recently been a series of programs on Japan on the BBC. I like that the values there are very similar, particularly with the older people, even though their culture is theroretically very different.


    There’s been quite a bit about this in the UK recently and it’s very interesting. I think it’s Norway that is the most expensive country in Europe yet they are the happiest.
