Word of the Week: Cosy

This week it's been all about keeping warm and cosy for me and the girls. I've lost count of the amount of cups of tea I've consumed and the heating has been well and truly on. I've got some fluffy blankets out around the home and hyge has been the order of the week. 

Word of the Week: Cosy


On Thursday we all headed to Newbury and had a look in TK Maxx before heading into the centre. Since seeing fake tulips in the store near us I have been hoping to track them down and buy some. Alas I've strugled to find any and they aren't featured online either. I guess that will teach me for not snapping them up as soon as I saw them. There are also some other gorgeous pieces especially the Easter decor. Hoever, with much of the decor being breakable I've resisted knowing that my little girls would probably take a liking to them too.

Random Acts of Kindness


Word of the Week: Cosy

So we headed into the town and had a little look around the charity shops. It's always interesting what treasures you may come across in these little places. The Whittards tea set above came from one such shop along time ago. Alas a couple of these were closed due to staff shortages. So we went for tea in a lovely little cafe and bought some pipe cleaners for an upcoming project before going to the park. The walk back to the park took less longer than the walk into town and along the way eldest and I spotted this lovely little scarf. This was one of many pieces of clothing being left out to keep people
warm. When we reached the park the girls decided it was just too cold for them to play on anyhing so they got into the car where they fell asleep.

Weather Watching


Word of the Week: Cosy

This brings us to today where the girls and I have been staying indoors and looking out of the window. The girls have both been streaming with cold recently not helped by a walk near the river Thames over the weekend with the cold winds blowing so we've not been out to build a snowman.

I hope you are keeping warm wherever you are x

  11. It sounds like you have had a lovely week. That teapot is gorgeous.
    I read earlier in the week about people leaving scarves, hats and gloves for others to use. It's so kind.

  15. no problem keeping warm here as it is 30 degrees, it has been more about finding lovely shady spots. When we visited Tasmania there was a lovely town where people could knit or crochet hats and scarves for pole to take if they were cold, it is just so thoughtful. Keep cosy xx #thesatsesh

  16. I love the word of the week being 'cosy', and we've been doing a fair bit of weather watching ourselves. The comments on your tea consumption I can totally relate to, I said to my husband yesterday - 'I don't think I've ever drunk so many hot drinks in my life' - and that's coming from a big tea drinker. Haha. A lovely week ahead to you & your family. #WotW

  18. I love looking around charity shops too - you just never know what you might find! And I love the idea of leaving out warm clothes for people - I've not heard of that before. #blogcrush

  19. #thesatsesh love this, I saw a pebble today that was decorated and has a postcode on it, i think the idea is it makes you smile and then you move the pebble to somewhere else to see where it can get to and to pass the love ;0 The scarf idea is also a lovely idea and I plan to hang some with my little dude this Autumn.
