Word Of The Week – Cosy

I usually find January a really tough month, it’s dark and damp outside and Spring seems a long way off. This year I’ve decided that January is going to be a great month and I’m focusing on the positives. I’ve chosen the word cosy as I’ve really enjoyed snuggling up at home this week.Daisy went back to school on Tuesday and at first the thought of the freezing cold school runs filled me with dread. Instead I decided to think about how warm the house would feel on my return. I thought about the streaming hot cup of coffee waiting for me and the fluffy blanket on the sofa.

Changing my thoughts really gave me an extra spring in my step and made that cosiness of home feel even more inviting.

Another place that has become even more cosier than usual this week has been our bed. Over the Christmas break we indulged in a few rare lie-ins. Getting back into our usual morning routine has been so hard. To combat this I’ve been setting the alarm five minutes early so I can really appreciate the cosiness before starting the day.

I’ve also made sure that my softest comfiest jumper has been on hand for the chilly afternoons. In the evenings we have consumed lots of episodes of Gilmore girls whilst we burn some Winter scented candles. I truly have revelled in feeling cosy this week.
