Lagom – Declutter Eight Top Tips challenge, for WhimsyandCosy Group.

Hello, I recently started a group focused on Lagom (balance is the best word to give its ‘vibe’). It’s perfect for all those who love Hygee or those who are simply looking to make life more simple and appreciate the little things as being the big things mentality .

Hygge times from March – enjoy the spring

Here is my Hygge times – well some of them – which happened as March unfolded, as we enter April it is spring showers and bursts of sun, make the most of appreciating every season and try to look for what you love about it.

LACOCK ABBEY

I love trees, and the tree display inside the grounds of Lacock Abbey, in December, are something I look forward to seeing if I am lucky enough to get the chance.

The many trees – placed inside the famous Lacock Abbey Cloisters  – (made famous in part – in recent years- by the filming of ‘Harry Potter’) are designed by different  schools/groups/clubs/organizations/charities for the event.

It’s beautiful and calming, fun to walk around, and a joy to see.  I want to share my wonderful time with you all out there as well.
