The Simple Things Issue 92 February


Sharing pancakes. How to nap, pause and listen. Why we love a grebe. Chocolate baby cakes. Love wisdom. Art Deco Britain. Vita Sackville West’s odes to dogs. Wintering well. Fair trade chilli & parsnip dahl. Satisfying darning. Modern nomads.
There are two choices when it comes to February. Hibernate, embrace the duvet and wait for spring, or hold it lightly, look about you and find reasons to be cheerful.
This will see you through the darkest of days; flipping a pancake or two is always fun, watching the antics of a dog is guaranteed to make you smile, and the courtship dance of grebes (this month, on a lake near you) is a thing to behold.
On the subject of romance, consult our love oracles, where wisdom comes from surprising sources. Elsewhere, we’re learning to tune in to sounds that energise and uplift us to transform our mood.
Sometimes to thrive we simply need to take a nap or remember to pause – then before we know it, winter will be over and the year ahead rushing to meet us.

Taking time to live well

The Simple Things is published monthly and is all about taking time to live well.

We celebrate slowing down, enjoying what you have, making the most of where you live, enjoying the company of of friends and family, and feeding them well. We like to grow some of our own vegetables, visit local markets, rummage for vintage finds, and decorate our home with the plunder. We love being outdoors and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with a job well done.

And we like to think that the small things we do will make a difference in the long run – whether that’s making, upcycling, growing, cooking, entertaining, escaping or relaxing.
