Vicariously living Danishly

June 25, 2017

What the world needs now is love, sweet love. We’re in a dark’an’orrible place right now. And personally my solution is books, sweet books.

Like this one: Helen Russell’s The Year of Living Danishly. 

Like the finest Danish pastry, this book is light, enjoyable and morish. But it isn’t empty fluff. This is quality stuff. 

Reflective, philosophical, socially and politically relevant. Entertaining, engaging and inspiring. This book hits the rare sweet spot: fun and funny while being relevant and insightful. This is  the kind of gently uplifting nourishment a lot of us need at the moment.

And as an added bonus for us AFOLs, the book also features the odd insight into what it is like to work for Lego. It sounds pretty wonderful. So Lego, if you’re ever looking for someone to help develop a new line of gender-neutral town and train based sets, I’ve got a lifetime of Lego building experience, an eye for design and Lego-bucketloads of creativity, and I think my little family could build a very happy life in Denmark.
