Duvet days are the best things all year round, but especially when the weather starts to get really chilly. There’s honestly not much better than a good old duvet day. Like many people, I get the weekend off, and after a week of 6am starts, 6:30 returns and a daily two hour train commute to work and back, there’s nothing better than treating myself to an egg bap, plonking my arse down on the sofa and not doing much else for the entire day on a Saturday. Who doesn’t love a good Netflix binge with hot drinks, food and wrapping up in a duvet and fluffy socks?
So today’s post: How to create the perfect day:
1| Duvet. Or blankets. Or pillows. Or all 3.
The cosier, the better. Obvs.
2| Hot drinks.
Here’s where I kind of wish I liked chocolate. Maybe. Maybe not. But, I’m pretty sure a hot chocolate with all the marshmallows would be the top dog here. Never mind. I love a good milky cuppa or a hot juice to hug my insides.
3| A good tv show/film to watch.
Of course this one is down to personal preference but I am a big fan of series at the moment. Especially as I am rubbish at binging, forever late to the party and always playing catch up to everyone else. Also, Sundays with the kids are when the Sky Movies come into play.
This could be your favourite series or films, a TV show/movie that you have been wanting to or having been meaning to watch for a while etc. You’re the queen/king of the duvet and the remote. Go wild and get lost in different worlds for the day.
4| Stock up on snacks.
Ok so I may not be the biggest snacker in the world, unless I am having a duvet session with the friends, but snacks are definitely a good side kick for a duvet day.
5| Comfy, slobby, baggy clothes.
This could be anything from comfy PJs, a cosy dressing gown, a onesy, sweat pants, a big hoody etc. Wrap yourself up in your fluffiest blanket or your duvet, throw on your fluffiest socks and well you can’t really get any more snuggled up then that.
6| Get a yourself a cuddle buddy.
Whether that’s getting your bestie over, or you fancy a cuddle session with your other half. Having a lazy day companion makes a great day, even greater. Of course, hanging out on your Larry is also fun. I enjoy chilling out with my nephew with hot drinks if he ends up hanging out at our house. Of course if you don’t want company, that’s cool too. You can dedicate the day to yourself and spend some time looking after you. Find your favourite book, cosy up and get lost in different worlds for a few hours or so.
Like I mention at the start of this blog, duvet days are a perfect all year round activity, but how amazing are those duvet days where the wind is howling outside and the rain is lashing down hard against the window? There is no better feeling then curling up on the sofa with a hot drink and no where to be.
Basically duvet days are the best. They don’t have to cost you anything and you don’t even have to leave your house. Yes they are lazy, in fact, very lazy. But, there’s no shame in that. You’re human, you need a lazy day every now and again.
So that’s my perfect lazy duvet day. How would you create your perfect lazy day?
Until next time.
Love, hugs and pugs.
