Sausages and Sauerkraut

We kicked off last Friday night in style...homely, comforting, unembellished style. It was nothing fancy. There was wine and olive bread, sausages and sauerkraut. And family.

Not having to be 'switched on' can be nice, especially on a Friday night. The closest of family and friends appreciate this without anything needing to be articulated. You can come together without any particular expectations or aspirations, and you can all just be.

You'll eat, drink and unwind, breath in the brave, biting Autumn air and greet the weekend feeling wholly present and relaxed.

Sometimes nights like that are just what you need.

Wouldn't it be grand if every Friday night could be this stylish? This nourishing and unfussed, while fostering feelings of utter contentment and joy at the thought of the weekend ahead? Sausages and sauerkraut are optional, of course.

So tell me, do you have a beloved ritual to ease you gleefully and gently (or maybe not so gently) into the weekend? I know it's only Wednesday, but won't you indulge me a little?
