What’s your definition of ‘homely’?

    I wonder if the "cosy" definition is more used now because of the trendy "hygge" thing?

    Open fire or wood burner,; cosy, comfy, sink-into armchairs; soft rugs and soft lamplight. Lots of texture.

    I like lots of books around me too.

    My predictive text changed that to ‘I like lots of boobs around me too.’ :D:D:D

    As if any of us need the danes to teach us how to be cosy. Nothing short of smygge.

    Well I'm quite sure that you didn't intend us to think of your cat as unfortunate looking...so I think we got the gist!

    I know the Americans use it as pleasant but ugly.

    For me it's comfy. Not sumptuous. Comfy and cosy but no ostentation.
