Ultimate Cosy Night In – #Blogtober18

Even in my teens and early 20s I never really enjoyed going on nights out to the pubs and clubs. I’ve always been something of a homebody and I’m happy to continue this way now I’m in my 40s!
I much prefer spending a cosy night in with the super wonderful husband.

Our Ultimate Cosy Night In

There are a few things we need for our cosy night in:

  • Having the house to ourselves for the evening
  • Good food – the super wonderful husband is an excellent cook and always takes the time to present his food nicely. I, on the other hand, stick it all on a plate and hope for the best!
  • Drawn curtains and a log fire – Unfortunately, we don’t have a real log fire, but the fake electric one we have still makes me feel cosy 🙂log fire cosy night in
  • Baileys – I love original Baileys but I won’t say no to a glass of the gorgeous Chocolat Luxe!
  • Dessert – something rich and gooey and chocolatey and caramelly would be my first choice.
  • A Good Movie – the type will depend on how we feel on the night. We both like the same kind of movies so it’s usually easy to decide on something together.
  • My fluffy Christmas blanket that Ant bought me a few years ago. I keep it out all year because it’s too comfy and warm to store away for the majority of the year!
  • Snacks to eat when the movie is on – Reeses Pieces or a Pick n Mix for me, cheese and crackers for the husband 🙂
  • Candles – Candlelight and firelight and second only to Christmas fairy lights for me. I love how they make me feel all comfy and cosy 🙂

    Love cosy nights in and would now choose those over a night out at a club any day, i’m glad to hear someone else keeps their Christmas blanket out all year, I do too.

    Sounds like the perfect cosy night in. I would rather that than go out. We usually get disturbed by one of the kids or the animals being naughty lol #Blogtober18

    I too love a cosy night in – my favourite type of evening! I love candles, the company of Mr Fitz, a good film, TV drama or football game on TV, however we rarely find films we both like! We are so alike I also have a warm fleecy throw and I enjoy a glass of Baileys but only in winter, red wine the rest of the year.

    I love cosy nights in now. For me it’s all about good food and snuggly blankets. A glass of Baileys is just a bonus x
