The lads are coming round, the beers are chilling in the fridge, the burgers are sizzling on the grill. The match kicks off at 8pm, it looks like it’s going to be a great match, and the best seat in the house has your name on it. Then, after the full-time whistle blows, the real big game can begin - the cards are shuffled, and you’ve been practicing your poker face all week. It’s your turn to host the weekly get together of the fellas, the night when the banter flows as smoothly as the beer, and you laugh so hard – your ribs ache the next day!
Scandi is very much in. Whether we are talking about country style Gustavian interiors from Sweden, the Scandinavian mid century classic designs of the Modernist movement or the Danish passion for Hygge, we can't seem to get enough of it.
From Copenhagen-based textiles brand Tekla, who just launched a collection of flannel pyjamas – which look so comfortable, snug and warm – they positively ooze ‘cosy night in’.
To Danish food writer, Trine Hahnemann, who is in demand for her Scandi recipes - the image of Scandi carrot soup that illustrated her recent piece for The Times makes your mouth water just to look at it, such a vibrant colour, it warms you up inside without even needing to take a spoonful.

An Arctic Cabins BBQ Hut - Your Perfect Escape Whatever The Weather
It’s a warm summer evening, the sound of lawnmowers is in the air. The sun is hours away from setting, it’s teatime, and the smell of your neighbours’ cut grass is slowly being replaced by the aromas coming out of your barbecue. What nicer way to spend evenings like this than with your family, in the garden? A cool glass of something refreshing in one hand and your barbecue tongs in the other – those sausages won’t turn themselves. Of course, that’s in the summer.
In one of the videos we made to promote Arctic Cabins’ wonderful BBQ huts, we see a family having a lovely holiday, spending quality time together and we close with the line following line:
“Why not bring those holidays home with you. Arctic Cabins. The Perfect Escape. At Home.”
The Perfect Escape...To A Vegan Diet
One of the many pleasures of an Arctic Cabins™ BBQ hut is the fabulous central BBQ which means that you can deliver perfectly grilled burgers even when the Great British summer is not delivering BBQ weather!
Our Arctic Cabins customers tell us time and time again that, in this ever-expanding universe of choice, there is only one choice.
Spoiler alert - it’s us.
Drive past most garden centres or DIY superstores these days and you'll probably see a variety of timber garden buildings for sale. Certainly the choice has increased in the 17 years since we launched Arctic Cabins.
Watching The Apprentice (BBC1, Wednesday 13/11/19) I had to stop myself from screaming "BBQ huts" at the TV!
This week, the two teams were tasked with creating an advertising campaign to promote Finland as a summer holiday destination.
I'm Finnish, you see. I shared Lord Sugar's disappointment!
