So this may be my very last post on wordpress.com. The lovely Suburban Mum, one of my earliest readers, who’s blog I’ve been reading for years (in her various incarnations!), has been helping so much behind the scenes, making everything at the new self-hosted place look wonderful. It looks – well, like a REAL blog. Like everyone else’s blog I read! I am really pleased. She will be getting a big care package. The problem is, I can’t send crappy Canadian chocolate as she lives in the land of real Cadbury.
She’s building me a new home. And it’s fantastic.
Anyway, for potentially my last act here? Help me figure out what the hell to do with this room in my house.
It’s our side entrance, the one we use as a front door. It’s stupidly large. It’s awkward. It leads directly into our eat-in kitchen.
Mark says that when we came for a viewing before we bought it, the room had a desk. He wasn’t sure if it was an office or a play area. Well, we already have an office. Eventually we are going to want to sell this place (soon, please), and we’d like to have the room have a purpose other than a GIANT ROOM TO PUT SHOES & COATS IN. Because that’s silly.
The only thing we can think of is to use it as a playroom. The kids already have lots of places to play but this could be dedicated. The only problem I have with that is that I don’t want them near the dog food.
What say you, wonderful people? Bid this place adieu with your advice.
And I’ll let you know as soon as I’m ready to send you over to the new (internet) home.
