This week I am joining in again with Pip's meme, and the theme queen is Femme de Montmartre who asks - "what is it you see when you enter your home? And how do you feel?"
Well, I must tell you, I just absolutely LOVE coming home. Not because our home is perfectly finished. Ha ha ha ha (manic laughing!!!!)
But because it's where I feel warm, and happy and relaxed. At this time of the year, when it's almost dark after the school run, it's wonderful to come back to our cosy home and shut the door against the dark, damp evenings.
Our hall is long and when we first came to view the house before we bought it, there was a motorbike parked in it! Living at that time in a smallish house with 4 growing children, space was what we craved. And space is one of the best things about our house now. It may not be finished (oh no!!) but our hall IS done!
It took a long time, we lived with bare floorboards and splinters on the stairs for months cos we couldn't decide whether to stain them or put carpet down. I am really glad we finally went for carpet as it is so warm and sunny even on a cloudy day! And that's what I feel every time I come home - happy to be back, cosy and warm, and ready to put the kettle on..........x
