Word of the Week 21st March 2014 - SPACE

How on earth are we already in March? It feels like only last week that we were celebrating the start of the new year, desperate to move from the flat that we had started to outgrow.

We've at last come down a gear or two from the beginning of the month and we are now finally being able to enjoy the space we have moved into, although I think it may take some time before we get used to having room to swing not just a cat, but a whole pride of lions.

While we were sitting in front of the TV watching Line of Duty this week it struck me that despite having a beautiful dining table and six chairs to use, we still pull up a little side table to eat dinner on the sofa. This sofa by the way is a new one, it has a bigger three seater sofa sibling in the same room. We never use the big sofa, preferring instead to sit slightly squished together on the smaller one.

It seems despite having room to be separate, we're so used to living in one space and we're finding ourselves clinging onto the old ways...just knowing there's a whole sofa and a whole conservatory waiting for us is enough right now, we don't need to use them! 

Over the next few months we have family staying with us, Easter egg hunts to organise and lunches to host. Our space will become shared and I'm sure at times it will seem almost too small - until then we'll remain on our two seater, eating our dinner on our laps just enjoying our space!
