My favourite Aussie scrapperblogger, Amy, set a new challenge this week. She asked this question: What five things won’t be in your home in five years’ time?
In at #1: the front flower bed. If it still looks like this in 5 years, I’m leaving home. It’s been like this since last November and although DH is beginning to make an in-road into the concrete-like soil, there’s still a way to go.
#3: the IKEA armchair. This chair has been in our house for all the time I have known DH. There used to be a sofa that went with it, but that has long gone to the PDSA, where the poorly animals won’t mind that some of the springs have sprung. It was in DS’s room for a long time, but I felt it was taking up too much room and moved it onto the landing. The idea was to freecycle it or donate it to charity. DH, however, has other ideas. It’s to go in to his loft office. Thing is, it can’t go until DH has cleared out all the
junk stuff he has up there already, as there isn’t the room …
#4: the wallpaper in our bedroom. Thankfully, I don’t notice it anymore. It was up when DH bought the house in 1997 and it is my belief that it has been up since 1991 when our house was built. I really don’t like it.
#5: the gate at the bottom of the loft stairs. No longer for any child safety aspect, but still in situ to allow DH to work without interruptions from DS. DH works from home a lot and DS still believes that when men go upstairs they are going to work.
So there you have it. A wee snapshot of the ordinaryness of what’s in my home in 2011.
