|This is 20 feet from our front door! Becca put a stick in the ground to mark the water level - but by the time we came back an hour later it had been washed away by the speeding water!|
|It's really rather pretty!|
|Home sweet teeny tiny home, for the next 2 weeks!|
We have emptied the bathroom cabinets of their stuff so that we can put our stuff in there, because otherwise we'd be carrying our shower gel to the bathroom every day, which seems silly - but then we had the problem of where to put the displaced stuff, so it's been shoe-horned into a book case in the sitting room, which is doubling as my bedroom because the 'double room with loft' turned out to be the worlds smallest double bed with a twin mattress crammed onto a shelf above the staircase! Rebecca LOVES little spaces, secret nests, corners, fun little places, but this was just NOT going to work - she is over 5 feet tall, for a start - she wouldn't even be able to sit up up there, and there's no room for her books, either, which is a disaster in itself! So she has one bedroom, Caity has the other, and I am sleeping down here, on an IKEA pull out which seems quite comfy.
Every shelf in the place is stuffed with books, cd's, dvds and videos. There is nowhere to put our own books, and even the dresser drawers are filled with Other People's Things! It's very odd, and not terribly welcoming, although others who have stayed here have thought it marvellous that they didn't need to bring their own shower gel because Somebody Else's shower gel was in the shower ready and waiting for them - yick!
But we've made a little space for ourselves and our things, and we've covered up the stained couch with a huge IKEA comforter and now it's much more welcoming, and we went for a walk and found...
|...a place for Becca to sit and read.|
|that the tide comes in really quite fast - this was passable when we left and only climbable when we returned less than an hour later!|
|and that there are really rather a LOT of things to climb on around here!|
Sweet dreams, I wish you could hear the water lapping on the pebbles, it's very restful x
P.S. I miss Connie - there is no Aga in the kitchen here!
