What with the advent of life and the saga of moving house I haven’t been around online much at all for what feels like forever.

The house needed a lot of love and we decided to decorate before unpacking because otherwise the chances were the decorating wouldn’t happen. We’re still a way off from getting the house just how we want it but the first phase of painting is done, new carpets are in, we have internet, TV and a phone line. And most importantly we can sit down*.

Also I now have a room of my own. It’s been variously referred to as my office or my snug but the name that seems to have stuck is Man-cave.

Behold the Man-cave!

Behold the Man-cave!

It makes me happy. In the last house I did all my work in the front room which was fine until the Bean came home or Em wanted to take a break**.

Such trifles are fading memories now I have a Man-cave. And I have to say I love it! I loved painting it. I love hunting for the right picture*** for it and I love writing in here. I’m in here right now, typing this. I have a goofy smile on my face.

*I’d never realised how important it is to be able to sit down in your own house before.

**A very rare occurence.

  1. Yay! Man-caves (or their ilk) are great things to have – may you create many fab adventures of derring-do in there 🙂

  2. Like the place to sit down, everybody in a household should have room that offers the possibility to retreat. Having enough space in a flat or house to make that happen: priceless. Enjoy your new home – and your man cave!
