In 6 days my life is about change forever. I’m leaving my home of 27 years to set up a new home with my boyfriend. Most of my belongings are packed into boxes. I can’t believe how many clothes I have; 5 bags and there is still a big pile to sort out! Over the past 3 months I have been in and out of home ware stores, noting prices, getting excited about bargains on cleaning products and trying but not finding a dinner set that looks remotely interesting. I know....why does a plate have to be interesting? Well it doesn’t but I do think a design should say something, something a bit more interesting than “I’m a plate”.
I’ve only seen one design that gets my juices going (as it were).
I am very keen to set up our home, plan the layout, shop for items etc. I would love for the atmosphere to be inspiring yet relaxing – well hey I’ll just say it... a new age/hippie kind of vibe. In fact I have been wanting to set up a “new age/hippie” style home for some years now but this is the first opportunity I’ve had. My room at the moment is what my Mum calls a real “me” type of room but I have never felt that I could go completely wild with it.
Whatever it turns out like my boy friend and I are 100% agreed on the fact that there will be lots of books, book shelves and books on them! Douglas Adams taking pride of place along side my boy friend’s Terry Pratchett (I’ve try to read these with no luck so far, sorry I fail spectacularly). Then of course there are all 7 Harry Potter books, the Anne Rice (although some what unread on my part for some years now), my Robert Harris (a very grown up series of books – surely I’m too young to be reading this kind of thing?) and lots more.
Then there’s the DVD collection: well done HMV for reducing the price of the season box sets of Next Generation and Buffy and Fraiser and.... Good God what geek lives here? But the truth is yes hopefully our home will be just that; a “geeky, new age/hippie sort of house.
