A holiday cottage life

A day at our little cottage does make some things clear.

  • This house is a lot smaller than our own home and all is on one floor. Really it is all the space we need and as we have a spare room even a bit more than that.
  • The kitchen is tiny and only one can work in there at a time, but it is well laid out and we have all the tools we really need. Just
  • We don’t have anything outside of the basics, so no fancy cooking here and thank heavens for pre-seasoned food we would not buy at home
  • We love our bath. Several times now we came home wanting to take a bath and could not.
  • iPads are handy, just not for typing a blog etc, so we are glad we took our little netbook
  • The silence outside is such that we sleep really really well at night. Utterly amazing
  • Looking outside is like looking straight into a picture postcard. Bit freaky at times I have to admit.
  • As lovely as it is, as it is a home it also makes it harder to feel you are away from a home, because you have one.
  • Even with a different house routines stay the same. For instance our table remains or main depository of everything and coffee is made first thing.
  • The couch is really to small to cuddle up together, hmm that is really one annoying thing.
  • Doing nothing is really quite a good way to spend a day – and nothing consists of reading, twitter, the internet and cooking.
  • We love the privacy! No neighbours and houses around us well are not very near.

    The quiet and solitude sound like the best things to me. It’s not too bad where I live, but it’s never really completely quiet.
