Today I'm in a spa. I have forgotten my towel and they don't give them out. I'm not going to pay any silly prices for a towel I won't want after today so I am sitting in the cafe waiting for Tim to have his massage(!!) so we can go! Why are you telling us this you ask, well, says I, it's a bit of a tenuous link but I want my forever house to be really welcoming. I don't want our visitors to be sat in the cafe with no towel, metaphorically speaking obviously. I like to be a good hostess and I would want this to be a fundamental part of where we eventually live.
I was thinking about our blog and the lack of activity for a whole month, I thought this was a bad thing and that people must have got bored and the momentum had run out already. What I have now come to think is that it's ok. If the forever house is ever going to happen or work well people need to have been considering it for a while, but it does not need to be top of their 'things to do right now list'. So the blog has not failed, far from it, it's a space where people can come back to, add to even, when something occurs to them or they realise something important that they want or need in 'their' forever house. So there you go, that's something that occurred to me.
