Posts on this week’s topic may well give an insight to the ways people live, or how they perceive their homes as an extension of themselves perhaps.
For today’s prompt, we are to take a photo of an area inside of our living space and relate that area to some aspect of our inner self (full details below)
Having lived on a boat for three years, whilst we had intended to downsize, we hadn’t anticipated downsizing to live in a thimble! Once we got used to it though, cramping of one’s style was never an issue as we had everything we needed aboard and it was an opportunity to get rid of the clutter we had hoarded over twenty something years together.
Moving back into a house though we had space to fill, and once the important things (like a new boiler, bed and furniture!) were taken care of, Hubby insisted we splash out.

Welcome to my domain.
It has everything I need, a chair, my jumper, that all important cup of tea, my mobile phone, handbag, laptop, stool, and Maggie curled up on her cushion.
Oh, and that big black thing. Now that is an important part of my life again.
Unlike the purchase of my upright piano taking the entire house decorating budget in 1998, this one is a modest digital instrument.
Having been without a keyboard since 2013, it’s nice to have one again.
The old favourites sound the same, bum notes and all, and I can express myself as I used to. Music has always been my safety valve.
This baby has headphones like my Clavinova 7 did (another Yamaha keyboard I owned 1984 to 1995) and a volume control so I can have it as loud, or as soft, as I wish and no-one will hear me. Yay!!
