On a wonderful day like today

* sings* I defy any cloud to appear in the sky Dare any raindrop to plop in my eye....

Okay mad moment over.

Walking to school today I had a thought. Yes I know that thinking isn't usually alex's strong point, but walking to school brings out all sorts of blog worthy thoughts and normally by the time I get to computer I forget them all. Anyway back to blog worthy thoughts.

Never have I been more aware that an Englishman's home is his castle. As I walk to school, I walk past a terrace of former council houses that the occupiers have bought. They are all basically the same house, yet each has been personalised beyond belief. There is a house that's been painted peach, another with christmas lights on already. Some have perfect manicured lawns, arty wooden blinds, and disgner twigs in the windows. Some have fluffy net curtains, garden overflowing with colour and twee little plastic animals pinned to the walls.

This got me think as to what my house will be like when I marry Rob. Our tastes can be quite different. I love the ikea look, but with lots of interesting bits and bobs..Rob's not into clutter. That may be a source of fun...me cluttering and him putting away...lol

I'd love a futon in the sparre room so we could pull it out and lounge on it on rainy days in and this one is only£99 And then we could have friends to stay.

I'd also love a big soft fluffy sofa for curling up on and watching dvd's. This one is £245
