Yesterday was a busy day, up early to make breakfast and get lunch organised and out to church before the rest of the family because I was playing in music group. Actually I really enjoy the walk up to church by myself it gives me time to think and be ready for the service. I knew most of the songs yesterday which made it more fun, it was a good service, I enjoyed the worship and the sermon was okay, it was about purpose and had three main points; in, up and out. This has conjured up a wonderful picture in my head, which I must try to get down on paper some time today.

After church Mum came round for lunch and we had a pleasant relaxed time. Ben came round to see the boys, Ian replaced the lightbulb in the bathroom but now the morning room light isn't working properly something to do with the starter motor which fires up the fluorescent tube, at the moment it flashes on and off like a strobe!!

After tea it was off to church again, another good service. After the service David went off to Life (the Youth Group) and Chris and Matthew went home while we went to Margaret's to finish sorting out her computers. Several cups of coffee later we returned home just in time to go to bed!

Chris and Matthew have gone off to school this morning, though we had to eat breakfast by candlelight because of the morning room light.

And I'm assuming it had nothing to do with, well, you know, procreation *g*

So, no epileptics in the morning room then... you have a morning room? OMG that sounds posh!

No, though that might create a completely different mental picture!*g*

It's not posh it's a very unpretentious room, containing a food cupboard, a fridgefreezer, a table and chairs, a sort of kitchen extension really, very useful indeed!

Your morning room does indeed sound useful. It sounds like our dining room, except that is sandwiched between the living room, kitchen and new sitting room, with a front door and a computer room along one wall!! It's not private, our dining room! No doors to close. And no way to hide the mess from visitors. Like today, with the sewing machine out, my feathers and glue everywhere... oh well, the quote on our piano this weeks says 'a tidy house indicates a wasted life' *g*

We have a dining room as well, but that's usually full of boys and computers, except when visitors are comimg for a meal! You could probably knock down the wall between the morning room and the kitchen and make a super big kitchen, but I quite like the eating area close but seperate from the cooking area, that way I don't have to look at dirty pans while I'm eating my tea!

I hated the design of my house in Stokes Valley, because everyone had to walk through the kitchen to get into the house, it was a complete nightmare, it sounds like your dining room might have similar problems.

'a tidy house indicates a wasted life' I couldn't agree more, but I'm trying to waste a little more of my life than I used to in pursuit of a tidy house, because I hate it when the clutter overwhelms you and you can't function any more!!

Oh yes, that happened in our computer room. Which is not where the computer is! But it had gotten so bad it depressed me on a daily basis, and so many projects were stuffed in there and forgotten... now I am two-thirds of the way to creating a nice room again! And getting some projects finished at the same time. This was a year ago and I'm just getting it done now, OMG!

My mother living so close is a huge incentive to stay organised, because she might pop in any time (and she is such a tidy person!), so I'm trying to contain my projects so that they don't spill over and take over, I have a drawer completely full of paint and paintings, a bag filled with craft materials, a cupboard full of postcards and a big box full of cross stitches etc

It's great when you sort out clutter though, and great when you manage to get things finished too, so well done, keep going, and I'll try to stay organised too!!

Wouldn't that require "up" first? Oh, never mind.

Room names and item names are permanent. We might not have called it that, but that's what Mum called it...so that's its name.
Just like the "orange dresser" still has that name even after it's been painted white. Or the "cat room" still has that name even when the cats have banished from it. And it sounds like your "computer room" suffers the same problem.

Ever hopeful *g*

But you're right about the names of rooms. I need to rename the computer room, maybe the craft room LOL! But I can't see it sticking. Names stay, huh.

Like our Senior Block at school, it used to be the parish hall (probably thirty or forty years ago) and the oldies still say, 'over in the hall'

Re: names are permanent
In SV we had a drawer called the second drawer down, but it wasn't!
