The Eye of the Storm (and Other Equally as Melodramatic Ways to Describe Mum’s Garden)
These are my top 5 favourite places to be…
5. Trains in general
4. My bed
3. Nick and Amy’s front bedroom
2. the window seat in my local Starbucks
1. Mum’s garden
Trains for the same reason as Starbucks.
My bed because it’s cosy and surrounded by all my stuff. It’s where the magic happens!
Nick and Amy’s front bedroom because it’s a great place to catch the last bit of sun while the retarded conversations started in the garden gain momentum. It’s full of friends, alcohol and sunshine.
And the window seat in Starbucks because I’m usually alone and have the chance to mull things over while people-watching and perving.
My Mum’s garden is the undisputed, hands-down winner because it’s where I escape to when things get too much. I haunt the other places on the list but Mum’s garden is a sanctuary. I go there to recharge whenever I need to get out of Dodge.
This is what’s in my head when I’m not there…
This is what’s in my head when I am…
Where’s the shade? Shall we have another cup of tea?
