We have reclaimed the study and studio by purchasing a little portable tent – otherwise known as the Baby Nation Sleep Easy UV – for Angus to sleep in during the day.
We prop it up on our bed and Angus goes down like a dream in it. It probably took him only once or twice to get used to. He is such a co-operative little man.
Anyway, this has made all the difference to my neck and back, because now I can sit at my work desk in a proper physio-friendly position again.
It’s almost like I have my own office again. (So much for giving it up.)
One thing’s for certain: I cannot wait till we move to a bigger place.
Not that I don’t enjoy living in four rooms. And by four rooms, I’m literally talking about four rooms – not kitchen, living, dining plus four bedrooms. But let’s just say it’s not exactly my ideal living situation. How we even managed to fit into here at the beginning of last year is a true testament to our parents’ generosity and willingness to store our diamonds, tiaras and other precious jewels as well as the ingenious storage solutions offered by IKEA.
Still, I have learnt a lot from this experience, namely that:
1) A living room can turned into a dining room or study. Or bedroom.
2) A kitchen can double (or should I say triple) as a dining room or study.
3) A study can also serve as a bedroom. Sometimes at the same time even (ie. when one falls asleep at the desk).
4) A bedroom can double as a nursery. Even when there actually is no space for the baby. Just pile things on top of one another. Not the baby though.
5) The bottom of a staircase is a great place for books and other similarly important objects. And no, this isn’t dangerous. Not if you’re as agile and co-ordinated as I am anyway.
In fact, I think the only place in our home that hasn’t served some quasi dual purpose has been the bathroom. Though, funnily enough, Rick does like to leave books in there…
