Sleep In

It was more of a doze in really, but the fact that I didn't get out of bed until 07:20 this morning is probably a good sign.

I don't think it was encouraged by a need to stay warm. The temperature in Sheffield is still reasonably high and though the heating hasn't been put on here yet there probably isn't much need for it. There's a general sense that the base temperature is dropping slightly, but essentially it is warm enough. My room tends to have the PC on much of the time that  I am in, so the fan chucks out some heat in what is probably the warmest room in the house anyway. Dave's books, which are shelved along the biggest outside facing wall, provide a fantastic insulating layer!

It strikes me that I won't be at Dave's haven for very much longer. Most of the bedding for the cottage is now sorted thanks to an extra few clicks to Sal's Asda order. The fact that the current tenant has generously donated her sofa and king size mattress and bedding has made everything much easier on move day. I have the Ikea trip with Erin on Sunday morning to hoover up a whole host of loose ends. I could really do with getting a range of basics including: pans, tin opener, oven gloves (look you never know), tea towel, washing up bowl, drainer, oven tray, nice lighting, iron, ironing board, chest of drawers. Being a boy I have sorted out television and broadband already, though the television is there largely to ensure my children will consider visiting me.

Actually, I say that about the television, but you never know. My life may be more solitary, at least for a while, or at least marked with times of solitude. Mondays, Wednesdays, and alternate Friday nights and weekends will be my own. Yawning gaps of time that I am used to sharing with someone. Perhaps I will get a liking for television? Eek I hope not! Also determined not to waste that time browsing the Internet either. A car, some boots and a rucksack should get me out and about. Bike rides remain a danger.

Indeed. Of course I'd need to find room for a table first! RPGs for a group of 4 would work really well.

Very kind. It's all about space. Downstairs there is one small front room next to the kitchen. A 'big house' size table may just not be viable. Await the pictures..! :)

Hold on to that commitment about the internet!

Last time I was in Ikea I seem to remember spotting a rather nice fold-away table, with four fold-away chairs. I remember thinking at the time that it looked like a really good solution to a problem we didn't have.
This might have been it, I'm not sure
