For my birthday I have been given some lovely cushions. Well actually I got given some money and instead of being sensible I’ve bought cushions that I really really wanted and adore.
Except the trouble is where should they live.
Part of me says that they should go into our bedroom or the nice living room but another part of me says that I really should keep them where I’ll see them every day where they can be admired and enjoyed. But then they will be at risk of the twin terrors and the trail of destruction that comes in their wake… milk, snot, felt tips and worse
And they are lovely and I’d like them to stay being lovely but in order to do that I risk not seeing them much at all.
We have lovely china we were given for our wedding – its beautiful but it doesn’t really get used.
We have a living room which we keep as a child free zone and its lovely – we only use it occasionally but its calming, pleasant, tidy, and not covered in marks or scattered with broken things.
I’m torn – what to do ? Keep it for best, use it and enjoy it?
What would you do ?
