Yesterday was busy with playdates, a trip to the fruit shop and lots of work. When Steve came home I took a few business calls, set about making dinner and planned on a relaxing night in front of the laptop. Steve, unfortunately, had other ideas. After dinner, at 7pm he said “How would you feel if the TV was over here instead of over there? I think we should move the room around.” I let out a deep sigh knowing full well that this wouldn’t just be a topic of conversation or something to ponder, he was ready to act on it… now.
We go through this every six months or so, the urge catches one of us by surprise and the other one is along for the ride until the itch is scratched. It’s our idea of a sea change. I think this shuffle was bought on by the big ugly brown couch being thrown to the curb. The retro purple couch from my office has taken it’s place for the time being and because it’s so slim and doesn’t take up so much space it meant we could do more with the layout.
Steve, Aidan and I all worked together on it until 8pm and then they left me to do the rest whilst they did the shower and bed routine, not exactly how I saw myself spending the evening. This morning when I woke up and stomped down the hallway at some ungodly hour, I admit it was rather refreshing seeing the room so different. I think it works really well, Aidan loves the extra space to run around and best of all Steve is happy… well for the next six months anyway.
