Today the Amy rave flu finally caught up with me and i spent the day in bed in my new and improved bedroom. Liam has moved out to a houseshare in kensal rise and that means…….. I HAVE MY OWN ROOM!!!!! WOWOWOWOWWOOOOOO!
Liam has moved out before, but only for a year and as we knew he was coming back all of Ellas stuff stayed in our room, so it didn’t feel like i had my own room or my own space. But this time Liam took all his stuff with him and ella is periodically moving her shiz into his old room. This means that now for one of the first times in my life i have somewhere in my house where i can get away from my family, be it to relax, sleep, have a tantrum or to nurse a hangover. I love my family but living in a two bedroom hose with 5 people has always meant that wherever you are in the house, you weren’t alone, i mean from my room you can look down the hall and see into the living room. Whenever me and any other member of the family had a fight which is quite often due to the close quarters, i could never go into my room and sulk because my sister would be in there or liam would be, there was never any sense of privacy.
Even though now i am happy to have my own room, i am grateful to have had this small flat and the old setup, because without it, there is no way that my family would be as close as it is now. We have dinner together every day, whenever we want to watch tv we had to do it together as the living room doubles up as my mum and dads room, so we are constantly in contact with each other in the house, this does lead to countless fights but in my opinion it has also led to a closeness and understanding of eachother that we wouldn’t have had if we didn’t live in this setup. I have friends who have said that sometimes they can go for days without seeing another member of their family in their house which could never happen to us because the whole flat is visible from most parts of it.
ok so i know that i have neglected the blogging malarkey because i am a lazy bum but im gonna try to keep up with it now.
Current obsession: Breaking bad < sick tv program about this guy (played by malcom in the middles dad) who finds out that he has terminal lung cancer and decides that hes gonna use his skills as a chemistry teacher to start a meth lab. i have only watched a few episodes but already i can tell that im gonna become addicted.
