For Show and Tell today I am showing you what my guest bedroom now looks like.
It's not too bad is it, but it is a great difference from how it used to look. Before Matt arrived it had a double bed, a bookcase, a bedside table...and that's about it. There was hardly any storage in it although I should mention that there was indeed a lot of junk underneath the double bed.
I do actually find it slightly odd to walk up the stairs and catch sight of this room full of Matt's stuff, none of which has anything to do with me. The furniture might be mine, but the contents are all Matt's (except for the pictures on the wall) and it is peculiar to me especially when just a few days ago everything in the house was mine.
However, it looks as though Matt may not be staying as long as previously thought. No, we haven't fallen out or decided that we simply cannot live with each other. What's happened is that the move here has clarified a few things in Matt's mind and he now realises where he would rather live and if it takes him longer to save up for his next goal (going to Australia) then so be it. (because he would have to pay rent in his preferred town)
Of course, it is a bit annoying that having made room for him, he no longer wants it!! But that's not the point, the point is that he needs to be happy wherever he lives and if that is not here then I would rather he went somewhere else than be miserable here. I should, of course, point out that this is not a reflection on me!!! ha ha
Instead, it is the fact that he has a social circle elsewhere, he doesn't know the area around here, and so it would be easier to find a job in a place that he does know and can spend time with his friends whilst doing so.
In the meantime though, I am happy to have his company for now and will enjoy that for as long as it lasts.
P.S. if you look close enough at the second photograph and spot the round mirror to the left of the computer, you will see my pink tartan pajama-ed legs!! ha ha, I hadn't noticed that until just now.
