Home-bods for a change
17 January 13
It’s nice to be in a house. While our bus is in the workshop, we’ve been offered a room in a partially vacant student share-house (university hasn’t started yet).
It may not seem like it now, but I’m a natural home-bod. When living in a house, I was happy to stay at home most of the time, and I considered outings to be an inconvenience to my placid life. I think the girls could easily turn into home-bods too, and that’s why our current mode of living and learning works well — we’re out experiencing life instead of just reading about it or watching it go by on a screen.
However, for a change, we all enjoy a day at home. As we’re in a different environment, we explore the back yard, make use of the facilities and take advantage of our time with the things that we can’t replicate in our housebus.
It’s not our home, however, and we’re missing our constant access to food, clothes, toys and familiar spaces. The girls are sometimes creative in finding ways to replicate their usual way of life.
