Yes, over here. No, not there, a bit to the left…that’s it! See me now? *waves*
I’m sat here in my little Rapunzel-esque tower and there’s no way I’m throwing down my hair, or anything else for that matter, because I like it here on my own.
I’ve closed all the shutters and padlocked the doors and for extra protection there’s a circle of razor wire around the turrets so don’t even try.
This place is a-may-zing, I’ve got a 360 view of the most gorgeous vista you can imagine, and yes it changes…it’s whatever I want it to be. A bit like the Faraway Tree without The Land of Tempers.
The food is beyond divine, all cooked to order and presented on plates that are warmed ‘just-so’.
I’m not bored, there’s every kind of entertainment you could imagine, forget Sky+, I’ve got Sky3D and I can watch what I want WHENEVER I want it. In fact, if Carlsberg made fantasy lands this would be it…
I can see everything from here, I can see all of you laughing and bickering, living your lives, doing your day-to-day thing. If you say something hurtful I can rewind, make it so it never happened, and change channel quick. There’s no disagreement here, no hierachy, no bitchiness or cruelty, nothing ever goes wrong and no one ever gets hurt.
This is not a ‘woe is me’ post. I’m just having a moment, a solitary moment that I thought I’d share (oh, the irony!). This is the place that I’m transported to on those lazy afternoons lying in the warm spot on my bed created by a streak of sunshine, lost in a book, or on a day spent pottering in the garden with my family. It’s also the place that I run and hide in, whenever real life gets just a bit too pointy.
But what about you? What’s your idea of Utopia? Where’s your safe place? Maybe we could swap interior design tips…and if you ever need to borrow mine, you’re more than welcome 😉
