A shiny new word with endless possibilities! I'm happy to say that I'm already embracing the word and I'm feeling quite excited about it!
Over the weekend I dusted off the old computer desk and dragged it from the shed to the house, and it fitted perfectly in our mud room. What's a mud room you ask?
Many Suburban American houses have a mud room, a casual, generally secondary entryway intended as an area to remove and store footwear, outerwear, and wet clothing before entering the main house. As well as providing storage space, a mud room serves to increase the cleanliness of a house proper.
A house proper! I like it!
Our mud room is a small room we have at the top of the stairs, leading from our garage. At one end of the room is the laundry and at the other end is a doorway, which doesn't actually have a door, rather some country fretwork, leading into the dining room and the main area of the house.
This room is perfect for our computer desk and work station, for a notice board to hold our calendars, school reminders, bills to be paid, invitations, sporting notes and general crap, that until now, sat in disarray on a bench in the pantry.
Opposite the computer desk we will have an area with hooks and space for school bags, coats and hats and boots, and each child (and grown up!) will have their own place to store bits and pieces to stay organised!
I love this room, and it's starting to take shape. Now to find some wall hooks......
