So you may have noticed lately that I am now referring to our bedrooms by colour, not by who lives in the room. It’s not because we want to sound like some pretensiously expensive yet curiously homey and comfortable b&b, it’s just because… well… we tend to move people around the house a lot.
Reminds me of a conversation I had the last time Aunt Glenda visited.
“Where am I sleeping?” she asked.
“I thought I’d put you in The Gold Room.”
“The Gold Room? How swanky sounding.”
“Not really, just easier than trying to remember who usually sleeps there.”
The Gold room was ours for a while – before that, it was sort of a storage room, but promised to Addison. Now Sarah is in it, but soon she will move to The Grey Room, and we’ll finish up the Gold Room.
In my next house – and yes, I have thought about this a little too much – I decided I will continue with this new tradition. All bedrooms will be known by colour. Which means I’ll have to make sure they are each a different colour. Hmm. Kinda difficult when I am not exactly 100% certain what house I’ll be in this time next year.
