When we were looking at buying our house I just thought what a perfect space for a bench. That was eight years ago and still no bench. I am of course talking about my laundry. Well, its actually an outside bathroom and laundry. Surely living by the sea with small children the bathroom would be vital for washing off sand before entering the sanctuary of the home. No! We used it as a bathroom once, the rest of the time it was for storage, mostly spiders but I have to say but better there than inside the house!
