A pendant to the other thread; What did you like most about your home as a child?
I’m asking this to gather ideas how to make my home a place where my son will be glad he grew up.
My own least favourite things about my home:
A space with boxes under my bed that I couldn’t see and was hard to clean. I slept above it in perpetual fear that there were spiders hiding there. There probably were.
Also, a there was wood fastened against the wall along my bed. That particular wall was moist, and the wood had a distinct mouldy odor, right where I slept. I remember niching my moms perfume and sraying the wood with it, whuch of course only made matters worse.
Our living room’s window looked out immediately on the street. If the curtains were open, and you sat on the couch , you were visible to anyone walking two yards away. It was like sitting in an aquarium, never being able to pick your nose in peace, always on the lookout if some enemy/classmate would pass (it was on the road to school, too).
