NaBloWriMo 5 (family time)

What is your favorite way to spend time with your family?
Note that due to time zone issues, this post is one day late :)

To the untrained eye, family life chez Rev looks like all the things we're warned about on alarmist tv programmes.  We don't eat together much and we all spend a lot of time on computers.  We don't plan "family time" and we're all balrogs in the morning.  Despite this, we enjoy each others company and wander from room to room sharing information, chatting generally and making plans.

We're all people who need a lot of space and we're are lucky enough to live in a very large house which allows that.  The usual convergeance point is my office, and it is often here that we spin our wilder dreams, plan holidays, run down what's been happening in the day and ask who forgot to buy the toilet paper.

Much as it's fun to go on holiday, my personal favourite times are Sunday afternoons, all doing our own thing, but very much on each others wavelength.  The house hums and feels good.


  1. We don't have a favourite thing to do yet. :D Just existing together is joy enough.

  2. Well, in essence that's what we do too :)

  3. it sounds wonderful. we practically live on separate floors... 2 writers in one house... but the stairs landing makes a great place for info exchange
