Storage wanted

Storage space. We don’t have enough in our little London basement flat.

It gives me the irrits if I think about it too much.

Especially when I see great walls full of books or big closets full of organised clothes in other people’s homes.

Envy and covetousness. They’re such joy sappers, aren’t they?

Suddenly we’re looking at all the things others have. And the many blessings we’ve got shrivels up and disappears in a puff of smoke.

So yes. The lack of storage space in our place is irritating. But today I will choose to look at the positives of living in our little flat.

It’s small. So vacuuming doesn’t take very long.

It’s small. So I always know where my son and husband are and can easily see how they’re faring.

It’s small. But it’s in a great location. We have wooded parklands called the Common around the corner. We have a space where there’s a village market most weekends. There is also easy access to public transport that can whiz us around London.

It’s small. So it’s cosy. The flat doesn’t take that much to heat either. A great blessing as energy prices soar.

There are many good things about living here – a small place that lacks storage.

I just need to stop looking at great floor to ceiling shelves filled with books and wanting them. Desperately.

I won’t reach the top shelves anyway.

I’m too short.
