I think it was CyberPetra who once asked about my delightful abode, so, in the absence of anything more meaningful to post about, I give you Castle DeVice. I must just say, however, that not all of it is on show. Some rooms I keep folded up in other dimensions, bringing them out when needed (saves on the dusting and cleaning). The grand ballroom and parlour are two of the said rooms. As for the dungeon, I folded it away somewhere safe and now can't find it! I hope there wasn't anyone in it?
Anyway, on with the tour and do wipe your feet before you come in:
First up is the living room (the front door is to the right - this pic was taken from the bay window).
This is the view back into the living room from the foot of the stairs and entrance to the dining room.
The view from my makeshift desk under the stairs into the dining room.
My tiny galley kitchen where various cakes are baked, both consciously and unconsciously.
I don't think I need say anymore, except that there is a toilet - I just think it's a bit impolite to take a photo of it. Call me a prude if you must.
Going up the stairs, this is the view down into the dining room.
The spare room where Tazzy & Piggy stayed. Of course, there was linen on the bed then - They didn't just sleep under an uncovered duvet. This room desperately needs decorating - I meant to do it after NonExistant Boy moved out but haven't got around to it yet.
My room. A bit nondescript, but then, no one ever sees inside it except me (and now you), so why bother?
Most of this was collected years ago except the books on the first third (from the left) of the top shelf. The middle shelf has all but six of my Star Trek: Deep Space Nine videos (all seven seasons worth) - The other six are on the bottom shelf.
I don't spend nearly enough time in here writing and drawing, and when I do, I tend to get distracted watching the birds in the tree and on the feeder in the back garden.
And there you have it.
