My Place and Yours - Nice, Different & Unusual

The theme this week for Pip's meme was a tricky one! It was chosen by Toni here... Boy was this a tricky one. This is what she said...


Being the foxymoron that I am, I decided on the theme - That's nyoice, that's different, that's unewesyewl!*
Does your home have a quirky feature or several? Something you throw a strategically placed coat over if people are visiting or avoid telling the real estate agent about? You might be very proud of your house flaw. Maybe you have issues with plumbing, and give the Meryl Streep toilet speech from Mamma Mia, "Now about the toilet. If it doesn't flush right away, just go, then take a walk and...." with a hand wave.


Well I was really stumped on this. As far as I was concerned my house, place, space is pretty normal & ordinary! So I asked the other half. Within moments he had the answer! Our loo! Ok, so you all get a look at our very, very, very long loo room! lol It is ridiculous really & quite a waste of space but oh well. That's the way it was designed & built! I do keep the ironing board & clothes airer behind the door in there now as there isn't room anywhere else in the house. At least we don't have to do the dance around the loo just to shut the door like in some houses I have been in. They really didn't want to waste in inch in some places. So there you have it. My unusual long loo!





Lou, Lou, skip to my Lou
Lou, Lou, skip to my Lou
Lou, Lou, skip to my Lou
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'!

We have a long, thin toilet also, but not quite so long as yours ... a good spot for petanque, lino bowls, speed skating, maybe ...

This is so funny! I was thinking of blogging about my loo too as it is also long and narrow - easily as long as yours - but not as pretty. We put a large mirror over the basin to give an illusion of some width, but I don't know how successful that is.

Ooh handy for stretching out really, really long legs!

Nice you can fit the handbasin in there though. Mine has barely enough room for the loo!

hehe, that is noice! certainly a roomy loo - I think I would be using it for storage also. I like the hanging plant you have growing in there.
