  • My boyfriend and I bought a bungalow.

    Our niece is constantly confused about why we don't have stairs. It's true, why don't we have stairs? The only answer I have is that 'it's because we live in a bungalow'.

    My boyfriend is a plasterer. That translates to builder to a four year old. He can build the stairs. (Of course he can, he can do anything!)

    Trouble is, we don't have any rooms up there, just a loft space. However, to a four year old that doesn't matter. We just need stairs - all houses have stairs.

    So, I asked her 'What shall we put up there if we build stairs?' A jungle? A zoo? A theme park? A giant trampoline? Or even a McDonalds?

    WELL ... That's just silly isn't it. Even a four year old knows that much.

    So, after much discussion, it's settled. When we build the stairs, we're having a princess mermaid fairy garden. With ice cream.
