Diet Day 22 – Treetops

My ideal place for relaxation would be way up high.  I have dreamed for years of having a treehouse, of being able to climb up high, reach for the sky, and breathe in the air, relax and unwind.  I tried the excuse of having kids…..’darling, wouldn’t it be fab if they had a treehouse to play in’.  I tried the ‘we need to finish the garden before the kids leave home’.  And I tried the ‘I’ll take over the shed if you don’t build me one’.  But none worked.  10 years later, the tree has grown bigger, along with the kids, and I’ve gazed longingly at the bottom of the garden and wished for a magical kingdom high above the ground to be created.  Nowadays, it would be clad with all the latest electronics/gadgets and gizmo’s; wifi, widescreen and a log burner.  Back then, I  would have been happy to settle for a wooden floor and roof, a cozy chair, and my books.  Surfing the internet in the last couple of days…….. Hubbie, be scared.  These are the latest and greatest of the treehouse kingdom, and I’m still dreaming (and wishing for some DIY makeover!!).

  1. Do you think we would need planning permission for this ?? This could solve our missing guestroom problem….. We’ll go in the tree house and the guests can have ours…..and the kids 🙂

    Ooooh YES PLEASE! With some of these, you could just demolish the house entirely – or rent it out while you luxuriate in the treehouse!

    Thanks for popping by and looking at my brownie recipe today – though it did make me giggle that this is a detox page. I think brownies are probably as toxic as it gets (although brown sugar is less refined than white, and raisins are a fruit…ha!).

    (on the plus side, they are so rich and satisfying that you only eat one. Or at the most two. And a half…) x

    • Thanks for passing by my blog too! I have 2 kids who are definitely NOT detoxing and can’t wait for mum to get back into her normal cooking mode at the end of the month (hence the search)!
      Loved your graphics by the way, it led me to your blog. Good luck Lizzi
