'My Place & Yours: just 5 minutes peace'

My place & Yours is being hosted by Pilgrim this week & she is asking where we retreat to for a sanity-regaining break. 
My favourite place to sneak away to is this chair in our bedroom.  It is the most comfy chair - it's actually a spring rocking chair, a bargain for just $20 from a local op shop!  I always had intentions of reupholstering it in a plush pale blue velvet, but it's grown on me just the way it is. Our room is really light and airy, perfect on both summer & winter days.  I often sneak up here to have my brekky in peace or just sit back with a cuppa & read a book.  In this chair I can close the door & leave all the mayhem behind me - even if it's just 10 minutes before they all track me down in dire need of something, anything, or nothing - just to be where I am...


Despite it being just the right size for one, it has been the perfect chair for rocking babies back to sleep in the middle of the night (often dosing off ourselves with baby snoring on our chest), and it's the perfect chair for having a quiet cuddle & chat about the troubles on little peoples minds.  I do love this quiet spot...
