Having Your Own Space

How important is that to you?

It must be quite difficult when you are living together or are married?

Are you getting enough space for yourself?

I need a lot of space to myself as does my son.

We seem to have it worked out.I get up early,it’s 4am here and she doesn’t get up until 9am.Five hours is long enough apart :slight_smile:


You aussies are hitting the keyboard when you should be cuddling? :astonished:

We have to time right because the dog gets jealous.:slight_smile:

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

We like our own time and space…
…We have some different interests also…and some different Friends.
…We don’t need to be in each others ‘arms’ for any long periods.
…We are together in bed for many hours…we go out together.
So we do spend time apart as well as lot of time together.
…Have plenty to talk about the more time we are apart as well…


That’s wonderful Di! I’m glad you both have it worked out! Now if only he would pack his smalls away!

He did today…As I literally threw them at him…Netball came in handy,


Plenty of space for us. Might be a little more of a squeeze when we have six of us over for Christmas for a couple of weeks but the kids have their own bedrooms and the adults double beds.

I have always enjoyed having ‘my own space’ but think it has become more so since lockdown.
I am thinking of applying for one of those a hermit caves where the monks in the monastery above pass food down in a basket …

Same here Pauline, but I have my sun lounge & he has his room, so we do get on OK. Most of the time. :grinning:

I have a four bedroomed house, a double car port and a double garage/workshop on a quarter acre block all to myself, seems like enough to me.

Funny thing is with my first wife I don’t think we were ever apart until we separated permanently, my second wife buggered off leaving me with the kids, over the years they left home to pursue their own lives. Basically everything has worked out perfectly.

All the space I need is in my head. I can do anything I want in there. I can think, dream, plan, have fantasies, participate in reality, romanticise. Anything I want, and nobody gets hurt.

In the real world, we have a decent sized garden and I have a workshop attached to our garage a few paces from our back door, so there is enough room for me to go out and play on my own if I want to.

If my Lovely Cousin is not in my arms or next to me holding my hand, I am comforted by the knowledge that she is only a few paces away from me.
I never want nor need space away from her.


Since we have our own hobbies we have as much time to ourselves as we need.
My husbands 24 x 24 garage with all
His favourite tools helps lots.

I am on my own most evenings…hubby does his own thing. Im OK with my own company well me and the cat :slight_smile:
