I used to love visiting Habitat on Tottenham Court Road, London, back in the day. It is possibly my favourite furniture shop ever. I never bought anything though. It was way too expensive for me but I did like to walk around and pretend. I'd allow myself to imagine all the lovely bits of furniture in a beautiful home that I did not own - that was equally conjured inside my very large capacious imagination as well - and just bring myself into the image. Me. Possibly a photoshopped version of my current self, but me all the same.

Now, I work in a furniture shop. I have the responsibility for all the accessories and making the store look great. I guess my imagination took shape. Slightly different to my imagination in that it isn't my home habitat, but it is a space I frequent and spend a great deal of time in, the universe has a funny sense of humour, methinks.

I run out of things to say. I look at the clock and see the seconds slipping by.

The annoying tone buzzes out. Stop!


This is my second 5 minute freewrite. I intend to stop by and take a look at some of the other participants, drop a comment, upvote where I can, and just enjoy this new community that I have found.

If you fancy taking a look you can drop by and check out today's freewriting post here and you'll find links to other #freewrite posts in the comments.

How wonderful - I can just see you drifting around Habitat, conjuring your perfect surroundings, home, self, life... and boy oh boy - yes the universe has a brilliant sense of humour! I used to be drawn into the lighting departments... I always thought it was like some kind of magical wonderland. My granddad always wanted to take me out when I went to visit him - and I always asked to go to the home interiors shops ;)

I loved your freewrite- this is definitely a community I want to get more involved with in 2019!

Great to share memories of Habitat with you, @eveningart.

My internet's been down most of today so apart from this quick post I wasn't able to get around and read the others. I guess they'll have to wait foe tomorrow now. ❤

How cool, is it antique furniture?

No, Habitat is known for its modern, unique collections of furniture. A bit of a tren setter really.
