Solitude – Loo with a View

My interpretation of today’s Photography 101 assignment is slightly alternative. I’m not in the habit of having toilets in my garden, except this past week. You see, we’re renovating our bathroom and I happen to have the old toilet outside in front of my yellowwood tree. Temporarily, of course.

When I read the email outlining today’s “Solitude” assignment, I gave it much thought and really, when we go to the loo, what’s the one thing we want (apart from loo paper)? Solitude! I think this might resonate with parents. I say this because when I’m with my little nieces, they have a tendency to follow me into the bathroom. There is no privacy when you have a two and three year old hanging around! Their mom has said to me on numerous occasions that going to the toilet alone has become a luxury. With this in mind, hereΒ it is, my loo with a view.

  1. That’s a very nice loo Gen. Love it!!! I was just thinking the other day I can’t seem to hv private loo time in peace and marked it as a draft post – either the kids or cats or all of them seem to like keeping me company.

    Where’s the flush on that thing btw?πŸ˜„

    • Hi Ann! Welcome back πŸ™‚ Ohhhh you have such a good point – I guess this is a non-flushing loo, in order to fertilise the garden? That’s so gross! I hope you at least got some private loo time in Budapest!


  2. I agree with your sister! Lol I have a 2 and 3 year old and they make sure to go in there with me every time I go. So sometimes I have to hide but once I lock the door I hear them knocking asking what I’m doing lol Good interpretation of solitude πŸ˜ƒ

  3. I’ve recently (and temporarily!) moved back to the family home and I can say that this is the only time I get some piece and quiet! And there are no youngsters in my family. Parent’s are just as time consuming it seems! L x

    • Yes but at least they don’t follow you into the toilet (I hope?)! I hope all is well? It’s very difficult – the young and the not-so-young are equally time-consuming. Hope you get some solitude though and take care. X
