What are you supposed to call the playroom if not that?

MaureenCognito Sat 13-Oct-12 18:19:08

Years ago when I was growing up we had a neighbour who used to call her baby daughter's bedroom the nursery. And to add insult to injury it was a tiny tiny room. I've not got a playroom a spice rack or a feature wall. Though I did fancy the idea of a mural in DD's bedroom once. But I think they've gone out of fashion now.

Can we add 'family room' to the list. It makes me feel stabby

None of the above but I have a bloody great vase with twigs and fairy lights in the corner of the living room.

Hmm. So what should we call a room full of toys, books and games in which the DCs play? It isn't their bedroom, we don't generally hang out in there as we have separate sitting room (in which only books and board games are allowed because I want one room in the house which isn't full of Star Wars shoot me).

My kettle is the same colour as my aga - is that ok wink

No, no and no

Inneedofbrandy Sat 13-Oct-12 18:22:13

I would love a play room, it would be full of kids stuff and comfy sofas. Then I would have a parlour for any posh guest who come round LOL and I could escape from the DC!

Thewidewideworld Sat 13-Oct-12 18:22:24

Oh yeh AND a canvas with my children's footprints on it over the living room fireplace.

Am I the biggest loser?

So what is the proper term for a playroom then or is it just the fact that people have a room that is just used for the kids toys the problem? I have a press full of spices which would probably be easier to find and organise if I had a rack.
