Who throws stones at any sort of house?
The old saying, people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, was the first thing I thought of when I saw this week’s prompt of glass for #SundayStills.
It doesn’t really have much to do with my post, except to introduce you to my glasshouse/sunroom/garden room in the backyard. Regular visitors to my blog will recognise my special retreat in the garden as it’s been featured quite a few times.
I’ll tell you a secret though, it’s not actually made of glass – it’s polycarbonate but I still don’t want anyone throwing stones at it, thanks very much!
It looks a bit like glass and acts like glass so it’s still a ‘glasshouse’. I love sitting out there in winter, spring and autumn – but summer it’s just too hot even with the doors open. I use it for a range of activities – an exercise room, a reading room, a writers retreat and a place to sit when it’s raining cats and dogs. It’s light, warm, cosy and has the best views all year round. I’m very lucky to have this space!
I wrote this post A sunroom with a difference back in 2019, which explains the background to getting our special sunroom, which we’d had for a few years already.

Every time we get wind warnings I panic that it will blow away but it’s survived high winds, storms and even a tree falling on it.
I have enjoyed taking some mirror photos over the years too, mainly through my bike mirror.
This is a piece of art I came across in a gallery in Sweden – it was a bit different!
There’s a glass of champagne in here somewhere!
I’ll leave you with a favourite past-time of mine, reading in my sunroom!
