Moving House

Day005 - Moving Home

Day005 – Moving Home (Photo credit: Bernard Farrell)

Must have bath
I’m not spending the next two years
Only showering

Must be close to shops
I have no interest in driving long distances
Just to get milk

Must be close to work
I also have no interest in driving and parking
In the city

Must be safe
I like living alone
But I don’t want fear

Must be quiet
I’m an old fogey now
And need my sleep

Must feel welcoming
Ghosts are welcome co-tenants
Only if they’re friendly

Must have storage
I honestly don’t know how
I’ve collected all this junk

Minimal garden too
I’ve never had a green thumb
And never will

Checklist ready
How much will I
Need to compromise
By the end?

    Very familiar πŸ™‚

  4. Haha my husband and I are looking for places too and we have a lot of the same requirements. I can’t drive (Epilepsy) so it sort of forces us to be in the city which is expensive. In the country we could get a house but in the city only apartment. We also need a big kitchen and since I have a daughter who will become a teenage girl eventually we need an extra bathroom!
