An Eye On: HOUSES

My sister and my sister-in-law have both moved from flats to houses this month. I'm not jealous at all *wails*. I'm not jealous of their multiple bedrooms, their gardens and en suites, and I'm most definitely not jealous of the antique market and junk shop finds my sister keeps joyfully emailing me. Nope, not at all jealous. Really.

Living in our rented garden-less flat has its benefits; hours spent on house renovations, clutter-juggling (we moved here with two suitcases apiece), and gardening, are now occupied by adventurous outdoor pursuits, but I do mourn the creative freedom that owning your own property affords. Not to worry though because in my head I actually live here. One day, it will all be mine.
