I moved to a new apartment at the weekend, after living in a windowless cupboard for over 3 years. I cannot express my joy at such a simple upgrade.
The fridge isn’t in my bedroom – I have a little kitchen!
It is no longer necessary to turn sideways in order to sit on the toilet – I have a huge (relatively speaking) bathroom!
I don’t wash under a trickle of water any more – I have a powerful shower!
My laundry isn’t strewn all over the place to dry – I have a utility room!
The lights don’t have to be switched on until night time – I have windows! Daylight!! Blue skies and sunshine from the comfort of my own home!
It’s still tiny, and it’s not exactly luxurious living, but it’s pretty much perfect for me. (All I want as an improvement in the next place I live is a separate living room, and maybe a little balcony. ;)) For the first time in a long time, I am happy to get home in the evenings, instead of sighing wearily as soon as I open the door and see the dark, cluttered, cramped chaos.
I have a home, hooray!
Oh, and this is my walk (of less than a minute!) to school in the mornings…
