This sunshine makes me both super happy and increasingly miserable. It’s so perfect to be out and about in, going to the park, having picnics and days out but I’d love to be able to enjoy the sunshine from the comfort of my own home or garden but living in a flat takes that option away unfortunately. Every year for the past 3, we’ve enjoyed being in the flat but come summer, we hate it. We crave a garden, BBQ’s, paddling pool fun and just the ability to sit out at night and have a drink or two. Due to finances, we’re staying putt for another year or two before moving into our own house and with that, comes 1 or 2 more summers of getting used to the ‘No garden’ aspect of our lovely little 2 bed flat.
One of the benefits we have at the flat is that if any of our appliances break, or something goes wrong, it’s the landlords duty to get them fixed so it is saving us money in the long run, I guess. Our dishwasher has a fault at the moment and our washing machine door is still broken, it’s still useable mind, but they’re just things that we need to get fixed that seem to get pushed aside. Panasonic do some extremely snazzy home appliances that I’d love to get my hands on and just have something that we can call our own. We already have a few little bits: kettle, microwave, slow cooker, tassimo machine etc but I know that when we do move out, we’ll have to bulk buy the majority to furnish the kitchen and it looks like Panasonic do it all. From fridge freezers to ovens and cookers - we’ll be set on getting the best of everything to make sure we have no problems in future.
I do suppose that living in a flat has it’s ups and downs, if we could do anything to it though we’d love to have a french window/door put in the living room which would open out onto the little bit of woodland at the back but it’s just not safe to do as it’s accessible by everyone else - it would be amazing though, just a tiny little deck... Ahh, the dream!
