or should we be grateful for what we’ve got?
I’ve been a bit absent from the blogging world what with work and the kids off school for the summer but today whilst putting the washing away I was pondering the question – should I be grateful for what I’ve got?
Now I do love our house, we live in the house I grew up in from the age of 7. But it’s not THE house, its not my forever house. But thinking that does make me feel guilty – albeit it is a generous sized house to many, yet only 2 bedrooms upstairs means the kids share (and they are getting to the age where they need their own space now) I’m sure many are struggling in much smaller spaces with some living at parents or all sharing a room, which makes me think I should definitely be grateful that we have a nice house.
Although is striving for more important? Is that what drives us all along in life? To push ourselves harder at work because we long for that bigger house or that newer car? I like to tell myself it’s ambition that makes me crave that dream house – I love looking at all the houses for sale on right move and wondering what it would be like to live there, I don’t even want a big house – just 3 bedrooms will do but the exterior is what draws me in. You can make a house look however you like inside but it’s the period/cottage/character of a house that I crave. A nice gravelled drive and a house bursting with history and character is my dream. Will I ever achieve it? Who knows but I’m sure I’ll keep hoping and nosing online!
Do you live in your forever home? Maybe we should share our houses! Who lives in a house like this could be a new feature! Who’s up for it?
