Share Your World – Week 19

Share Your World – 2015 Week #19

Share Your World

This week’s questions are all about your home, whether it be a house, a mansion, a trailer, an apartment, or treehouse.  I hope you enjoy this mini theme version of Share Your World.


If you have a TV, would you prefer the TV in the living room or another room?

I have a tv in my living room and in my bedroom and there are benefits and negatives to both. I enjoy having a tv in my room, especially at the moment. We’re heading into Winter and lying in bed at night with the rain pouring outside of my window, is heaven. I feel really isolated though if I stay in my room for too long, I’m not out being social and talking with my mum and playing with my puppy. Which is funny because when I got the tv everyone was worried I’d never come out of my room and I’ve found I like it, the convenience is great. I need real people though too!lol

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?

I actually live in a “town-house” which is a type of small house, but it’s two levels. I prefer a one floor house. There are just some days where you are sick (self-inflicted or not) and it can be hard to get up those stairs. The amount of times that I have fallen both up and down the stairs as well. My partner last weekend fell down on his socks down our stairs and his back still hurts =/

When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time? Explain your answer.

If I’m alone at night, I tend to leave a lot of the lights on. I will turn the lights off if I’m watching a movie, but I make sure that my puppy is sitting with me. I turn all the lights off usually in my day to day business.

What’s your favorite room in your home?

I pretty much love every single room. I am such a homebody, I come home from work and it’s the only time that I can get changed in a minute, get out of my work clothes and into my comfy clothes. Home is where my heart is and home is where I feel the safest.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Definitely my partner, I can’t believe how sweet and patient that he has been with me. My last relationship left me broken and I felt like I could never let anyone back into my life again. He hasn’t just proven me wrong, but he’s helped me become stronger.
This week I am looking forward to it being a quiet week and not having to go out and “shine” so to speak. It’s going to be pretty relaxing and I haven’t had that in a while.

 

Time Warp…

This is such a sweet news article and I just had to share it…”Australia’s oldest couple sell time warp Mosman home after 76 years

In 1938 this couple bought the only home (at the time) in the suburb of Mosman. They bought it so many years ago that it was in the same year as Sydney held the “Commonwealth Games” but it was also known back then as “The Empire Games”. This was during a time when a average family home cost around $1000 and a loaf of bread was only a sixpence.

Tom and Jean, the owners of the house, are both over a 100 years old, and while they are both very much alive and kicking. They can no longer take care of their own home and are moving into a nursing home. The amazing thing about this house is that it still has the same fittings and the same furniture from when they first moved in. The house is in complete pristine condition and looking at the pictures you would think you have taken a step back in time.

The other thing that stood out to me reading this article was when they asked him about giving any advice about marriage. Tom replied with “I don’t really think I can give them advice but I don’t think people stick at marriage anymore,’’ he said…Wise words I think…
