Anyway back to the hear and now. What would I say my dream home is? Firstly if I had a nice win on the lottery, or Heir Hunters came chapping on my door, it would be off to the Scottish Islands for me. Shetland or thereabouts. A nice remote part of the island. Would have myself a nice 4*4 vehicle to get about, a helipad out the back and pass my licence to enable me to fly back and forth when I felt like it, well the shopping has to get there somehow.
My house would be a modest three bedrooms, big enough for the offspring to visit but not big enough to move back again, two would have en-suites. A nice log/coal burning stove in the main living room. My kitchen would be like something you see on the tv, big, well equipped, all the mod cons, a table at one end, an island in the middle and a nice modern aga to cook on and to keep the kitchen warm. Their would be a utility room for the appliances.
|I can but dream|
One living room would be adequate, with a fifty inch tv on one of the walls, and I would get sky tv back. I would have a gym round the back with a tv in, and a small covered swimming pool. No I dont want much, but I can dream. I have visions of the good life with various animals and an allotment. Not forgetting I need a fast reliable internet connection.
I asked the two grandchildren what their dream homes would be. Fifi at eleven is going to need a chunk of my lottery win or to find a richer mummy and daddy if she is to get her dream house.
In her own words hers is to have
- six floors
- a floral front garden
- a six acre back garden
a cinema room with a public bathroom. and a massive flat screen tv. this will be big enough to seat twenty five people.
is a single spare bedroom, a public bathroom and a play area for children
this is your kitchen, dining room, living room and public bathroom
2 master bedrooms, both en-suite and one with walk in wardrobe. this will have five sections so she can keep her stuff neat and tidy and easily findable.
a games room with ipads, computers and x-boxes. It will also have a library a room for playing board games and an entrance to the soft play area.
PARTY ROOM - pretty much as it sounds.
The house has a lift at one side and stairs at the other.
The six acre back garden will be split as follows
acres 1-2 a swimming pool with an opening roof, and one end deep enough to dive in
acres 3-4 stables, big enough for her three horses and three ponies.
acres 5-6 has a massive hill to run around, a play area and a petting zoo with rabbits and guinea pigs.
Bob has different ideas to both of us.
Bob's dream house is a tree house. He took his idea from the tv programme Phineas and Ferb.
His tree will have a button that will make it come alive an be able to walk. It has arms and legs.
it will have
- a kitchen with a table
- 4 bedrooms
- a living room with a big tv
- a bathroom
- a play area for kids with
- a sofa bed that sleeps fifteen
