I have spent the last few days desperately searching for a new house over in England. By new ,I mean one that is
A. not out in the middle of nowhere
B. One that is not an absolute cracker box
C. not totally lacking a closet
Is it so much to ask that a living room be big enough to hold a couch,without the couch having to be at some weird angle?
Apparently ,yes,it is too much to ask. Why are the houses over there so damn dinky??
In one ad I saw, they were actually bragging "This flat is over 800 square feet!"
I'm sorry, what? I think my living room is 800 square feet here at home.
Seriously,what is this living room about 8 feet wide?
(note the dining room table right behind the couch)
When the dining room table must be crammed right by the couch this is called an "open plan lounge"
What if I need end tables?
That little square of wood, yes folks that IS the living room.
A personal favorite.or NOT!
This kitchen right in the same room would make me feel like I was living in a motel room.
A spacious bedroom. Also known as a "single"
That's the whole thing.Oh and no closet. Where would you put your clothes?
Now we're cooking. This is known as a "double"
It boggles my mind that there are entire families living in this amount of space.
Pardon me now while I go scream my frustrated head off.
Happy Tuesday Peeps!
