We have been deliberating over selling our house for the past year now. I love my house but I would love it even more if I could lift it up and put it in the middle of a field! Don't get me wrong I am quite socialble and friendly!!! However it would be nice if you could choose when you want to be. I live on a street where some of the other parents have quite different views on parenting than me. No bad thing, it be a boring world and all that but I struggle.(it's the teacher in me!)
I don't want my four and eight year olds to have mobile phones - yet!
I want to put them in their beds before the watershed!
I want them to dress like children!
I want them to know that you don't have to fake tan/bleachhair/slap on the makeup to appeal to others!
I'm sorry if I have offended(I'm partial to the odd bit of self tanning myself) but I think it's important to set values even if they aren't the same as others. Whatever suits you.
So up went the house for sale last Monday and six days later, seven viewings, three notes of interest, it sold!
We are now homeless! Now the fun of choosing a new one ;)
