Best Things About Having a House

As you may know (or not), my boyfriend and I have lived together for about two years. However, during that time we've lived with my family and his, but finally got our own place January this year.

There's been so many positives about having our own space, so I thought I'd share.

  • Freedom - Get up whenever, go to bed whenever, cook, clean, shower at any time and not disturb anyone else in the house. Could even walk around naked if I was that way inclined.

  • Independence - I'm getting on now, I'm 29, it's about time I had my own place. The bill paying is a downside but who likes paying bills?

  • Decorating - Having everything in your own style; I've always loved interior design so decorating a whole house is awesome.

  • Different rooms - When living with family we spent most of our time in a bedroom; now I can lie in bed reading and Ian can watch telly in the living room.

  • Stuff - Just having your stuff anywhere you want and knowing nobody (Mother, I'm looking at you) will move it to a 'safe place', never to be seen again.

  • Books - I love my bookcase and having it on display in our living room brings me joy; it's also a conversation-starter.

  • Us - The Bung is something that belongs to Ian and I, it's our space.

Do you agree with me, or have anything to add?


  1. I loved this post!
    My partner and I are in a house share at the moment but we're moving out very soon for all of these reasons and more. I can't wait to have our own space.

  2. My mum still keeps moving my stuff to a safe place. Whyy must mums do this. I still haven't quite got used to the fact that I have a whole house just for my crap.
