"The People's Republic of Lazylaces is a tiny, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure."
My main aim now is to corner the world cheese market with my thriving cheese export industry [county founded at Nationstates].
1. How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life? Two in Cornwall, one in Newbury, two in Stoke-on-Trent, two in Bristol and five here on the Hampshire/Surrey border - I make that 12 in all. The flat I'm in now will be the first one I've owned when the sale goes through.
2. Which was your favorite and why? I'm split between my second flat in Bristol which 7 of us shared for two years and it holds loads of great memories (water fights at midnight during the summer) and my first house share with Andy in Mytchett (Surrey) which was a constant laugh - taking holidays from work at the same time to party all week.
3. Do you find moving house more exciting or stressful? Why? Stressful definately. The packing , unpacking, cleaning, etc at moving time just takes it all out of me. At one point I managed to live in 3 different places in less than 2 years - I was so sick of packing my life away and moving on. The only thing I do like about moving is driving the van! I must have suppressed white van man genes.
4. What's more important, location or price? I'd love to say location, but if that were true I'd be living in Fulham or Chelsea instead of a 45 minute commute out of London.
5. What features does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)? It would be in London, near great pubs and restaurants, and include a home cinema, some form of wi-fi network and a top-notch power shower.
