There are some things worth avoiding when choosing your next home!
As a woman, now in her mid-20s (so much of that sentence feels so weird to write), I am now accustomed to moving house. I have essentially lived out of boxes and with half my stuff still in my bedroom at my parents’ house for the last six years of my life. I am used to not having the stuff I need when I need it. I recently bought a condo at https://residential.jll.de/ and can’t begin to describe how excited I am to move in.
To me, moving house is about more than whether there is a nice living area or not. Or at least, it should be, but I have a history of not always doing the best thing for my arthritis – in every possible aspect.
Looking round a prospective new home is no different. I’ve lived in some really mental places, most recently a basement with only stairs (without a handrail) in and out of it, and a serious damp problem. The trouble is – in the same way I still want to wear nice shoes despite my funny feet – I still want to live in nice, quirky places.
I’ve managed to combine a nice home with accessibility in my new place (we were in and out of the Mould Palace pretty sharpish, I can tell you) and I feel pretty content. I do worry sometimes though – because I’m in my mid-20s and currently fixated on the rest of my life, rather than what is actually going on now – about later life when I might need to live in a proper house.
In my head, I’m going to be Mrs Mega Journo, editing a national paper – with a lovely house somewhere snazzy in London, and then another lovely house somewhere in Yorkshire (for the weekends, you know), both with at least four bedrooms for guests. I’ve even thought about moving to somewhere like this beautiful Detached house in Barrie and going on an adventure in Ontario! It would be amazing!
I know this is all a dream and unlikely to happen, but whenever I have this dream all I can think is ‘How am I going to clean a four-bedroomed house if I’m having a flare up?’ and ‘What if things get so bad I can’t get upstairs to all of the lovely four bedrooms?’.
I don’t think I want to live in a bungalow. There should be some sort of system to deal with all of these ridiculous problems us arthritis warriors face, I reckon.
A great way to get some of the house cleaning done if you’re experiencing a flare up is by using a robot vacuum to do the work for you, which you can learn more about right here.
