I remember being little and reading Hansel and Gretel thinking that the Witches house made of biscuits and sweets would be the most incredible house to live in. It was my dream house after all who wouldn’t want a house made out of deliciousness? Um a grown up that’s who for starters there would be excessive temptation to innumerable calories, the chocolate would melt in sunlight and can you imagine the ants?
When I was 19 and a uni student I was working at an inner Sydney aged care facility they called me in on my day off to play chaperone on a lunch excursion for a group of residents. On the way back the bus driver took our group through some beautiful streets for an arvo drive and there it was the most gorgeous house I had ever seen. It was in Hunters Hills Sydney located on the water, it had a wrap around porch and even a tire swing in the front yard. I expressed in my youth and naivety that this was my dream house…the driver very quickly informed me that dreams were expensive and that this particular dream would cost at least 2 million dollars.
So you know what my house would look like on the outside but what would it be like on the inside?
Well for starters that wrap around porch would have the most incredible porch swing on it.
I would spend my summers swimming in my incredible pool and teaching my nephews and nieces and hopefully my children how to swim in said pool.
I would love a big bright kitchen that the family could all hang out in.
I asked hubby what he would want in our dream home and was suprised when it wasn’t a man cave or super playstation playing room or the ultimate garage. Chris requested that our dream home have a home theatre with its own candy bar.
