Where I live is warm, quiet and safe – although it does feel quite empty at times. Our flatmates frequent different hours from us, but at least the bathroom is always free.
Since moving in here we’ve been re-introduced to a few modern amenities that were lacking in our previous flat. Deliciously hot showers, microwaves and television have become luxuries that we marvel at daily.
There’s a loud sort of silence that is strange after months of motorway lullabies. The air is fresher out West, and it’s the sun, not a bus’s beeping horn that wakes me up in the mornings.
