The English proverb says “My home is my castle”. To my mind, it doesn’t really matter whether my house is large or small, whether it is of a modern or old design – it always remains the place. I’m most concerned about. My home is the best place in the world and my dearest person lives here.
Now it is time for me to say a few words about what my home is like. I live in a one-room flat of a nine-storeyed block of flats. My house has a very pleasant and convenient location, because the windows of the room and the kitchen face a small piece of The Volga river and a hydroelectric power plant and school stadium. It is one of the most ecologically clean districts of the town. Besides it’s very quiet and peaceful. Another advantage is that we have a rather big balcony. But the disadvantage is that we share a rather small room with my mother. We feel the shortage of space especially when the school year begins: because my mother is a teacher and we both have to prepare for our classes and we both need a desk, a computer, some privacy. And at such moments I dream of a room of my own.
Of course in our flat w have: a kitchen, a bathroom, a hall and a larder. Naturally, we have all modern conveniences such as central heating, electricity, gas, cold and hot running water.
Now I want to say few words about our room, it combines a lot of functions. This room looks rather cozy, but there is too much furniture in it. It’s very nice because there are light curtains on the windows, matching the light wallpaper; the TV is opposite the sofa, and the wardrobe is opposite the window.
I like flowers, and we sometimes buy home plants, and there are many of them in our flat. In summer we put them out on to the balcony/
But the most favorite and most often visited place is, of course, kitchen. I don’t know what attracts s there so much. It’s rather large. There is a gas cooker and a table, a refrigerator, a sink and a lot of home appliances such as: a mixer, an electric kettle, a toaster, a blender and many others. The kitchen serves us as a dining room too. In the evenings we often have little gatherings in the kitchen over a cup of tea, chatting, laughing and discussing the events of the day.
To crown it all, I want to say that I really want to have the room of my own, because it would mean that I would have more independence and privacy. But it is only a sweet dream.
I love my home very much, but I can’t say I like the flat I live in, because I should characterize or living conditions as crampted.
