Growing up we moved around a bit due to dad’s work. The first move was to go to the seaside due to my brother’s health as it turned out that living in a dusty air was not good for him and the sea air would be better. Dad had to leave his job and never really settled after that.
As we lived in different types of housing, I got use to moving never settling or being in any place for long. I was hoping when I grew up I would learn to live in one place. Not a chance married a man who liked to move and so learned to live in some more different places.
So in all I have lived in houses (various types), flats, units, hotel rooms, converted horse float, caravan, tent, cane farm, sedan car and a trimaran. Who is to say what a home should be, the only ones not by choice were the car and trimaran, I am hoping my children get to live in reasonable housing and never have to know what some of these places are like.to live. My oldest has experience some of these as a young child took it in his stride. The trimaran is another story.
