More Five

1. How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life?

This took me a minute to tally: 10.

2. Which was your favorite and why?

Of course I loved having my own place in London, so I think I'd say that was my favourite although it wasn't the prettiest house, I didn't have to share it with anyone.

3. Do you find moving house more exciting or stressful? Why?

Most of the moves in my life were made when I was under 10 (I lived in 9 of the 10 places before I was 10 years old) and I always found it exciting and never worried about making new friends and changing schools. Now, I'd find it stressful.

4. What's more important, location or price?

Location is great but what's the point if you can't afford the house? In Santa Barbara we rented, but we saw our dream house and could afford it, but it had lousy feng shui (obvious even to my family, the most basic feng shui practitioners) so we didn't buy it.

5. What features does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)?

Rachel Ashwell's house makes me drool with all it's Shabby Chic-ness. I love her hidden little spa and other nooks and crannies to just relax.
