Bloganuary 20 – What Irritates You About the Home You Live In?

I live in a flat, on the third floor of a smallish appartment building. Don’t mind me, I can’t get my terms straight, having been born and raised in the South West US, transplanted to Italy and confusing the terminology of US, UK and Italian-to-English.

Anyway, a 73 mt2 flat with two bedrooms, one bath and a kitchen/dining/living area. The one bath is a killer, with three adults and a cat all sharing it. I’m also not thrilled at the moment because the building is having cladding applied, so we currently have no balcony and no view out the windows because of the scaffolding and cloaking of the scaffolding.

It is what it is, but it’s wearing. The only positive thing about the cladding work so far is that the flat is warm without really having to turn on the heating, so it is working.

I will be very happy to have my balcony back when the work is finished, but I still wish we had another loo.
