That building there is currently my home. Well not the whole building, just part of the 27th floor. 🙂 We’ve lived here over two years now and while it took a while to adjust (I have vertigo) to how high we are I love it now. If you follow me on Instagram or FaceBook or Twitter you would have seen plenty of pix of the view. It’s spectacular and one of the main reasons we picked this place. Oh, and you all know it’s in Singapore, right? Of course I’m not from here, although we have lived here before, in fact we lived in the condo complex right next door to this one so when we were told (by Mr.C’s work) that we were heading back to Singapore we knew exactly where we wanted to live. And to be honest, it was kinda like coming home. We’re familiar with the area. And even though it had been six years since we’d lived here not much had changed.
Of course you all know I’m from Oz right? Home for us has always been Sydney. Both Mr.C and I were born and bred in that city and all our family is there, hell some of the kids still live in our house. A house we’ve had for 25 years. We raised our kids there until we dragged them (some kicking and screaming) to Singapore in 2007. We stayed 3 years then went right back to where we were before we left, a little older, somewhat wiser, and definitely happy to be close to our extended family once more. This time the move meant leaving all the kids behind. That was an interesting thing. We hadn’t live on our own for 27 years. And for me, working from home, having an empty house was super strange. And depressing. It took a while and now we have #TheKid here for a year so that’s changed things again, but I think we’re (okay me) in a better head-space with the changes in our lives. Toss in a couple of Gbabies and bam. Life changes all round it seems.
Wow. I got a little off track there….. 😆 So what I wanted to talk about was where do you live, where have you live, where was the best place you lived and what do you consider home? For us, it’s both places. Our apartment here in Singapore and our house in Sydney.
Don’t be shy, tell me where you’re from, where you’ve been, and if you’re not where you want to be where is that?
