    I Do Own My Own Home. ...

    I do own my own home. This is the third house I hav bought, but the first that is my ideal home. I have 5 acres of bush, cannot see the neighbour and am far enough away that people dont visit unless they tell me first. I love that! It gives me space to recharge and breathe.

    My Dream

    Nothing grand- I'd do well with a modest little cottage or cabin, a good-sized yard in which I could grow a garden, a quaint little kitchen with plenty of counter space, and a cozy fireplace to spend cold nights in front of.Maybe some day.
