Moving back home after living away from home for a few fair years was definitely tricky at first!
Another key aspect of my living arrangement working is rent, I do pay rent; though I might not pay a lot of money, both myself and my parents feel this is important so that I am in the habit of paying rent monthly (I'll have to do it when I move out) and personally I would feel disrespectful if I didn't contribute in some way. I generally transfer the money to my parents bank account, that way it's much simpler and I don't have to worry about remembering to lift cash from the ATM, paying a little each month towards the running of the house, to me makes it much easier to feel in control and still feel that we're all in charge to a certain extent!
The 'We're All The Boss' concept is pretty interesting, Giff Gaff asked me to write a post about how I 'survive' living with my parents, it's pretty simple for me if I'm honest, being willing to give and take; by contributing to chores and helping out with my rent money, my relationship with my parents is much less strained! Yes we have a laugh and a bit of a joke but there's no need to post cringey texts online or set 'ground rules' though I have been known to tweet funny and ridiculous things they've said in the past :P
|This photo is hideous, but is also potentially one of my favourite family photos ever!|
1. We were the only ones on the ride at 9.50pm.
2. My Mum, Dad and youngest brother look terrified.
3. My face is in typical 'Iona' fashion...very expressive!
