My first home as a child. We lived there 8 years, I think. I'm 42 now and haven't lived many places longer than about 2 years since. I'd long since stopped unpacking. Dh and I finally bought our first house a year ago and we pretty much plan to live here until we die or the dc pack us off to a care home. I still can't bring myself to unpack. I only just managed to buy a few houseplants last month, and we've been here nearly a year and a half now.

Childhood home and the first home we bought, tying at 18 years each. We only moved 2 years ago - it was meant to be our starter home, but we ended up extending into the loft and staying much longer than we planned.
