I live in a house near the sea. It's an old house, about 100 years old, and it's very small. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs but no bathroom. The bathroom is downstairs next to the kitchen and there's a living room where there's a lovely old fireplace. There's a garden in front of the house. The garden goes down to the beach and in spring and summer there are flowers everywhere. I live with my parents, and we have a lot of visitors. My city friends often stay with me.
