Hello, today I'm going to talk to you about my house. My house is in London. It is a detached house, which means it's not joined on to any other houses. It is separate. Downstairs there's a utility room where we keep the washing machine, the drier and a freezer. Also downstairs there's a kitchen, living room, conservatory and a bathroom. The kitchen is quite big, it has a dining table where we eat, so we don't have a separate dining room. There's the living room, where we usually sit and watch TV. This is the conservatory, where we sit and look at the garden  and watch the wildlife in the garden. Even though we live in a city our garden has foxes, squirrels and lots of different birds.

Upstairs there are two big bedrooms, two small bedrooms, a bathroom and a study where my husband has  his computer and where he works. We moved to this house in the year 2000 and we are quite happy here. It's near  the station and very convenient for the shops.

What about your house? What's it like.
