have you any idea how interesting it is to interview future home-sitters in Paris? There is a couch in my flat and I even felt as an analyst. Different people sat there and told me about their needs, love-life, reasons to separate or not from their former partner.
What they wanted, or not in a flat.
It is fascinating because there are still some personal objects in my flat: a book, a detail forgotten here and there. Someone told me he wouldn’t have people see his bedroom. Or he didn’t like the disposition of the kitchen. Or he wanted to cook and the oven is not big enough. They tried to picture themselves in a space that is new to them.
Some of them are confused about what they are looking for. Big flat in a remote area or small and central? Big family kitchen or small and close to action?
But in any case, it was so great to listen to life stories, aspirations, … well have I concluded?
Almost, but not quiet.
And it is time to get back to London. I will need your help on this one.
