My home

  I would like to tell you a few words about my home. To begin with, I want to tell you that I live in Odessa. Our city is comparatively young, but it is famous for being the biggest seaport of Ukraine and a popular sea resort. It is a crossroads of cultures, languages and trade.

  Our family lives in a new flat in one of the largest newly built residential areas. We moved into our flat seven years ago. It is a three-room flat on the fifth floor of an eight-storey building. It consists of a living-room, a study, a bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom, two closets and a lavatory. There are two balconies in our flat: the first one is in the living-room, and the second one is in the bedroom. Our flat has all modern conveniences: central heating, running cold and hot water, electricity, telephone and gas. Besides, there is a lift and a chute in our building. The layout is very good. I must admit. The rooms are light, though not very large. In my opinion, it’s quite a modern-looking flat. The windows face the park in front of the building and the view is really wonderful.

  Our living-room is quite a big room of about 19 square metres. It is the largest room in our flat. My parents don’t like much furniture in the house, so in the living-room there are two comfortable armchairs, a sofa, a coffee-table and a nice thick carpet on the floor. Opposite the window there is a wall unit, but it doesn’t take much space in the room. Of course there is a colour TV set, a stereo tape-recorder and a DVD in the living-room. A nice chandelier is hanging from the ceiling and there is a standard lamp to the left of the sofa. During the day. the light comes in through the window, but at night, when it gets dark, we switch on the light and draw the curtains across the windows. We like to receive our guests in this room.

  Now I would like to describe our study. At first it was my daddy’s room, but as 1 grew older, it became mine. To tell you the truth. I am very happy to have a room for myself, that’s why I always try to keep it tidy. There is a sofa, a writing table, a bookcase and a wardrobe in my room. On the wall there are some shelves full of English. Ukrainian and Russian books. There is a radio set on the shelf and. I must confess. I like to listen to the wireless in the evening. The dressing-table is next to the sofa. In the chest of drawers I keep clean linen and handkerchiefs and in the wardrobe I keep my clothes, which I hang on coat-hangers. I have two water-colours on the wall above the sofa. They are nice copies of my favourite paintings by Serov.

  My parents’ bedroom is the smallest room in our flat, but it is very cosy. There is a double bed with a bedside table, a bracket and my parents’ wardrobe in this room. There are also some beautiful houseplants on the windowsill.

  But the most popular and favourite place for all of us is the kitchen, as we spend most of our time there. We all are not big-eaters, but we use the kitchen as a place where we can have a chat about our problems and life. In the kitchen there are some chairs, a table, a cupboard, a sink with water taps, a fridge and a gas cooker. Of course, we usually have our meals there.

  We like our flat very much. It is also important that our house is rather close to the bus station and we can easily get to any place we like.
