Hello and welcome readers, Emily and William here sharing with you our dream homes.

This week it’s ladies first with my, Emily’s ideal home, a house in a small village with plenty of shops nearby to walk to.

Starting downstairs, I’d have a big posh kitchen with large work surfaces, a table with chairs and nice cushions.

There’d be a coffee machine, a fridge with water dispenser, lovely glasses, plain cups and plates. It’d be amazing to have a cook too, where I can help with the cooking if I want to. There’d also be a utility room where the washing machine and coats can go.

I see in my lounge big soft reclining arm chairs with cup holders, games consoles to share with my friends and a huge tv. The walls would be plain and the room brightened with turquoise accessories.

Going upstairs, I’d have three bedrooms, so friends and family can easily stay over. My bedroom would have a big bed with a fluffy duvet and a walk in wardrobe. I’d love someone in to help me decide what to wear. Like the lounge, I’d have plain walls with jazzy accessories. The bathroom enjoys a walk in shower and a bath which creates bubbles at the touch of a button! Naturally I’d have fluffy towels too!

I’d also love an office with an armchair to work from. I could write our Echo columns from there. There’d be good wifi speeds of course.

Outside I’d have a front and back garden where I’d grow vegetables and pretty flowers. There’d be relaxing chairs and benches to sit and enjoy it. The icing on the cake would be a swimming pool, heated even in winter, in an environmentally friendly way.

In the meantime, I love where I am but it’s good to dream!
