First things first, which of the following most closely resembles your kitchen?
Where do you keep your ironing board?
In a storage cupboard.
I usually just shove it behind a door somewhere and pray it doesn't come crashing down.

Please, I don't own an ironing board.
Your friends are coming over for dinner -- do you have enough chairs?
Eh, we should just about be covered. I hope. *sweats a bit*

No, but it's okay -- I'll stand.
Are there any bedrooms in your flat without windows?
What kind of heating do you have in your flat?
Central heating.
Storage heating.

A plug-in electric heater that smells like burnt toast :(
Does your flat have a black leather couch?
You betcha!
Eh, no.
Be honest - does your flat have a distinctive smell?
Yes and I am am blaming the previous owners.
There's a faint odour, but nothing that all houses don't have.

Where do you throw your rubbish?
Bin bag in the middle of the floor.
I separate my rubbish in my fancy recycling bin, thanks very much.

A bin I bought for €4.50
Finally, does your flat contain any mysterious doors?
...I don't think so.
Yes, there is a door that we thought led to a cupboard, but actually leads into the garden.

Yes, but I haven't opened it.
