Are you forgetful?

Didn't have shoeboxes when I were a lad. Them were fa toffs. We had to make do with scraps of cardboard. Eee bah goom, them were t'days.

Well we had it tough. We used to have to get up out of the shoebox at twelve o'clock at night, and LICK the road clean with our tongues. We had half a handful of freezing cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at the mill for fourpence every six years, and when we got home, our Dad would slice us in two with a bread knife.

Luxury, sheer bloody luxury. We had to wake up an hour before we went to sleep............

That's very good too!

Don't get me wrong, I am happy to have a shoebox that I don't clobber my head on the roof (am 6'5)

If you can recall... How big is your shoebox? I understand most places are small there and in china... Is this true?

I live in a house with 1250 square feet that is really small for here.. I would like to add on or rebuild from scratch  one day.... I have plenty of space to do that here! Property wise!

I forget sometimes that I don't have enough money to do that though! LOL..

My shoebox (on the 7th floor of an 8 storey filing cabinet) is about the size of the main dining area of a suburban house.

I have a main living area, a hallway with a small kitchenette, and a washing machine in a cupboard.  Then there is a shower room and the toilet.  That is it... oh and a balcony

Does it have on of those toilets with the sink on the top feeding the cistern. We had one of those in Japan but we also had a square, sit up, deep bath. I longed to lie down.
