Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] essayel, and nicely appropriate as our census form dropped through the letterbox today :-)

In 2011 I live in a 3-bedroom semi, built in the 1950s but looks like it was built in the 1920s or 1930s, in a Welsh village so far in the north of Powys it's almost in Gwynedd. I own this house with my husband (well, except the portion we still owe to the bank...).

In 2001 I was in my final year at the University of Sheffield, so although my 'official' address (as per my bank account etc.) was still my parents' house in Wales, I was living in a rented house in Sheffield which I shared with two blokes, one of whom I'd been an item with the previous year. It was a typical Sheffield terraced house, I had the attic room and I loved it and never wanted to leave...

In 1991 I was living with my parents and two sisters in North Wales, in a late 1960s house in a village between Mold & Wrexham.

In 1991 I was living in a 1970s house near Liverpool with my parents and older sister.


...which rather amusingly misses out the 7.5 years I lived in Oxfordshire between University and buying this house. If someone in the future wanted to find out about me, they'd have to trace things like council tax and employment records because even my marriage certificate (slap bang in the middle of that period) doesn't say I lived there, due to the loopholes you have to jump through to get married in the church you attended as a child rather than one in the parish you currently live in...
