‘There Are Nega­tives And There Are Pos­i­tives’

Amy Ladley, 23, a self-em­ployed dance teacher from Manch­ester, re­veals what it’s been like to move back home

Look (UK) - - LIFE -

‘My boyfriend Ste and i have been liv­ing at my par­ents’ house while we’re sav­ing up. We’ve con­verted the top floor into a bed­room/liv­ing area and al­though we do con­trib­ute a small amount for bills and food, my par­ents don’t ask for more, so we can put away around £1,000 per month.

‘We’re lucky, but get­ting used to be­ing back at home was still quite stress­ful. you def­i­nitely feel as though you have less in­de­pen­dence, al­though be­ing able to en­joy Mum’s cooking is a bonus for us both.

‘Of course, pri­vacy does come into it and the lack of free­dom can be tricky – we can never just stroll around in min­i­mal cloth­ing and we al­ways have to be con­sid­er­ate about noise (if you know what i mean!). But it’ll all be worth it when we have our own place.’
