It’s not long now until we move into our new house. We’ve had the keys for a few weeks, but we’ve put the move off in favour of getting a bit of work done ready to move in and make the house our home.
But with all this work going on it’s got me thinking. Mainly about security.
While the house will hopefully transform into the home of our dreams (for the next few years) I want to make sure everything in it is protected and kept safe.
After all our homes become our bubbles. A little hub of security and safety.
The house we’re moving to is an upside down town house, it suits us to a tee. It’s quirky and spacious enough for what we need.
But with the various different floors there does come that certain amount of anxiety when I know I’ll be sleeping in the bed alone. The only ‘adult’ in the house.
And statistically, burglary risk is higher for single adults with children at 6.8%, according to the British Crime Survey.
My other half works in film and his hours can be all night or he can frequently be away.
And I’ll admit it. I’m a wimp.
Sleeping with an object to scare an intruder by my side isn’t the wisest idea with a toddler that loves to sneak into the bed, so I’ve been looking into home security systems.
