Since moving into my little house on my little estate 10-years ago, there has been a trend towards doing away with the covered porch in order to extend the hallway to the front door, thus making one’s home appear bigger. Only I resisted, and it now appears, to my detriment! Now that most people shop online, I am forever receiving packages/crates small and large on behalf of neighbours who are never in to receive their purchases! Why only yesterday I signed for a crate that was so big, I couldn’t exit my front door until my neighbour returned from work! Err, I think I’ll do away with my porch too!
