SimonB's Bumper Brickset Bonus Ball - 15 October

TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 1,712
Listen up, boys and girls and anyone not bound by rigid gender constraints, it's bonus ball draw time.

You all know the deal, first 59 people to answer this question get their names in my hat for a chance of a prize.  This week we are going Kai crazy with his drifter and mini dragon up for grabs.

Question time: how many places have you lived?

For me, seven residences spread 1 in Welwyn Garden City, 3 while at college in Derby and 3 in Felixstowe... 

Good luck with the balls!

    Discounting boarding school and student halls - I've lived in nine different houses, as diverse as Hampshire, Cornwall, Leeds, Manchester and St Albans!

    3 before I was in college. Then maybe 7 or 8 while in college and immediately after. When I got my real job, I moved to a different state and have been in 3 places here.

    Well, I'd lived in 18 places by the time I was 20, add 5 more and the total will be revealed.

    1 as a child (yes, the same house from birth to age 18!)

    Then 5 as a student.

    Then 8 (spread over 4 countries) of which 4 were rented and 4 were owned.

    10 here. 5 of them were within the space of a couple of years, so I decided to buy a house to put a stop to that nonsense.

    1 country, 4 different states, 7 different towns/cities, 10 different addresses. I think I finally found the perfect town, now I just need the right house.

    Edit: I forgot about college, 2 different addresses there, but it was in a town in my list above.

    18. Although all but the first one we're within 90 miles of each other. 

    Oh, and that's homes. Not cities. I've only lived in 3 cities. 
  • SithLord196SithLord196 Member Posts: 1,161
    I think 6 all within the same county.
    10 - 5 in the first 41 years of my life - 5 in the last 2...who said divorce doesn't expand your horizons!

    Three in my childhood, two in adulthood.

    Two-and-a-half towns - that is, one's a townland, and they're hard to classify to anyone unfamiliar with the system...

    11. All in Minnesota. After moving from my parents house at 18 I lived in a series of low rent apartments and then a dump of a starter home. But all the years of saving, combined with finally being able to sell our s#*!house for a nice profit, has put us in home to be proud of. A home with ample space for my Lego hobby.
  • Renegade007cjhRenegade007cjh Essex, UKMember Posts: 694

    Oh my childhood home, several dormitories on college campus, an apartment, and now my home.  I'd say probably a total of 7 or so places.
  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    Let me see: about 10, I think.  2 growing up, 6 at college, 5 in the San Jose area, and temp housing, two, locally, now my current home.  So, 16, actually. Wow, hadn't thought about it in those terms in quite some time.  Thanks for the trip down memory lane...

    I've lived at 5 different addresses - all in the same town. I ended up buying my grandparents house, where they lived for over 50 years. I now live 100 yards from the house I grew up in.
  • goshe7goshe7 Columbus, Ohio, USAMember Posts: 516
    Five addresses, four in the same city.  (Not counting multiple university addresses).
  • tcctcc Washington, DCMember Posts: 73
    Apparently a lot: 21 at last count and getting ready to move again. Moving sucks...
