    Oh £100 from ikea would be such a help for a leafy bohemian like me.

    So maybe if I bought some boxes and shelves
    I would make his life less of a living hell
    From my shoes and to my mags
    I could tidy it all up in some cute floral bags
    And maybe seeing the floor
    Would make him like me more
    And we could live in harmony together
    And enjoy a wee nighttime blether
    And courtesy of
    Where you should definitely log on
    I could win those vouchers worth £100
    And we he would think I’m really sound!

    I guess the bohemian part is right! :-P

  92. G says:

  101. Eve Nicol says:

    Suited & Booted in Glasgow!
    Work is just as important to you as play and there’s nothing wrong with that. You need to be in an area with good connections to the city centre to make sure you get in on time each morning. You also prefer areas with young professionals, to avoid midweek parties as they are the enemy of your alarm clock. That doesn’t mean it’s early to bed every night though, having a nice bar/restaurant in the area can take the edge off a tough day at the office. A nice glass of wine and local amenities nearby make for a happy home life for you. I would spend the vouchers on big pillows to sit on for my veranda and lots more big candles for my house, also possibly a wee treat or two for my little kitty.

  102. Alice McCambridge says:

    Leafy bohemian in Shawlands……correct!!!
    I would look to spend the £100 on curtains and cushions to make my house feel more homely

    Would love to win vouchers for our new house! Need New wardrobes for the bedrooms :)

    I got leafy bohemian in Glasgow! I’ve not lived there before, but I’m hoping to move there and find a nice place to rent when I start working as a junior doctor. Having a cosy flat that I could really make my own is a dream! I would probably use the Ikea voucher for some practical purchases, like a desk and shelves, but hopefully I would have enough left over to buy a few more plants (can you ever have enough?)

  117. Poppy says:

    Leafy bohemia
    Preferably somewhere in the mountains with as little human interaction as possible…?! Wasn’t sure that was an option on this quiz though. I’d need to purchase some nice frames for my non descript walls
