"I expect my life to change in the next six months because I am planning to buy furniture. My first priority will be to buy a cupboard. I have lost many utensils because I don't have proper storage facility so I end up breaking some of them, others get lost and a few that remain still get dirty because I normally keep them in the basin or a sack. I will have my plates safe when the dream of buying a cupboard actualizes hence saving on extra cost of replacing the broken ones most of the time."
