There are cushions on your sofa​, on your bed, basically if there's a surface we've put cushions on it, because being comfy sat down is what life is all about now.

You own a spice rack, because you never know when that tin of beans might need some paprika. How many can you name?

MEDICINE

You have a medicine cabinet or box and tablets for ailments you've never even had or heard about! Safety first kids.

BLANKET

The blanket on your sofa. We no longer have to be told to nap, we love it and we do it in style, the comfiest style. And relax...

Cutlery

There's no random cutlery in your house, your cutlery came in a fancy box and now it all matches, unlike those student days!

Candles

Gone are the days of using your beach towel for everything, these days you have separate towels for your hands, face, body and hair. You'll probably find you fold them up carefully too now, rather than just leaving them in a pile!

Napkins

Gone are the kitchen roll days, now you always have napkins, and know how to fold them. You made a swan once and it was glorious...

Flowers

You might officially be an adult if you have plants, dotted around house, and they are all alive...for now.

Drinks glasses

You have different glasses for different drinks. Beer, wine, a cocktail and for when it gets really crazy on a night in...a shot glass.

Toolbox

You own a toolbox, because you're an adult now and you're the boss at fixing things. Now where is that screwdriver?

lawnmower

With being an adult comes the responsibility of looking after a garden if you have one. And you will own a lawnmower and make cutting the grass look cool.

IKEA

You own at least one piece of furniture from Ikea and often spend the day there (mainly because you can't find your way out).

Art

You have a piece of art on your wall, you have no idea who the artist is, but just owning it proves you're cultured right?

Wine

There is always wine, either in a rack, the fridge or even better your glass! But remember, always drink responsibly!

How many of these are true of you?
