it's just a dozen steps down from / it's the house with the red front door / small front garden / cat in the window / metal gate.
Every time I hear the phrase 'can't miss it' when given directions to a house on a suburban street my heart sinks.
Whose dozen steps? a giant's , a midget's ? Half the front doors in the street are red, most of them have a small front garden. I count at least four metal gates and the only cats I can see are the ones stalking the road for sparrows.
Please, could I have a flag flying or a loudhailer calling me? It would save me first driving up and down your street, then doing the same on foot, having had to park the car miles away.
