Home is where the heart is right?
This is where I moved to at the young
age of 22, newly married, with the
thought of living here forever.
This building is over 300 years
old, it has so much character.
Wet rot, dry rot, walls that
aren't straight, decorating
can and has been a nightmare
but that's old properties for
you. My hubby has lived here
for 44 years.. It's going to be
a heart wrenching experience
when we eventually have to move. Don't they say that moving house and divorce
are the two elements that really test your heart strings and nervous system?
I've haven't moved anywhere since getting married, this has been my home
since that special day 29 years ago come September 3rd 1983. I am soon to
re live that when we have to sell half our furniture and down size to our
soon to be new home/rented accommodation. I shall miss the black n white
solid oak beams that support this house, they are a pain to paint... where
we are moving to has very little garden... but it is right next door to a wooded
area. Peace and tranquility is what I'm looking forward to. The fact that the
pain in the arse of a so called neighbour we have in this house who finds it
nothing out of the ordinary to start up his tractor and work at strange hours
of the night... I will not miss him at all. We might be lucky enough to have
deer on our back garden when we move. Also I have to talk to my daughter
at some point/soon, very soon as she is under the assumption that
she is moving in with us......'NOT and NEVER going to HAPPEN!' My very
best of friends has offered to rent her spare room out to her. Put it this way,
that is her only option, she's not in a position to turn it down. So I'm in a
better frame of mind now. My hubby is a lot happier, well we've gone from
his boss tellin him he's got to retire and the worry of losing the roof over
our heads. I think we shall have a big furniture sale, make a visit to the
antique auction rooms and do some car boots + hire a skip. Life's never
what you expect is it. Oh yeah, I also have to sell my piano as we can't
find space for it, I've had it since I was 9. That I will need tissues for!
