An opportunity has arisen for our little family to move into a much bigger house at a really great price. We would be stupid to say no, but we still have a few minor things to consider.
We love and hate our current house. It’s quite big but the layout is odd, meaning we have nowhere to keep anything so it’s full of clutter.
Also there’s a bit of damp (which doesn’t have an impact on our health at the moment, but still isn’t good), the fridge is iffy, the freezer in the garage (which we are too lazy to cope with) and the seals in most of the windows have gone.
The new house is amazing and gorgeous. It has five bedrooms and laminate flooring. It also has room for an indoor fridge-freezer and in integrated dishwasher (praise the lord! I’m sick of washing up!) but it doesn’t have our memories.
Our house now is our first home together. It was where we brought our son home to for the first time. It was where I was proposed to.
I know I’ll make new memories, wherever I live. I know this was never going to be our ‘forever’ house, I know I’m being silly.
Does anyone else get this? I can’t be the only sentimental one out there?
So now I just have to savour my last couple of months here, in our first ‘family’ home and the first place that has felt like a ‘real’ home since I left my parents’ house. I have 20 years of hoarding to sift through (which should keep me busy) and it truly is a wonderful opportunity to start a new chapter as a family (and perhaps have a few more babies!).
We need to move regardless of this offer, so why not make it a great move.
Goodbye house, I hope you provide the set for some nice memories for another family. We’ll miss you.
