Greetings lovely friends & readers
This post is written mainly as a record for myself, my sons & grandsons ... & I acknowledge it may be of no interest to anyone else. But I wanted to keep a record of clearing out my family home, as I have a tendency to forget 😉
|Winter Pansies planted in my old trike just yesterday 🖤|
I was down at Mum's house for 2 weeks emptying it out & cleaning it ready for settlement on March 10th. The new Owner was purchasing it as a rental property & I wanted it presented as "move in ready". I first came to live at No 44 when I was aged 1 so I had 61 years of memories tied up in the house & large section. I expected to feel all sorts of emotions the day I drove away for the final time but I did not feel one iota of sadness whatsoever. Which surprised me to be honest. I felt incredible sadness for my Mum who was lying in bed in a Resthome, just 6 doors away from the house she had lived in for the bulk of her 93 years of life. The morning of settlement I had walked up to visit Mum as I did twice daily, & she had been very frail & incoherant. So I felt a deep sadness over my Mum but certainly not over leaving the property.
