It's been a hectic and chaotic few weeks with winter, in respiratory disease management, our busy period.
Added to this there have been a myriad of project deadlines, business case completions, service spec reviews, performance, information governance, ACP /STP.. TLA (Three Letter Abreviations) ... And we are putting our house on the market.
The latter is what I wanted to share with you.
I love my house, its a fair size, 5 double bedrooms, a massive living room, separate massive dining room, big conservatory, 2 bathrooms and a modern, open plan kitchen that you can swing several cats in... You are getting the idea it is Roomy?
Outside there is room to park 3 cars and the back garden is massive, private, not overlooked and warm.
So why move?
Well it's too big!!
We have brought our family up here and seen our children marry, live with us and then move on. Now it's just Julie and I in this BIG house.
We have invested a lot of money and time but most of all, love, into our house.
It is why it's so. Hard to find something that will ever replace this homely space.
There is something about our home that makes me want to stay and not go. The space, light, warmth and physicality added to the memories make it difficult to part. This house has been an important part of our family. We have shared many good times, some challenging ones too, but the good far outweigh the not so good... And none were ever bad!
As we search, I compare against what we have and what we would be sacrificing for the sake of downsizing...
The search continues...
