We went and looked at
someone else’s our new house yesterday.
It’s a strange experience. We were walking through the house that we’ll call home in just a few days and I had to keep reminding myself that I wasn’t looking with interest at someone else’s home, I was looking at our home.
It was our final inspection. We had to make sure everything that should be working was working. The gas hot plates lit up, the oven heated, the water game gushing from every tap, the garden reticulation worked. Everything was great.
Wednesday is the day for the big move. Over the next couple of days we’ll be frantically packing and getting ready for the final push to get out of the place we’ve called home for over 16 years. This has been the home where we’ve experienced the highs and lows of life for so long. It’s the only home our children have ever known. In a few short days we’ll be saying good bye.
No doubt there’ll be a mix of emotions. We can’t wait to get settled in the home we chose over two and a half months ago but we know we’ll be leaving behind some amazing memories. We’ll say good bye to the familiar and start to explore our new environment. We’ll say farewell to friends who we won’t see quite so often. We’ll say good bye to some acquaintances who we’ll probably never see again.
Yesterday, while we were talking to the current owners of the house we’re buying, we were told of all the wonderful people in our new street. People they assure us we’ll get on with so very well.
This week promises to be a week of good byes and hellos … and we’re looking forward to everything that our move will bring.
