|The Old Home
||[Dec. 22nd, 2015|05:20 pm]
When we first moved down here to look after my mother there was no question but that we'd retain the house in Oldham. It was our home- and sooner or later we'd be moving back. But as we stayed on and stayed on so our centre of gravity shifted- and Kent became our home and Oldham somewhere we visited. We knew several of the neighbours were keen to buy the old house- and so we offered it to the one we knew best.|
The sale was supposed to be quick, but...in the end it took a year and a half. We trusted Sam to follow through so we allowed her to start redecorating and then- when that was done- move a tenant in. Ailz's mother thought we were mad and Sam would shaft us- but it all worked out in the end.
I'd owned the house for a little over 29 years- and planned to die in it. Ah well...
