For the past two weeks we have been moving house. Each day we have been packing boxes and taking them in the car to the new house. We have two guys and a van who are moving our big stuff. We have had two days with them.
Our old house is empty now. The rooms echo. We have our bed, a small table and two chairs and a settee. It is very sad.
We have lived here for thirty years and brought our kids up here.
On Monday we have the last big move day and we will be gone.
We will return to clean the empty house and touch up the paint to make it look nice for the next owners. We hope they will enjoy it as much as we did.
The new house is different. There will be new challenges, neighbours and new friends. It will be a new start. It is exciting.
I’ve just walked round the old house. It’s full of memories. It is three hundred years old. Soon we will be gone from here. We were just passing through.
