Bittersweet Symphony

November 28, 2010


It's funny the way things work.  Friday evening I caught up with some friends from my past workplace - I don't miss the job, but I sure do miss my old "team".  One of the girls that I employed there (she and I go waaaay back, and I actually coached her in Under 12's more than 10 years ago) is looking to buy a house in our area.  We've sent her through a few pics and they are really keen to come and have a good look.
This is where the bittersweet thing comes in.  I REALLY love my house.  It's Loz's and my first house together and we've built a life together here.  Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited about the life we're leaving here for (and the wonderful people we've met in the process) but there's just a hint of sadness today as I begin to mentally separate from our "home".
Ironically, the butterfly on the wall was a gift from my old work people, lovingly selected by "Cat" our potential home buyer.  I would love to see this place go to someone who I know would love it right back.  So Cat, if you do end up buying our little house, I hope you'll be as happy in it as we have been over the past few years. xx

After 31 years in the one home, I have a lot of happy memories, afterall we were only in our early 20's when we moved here, no kids or pets.
In those 31 years, we have produced two children, had 3 cats (one of which we still have) and have entertained so many wonderful friends with dinner parties (in the 80's & 90's). We do not have an original component left in the house, every room has been renovated and redecorated. I look at this move as a beginning of a new stage of life, and I will not be sorry to move out of our house as it has now ceased to provide what we now need for the future.

I am personally getting more excited about moving as the weeks go by, and the new people we are continually meeting have been wonderful.

I may even revisit those dinner party days yet again - at least we can walk home!!

I had the same feelings leaving our last house but you are moving on to bigger and better things and no one can take your memories away.
