“Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.” ~ John Howard Payne
The deed is done and the keys handed over. The end of another era of our life together.
My little study at the top of the stairs, which used to be my favourite place to sit and blog,
today looked like this.
Our dining room which has been the scene of many a delicious meal and family gatherings,
is now just an empty shell.
Someone else will get to walk through the magic gate and down onto the beach.
Tonight, there’s absolutely nothing to bear witness that we were ever there; not even an eyelash in the bathroom. (I made quite sure of that.) I hope the new owner will be as happy there as we’ve been for the past twelve years.
Now for the next exciting chapter.
