We have sold our house and in a few months will have absolutely nowhere to go! The logistical problem in 4 weeks time of what to do with our furniture (as we are in a fully furnished tenancy) is now hitting home. I am now computing how much space each large item we own takes up; anyone got any warm and dry space?
Actually, it's a weird feeling - our largest asset brought us a lot of security in years past and we are now aware that the feeling that our houses is "ours" is a lie.
Everything we have comes from his hand and we have felt the pain involved in that realisation coming to bear! But it feels very strangely liberating as well. We're not tied. However, we love our children so much and we are longing to provide them with some routine and normality with their wee special things around them and their pictures and posters on the wall.
Got to find somewhere to live and pack up and move (our old house) for the second time in six months pending the third pack up (from our temporary house!) and move......
Normal service on children/family issues will be resumed soon.
