No Going Back
It’s done. It’s finished. We completed the sale of our house in France today. It still feels unreal. Everything happened so quickly; we thought it would take years to find a buyer for our old house.
The relief of selling so easily and quickly is tinged with sadness. We enjoyed that house for almost twenty years and have so many happy memories. It was such a big adventure at the time. I cannot think about it right now otherwise I shall get too emotional.
It was the right time for us to make the move and since we left France our thoughts have been totally consumed by our new home. Days have whizzed by trying to organise things, find carpenters, plumbers etc. and working in the garden. When things quieten down I know I shall get sad and nostalgic about France. Today I’m not quite sure what I feel.
