This week has been an emotional one as we made the decision to put our house on the market and downsize. The children were upset to begin with but having spoken to them I think they understand our reasons for doing this and have accepted that it is what will happen. We now start the round of viewers coming in to see the house and eventually we will have to go out and view other houses. At this stage we don't know if we will go straight into buying again or whether we will rent for 6 months to give ourselves more time to see what's available. After the first viewing today it's brought back what it's like to show people round your home and I, for one, will be glad when the house is sold and we can move forward. Whatever happens, it will be the start of a new chapter in our lives. Iain and Louise have also moved into East Grinstead now and are renting a house near Mum and Dad. Faith will no longer be staying with us and the house will no doubt seem a little emptier without her as she has been with us for 4 months. At least the family is now in the same town which makes it easier for visiting. Another new start! I will try and write more regularly and keep you posted on how things are going. Take care xx
