Struggling
« on: April 29, 2018, 12:04:53 AM »
 :cray:
Eight weeks since I lost my lovely mum, harder now Iím getting practical matters sorted, Iím selling the family home and moving closer to work as it just makes more sense, I hope mum would have understood this, just miss her and dad( he died in 2004) so much and feeling my way, not always sure Iím doing the right thing so instinct is proving to be a stronger force at the moment. Thankfully, mum and dad left me financially very comfortable so one less worry. Just feel very little joy in life right now. However, Iíve found a nice little house ten minutes from work ( I donít drive so my current commute is 1.5 hour bus journey each way three times a week), ten minutes walk away will make such a difference. It backs onto a nature reserve and it is a lovely house, Iím very happy with the decision to move, Iím ready to move forward

Hi Kes. I just wanted to wish you well with your house move, I hope you will find it will make your life much easier without your long commute. Iím sure your mum would understand why you need to do this and you will be able to keep anything thatís important to you to remind you of all the happy times you had together.
This too shall pass.

Hi Kes -i had to move after losing my husband for financial reasons and as i had no choice but to move it made sense to be nearer work.I just wanted to let you know really, i dont think we leave them behind which is what we dread, but take them with us in a sense.Your new house sounds lovely. :hug:

Update

Moved into my new home on 28th June, itís a lovely little house, the same one I posted about and it needs very little doing to it, I had a new loft hatch and ladder installed and the latch on the side gate fixed but thatís about it, just surrounded by boxes of stuff at the moment, Iíve got Cornwall hospice care (charity shop) coming to take loads of stuff away on Tuesday next week so hopefully I can get rid of most of the boxes downstairs!! Then I can start the spare room ( mine is done already) . Itís so convenient being near everything, ten minutes walk to work ( instead of 2 hours commute on bus each way!!😱😱) and loads of buses, every ten minutes into town. My house backs onto a nature reserve, itís so quiet , away from main road and traffic! Bliss !! Iíve ha couple of moments obviously where I became all nostalgic for the old house but I know Iíve made the best decision for me, Iím very happy in my new home 🏠❤️❤️

That sounds really lovely - especially the reduced commute! Too much time is wasted on commuting!  :hearts: xx
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. 
Hold on in there xx

 :cray:Iíve also saved a fair bit of money as Iíve moved down two council tax brands AND I donít have the bus fares to find, hopefully my bills will be lower as well, as itís a much smaller property to heat etc,
