I am missing ...

... my old home today! As the weather warms up memories of my garden come flooding back and I am reminded of my home that I loved, my home that now belongs to someone else.

I will miss the Bankshire rose bush that started budding at this time of the year – the beautiful yellow and white flowers, that made SUCH a mess when they fell off! That reminded me of my Mum and my grandmother. I will miss the sweet smell of Jasmine, that heady, intoxicating smell indicating the arrival of spring! I will miss my "fairy garden" and remember how my niece was CONVINCED that real fairies lived there.

I have moved on and I am happy. It's time to build new memories and a new home, remembering that "a home is a place where love resides, memories are created, friends belong and laughter never ends." Although I miss my old home, it's no longer that – to me – now it's just a house!

You know what you want so why not create it around your house. How about a new fairy garden?

It is just a house and you can create new memories in your new home. Never forget that lovely lady!

It must be so hard leaving your home behind. {{hugs}}
