On selling up

Mixed feelings today as it's the 19th anniversary of Mum's death and Billy (my Brother) & I have instructed an estate agent to put the house on the market. I'm really looking forward to moving in with Catherine over in Kinross-shire but am naturally saddened at the end of an era in Irvine and in Herbertson Crescent especially. Our family are the only people who have ever occupied the house since it's construction in 1957; I sleep in the room in which I was born (lived in the house 1961-1980 & 1999-date); Mum died at home; many, happy memories and a few sad ones and a real, total feeling of breaking from my roots.

Tandem Bona Causa Triumphat as my town & school motto says.
