    Both Of Them

    I miss both of my old houses, but especially the one I grew up in from ages nine to eighteen. That house will always mean something special to me and I hope to at least visit it someday.

    I'm a 20 something year old uni graduate. Most of my life I've lived in close vicinity to a high school and my mum stayed at home and took me for walks. The old house was a big townhouse with three large bedrooms, two toilets, a winding staircase, a large living room and a medium...

    Two years ago, my husband and I sold our first little home. It has turned out to be a big mistake. Since we left, I've been in a big depression and experience a lot of anxiety. I think about my old house all the time and I wish we had never moved. I can look back and see all...

    for £34000 it was in a quiet street with lots of families living in it; we decided one random day to rip it apart including knocking all internal walls down and having the full place renovated floor to ceiling plastering, electrics, gas boiler, bathroom, kitchen (sometimes...

    I Want To Go Back!

    I lived in Westville...a small town where everyone knows everyone. I loved it there. I loved my house because I was about a block from the HS football field and I could sit on my front porch and listen to the games. I would walk over at half time and watch the end of it and get...

    It's so hard. I just want to walk the walls I

    walked in my whole life. Run home from school and see my mom. Go to my old room and play with my dolls or watch Kim possible on my small tv. A piece of me is in that house, I will miss it for eternity. Goodnight loves. Xoxo, Kay.

    Today I close the deal.

    My house is sold. It's just a house they say.. But is it really? My house provided shelter from the cold, heat, rain, snow and ice. My house was witness to my life ... Saw my tears, heard my laughter. Yes, maybe it is just a house, but within its walls there was life. Memories...

    I'm So Homesick

    I'm so homesick for my house and my life I'm not sure I'm ever going to get over it. I think the hardest part is that this was the fact that we were the cause of this move. We didn't have to, we chose to because we didn't feel quite right in the area we were living for almost 10...

    I moved into a house last year in a wonderful

    community. The house was brand new and we were the first people to live in it and it was really beautiful, it had dark brown banisters and balusters and the midrails were greyish. The doors were a dark brown colour too and it had a sliding door which lead into the backyard. It...
