I never felt like I had a tie to my childhood home, and this article made me feel a bit puzzled why I would.
But then I looked up the house on Zoopla, there are recent photos of the house, the same windows in the front, and most importantly of all, the garden is in exactly the same state it was in when my dad did it all – his rockery, the steps, the space where a large garage was… all those little bits of his… still there.
Now I want to buy the house and live there forever, happy in my old memories.
Obviously, that’s not going to happen, but y’know. I get the article now.
