My mom is selling her house, and it came out on the Swedish site the other day. It feels strange seeing it up there among other houses for sale, since this one is ours. I haven’t lived there for ages, but it’s still “our” house. We moved in 1988, and have spent practically every Christmas there since. This year we may not do so (depends on when it gets sold), and next year we definitely won’t.
It’s a strange feeling knowing that the house where my brothers and sister grew up is about to no longer be in the family. I always sort of wanted to buy it myself eventually, but in my current situation there is no way I could do so. Maybe if I’m lucky by the time I’m in a better situation the new owners want to sell. But then again, if they end up as fond of the house as we have been, maybe they’ll stay 24 years too?
