The Elms


This is where my mum and dad live. It is not a good photo, I don't have the skills (or the super duper camera) of Picperfic. This bungalow is beautiful and the garden is stunning - over an acre of land. It's in a quiet, pretty village in Norfolk and is now up for sale. Anybody out there want to buy it? It would be good if you want to 'Escape to the Country'.
There are a lot of memories at this house. I got married from here, the drive was a mass of pale purple petunias - I walked to the church with my dad. When our dog died, he was laid to rest in the back garden, a blue flowering bush planted on top which will always be known as 'Fennel's Bush'. Both my children were Baptised in the local church. I've helped mum and dad do loads of coffee mornings, Christmas Fairs and Flower Festivals. My Grandma stayed here (she never did teach me to crochet) so did my Auntie Joan (knitter extraordinaire) - both sadly no longer with us.
We shall all miss the house and village, but it's now time to move on to somewhere a bit smaller. If only someone would buy it! It's only been on the market for a week, but impatience runs in the family!

Looks like a beautiful home with lots of wonderful memories - won't be long before it is snapped up I'm sure!

We'll take it!
(Hmmm....before drafting the sales contract, better let me check to see if Sean minds if his drive to work gets a bit longer.)
