Home Sweet Home
by Nina Yakimiuk
Sold my huge house and moved only 10 minutes away! What I didn't want is to move far away from my friends. Since I live alone with my daughter away in Holland and my relatives in the USA...well having friends close by is very important. They were like family when I lost my husband and still are. The house is small but easy to take care of....
One of my friends has 8 grandchildren which welcome me when I come to visit. Edward (the youngest son)'s wife has just had a baby boy. Hurray! So I haven't moved too far from them.
As for the future if I need to I can move to one of those "assisted living" co-operatives near me.
I guess I've also become a Londoner since I enjoy the variety of people plus such a vibrant city here.
There is nothing like home...in my heart I think of New Jersey and remember the farm we had. However, for the moment it's nice to be on a leafy road in South London.
