IF_Fleeting

When we moved into our current house, we were told we could rent for 5 years plus. We settled in, got some chickens, built a chicken house and a vege garden and a compost. I was loving the fact that I had a bit of country in the suburbs! I also had my very own art room. Unfortunately for everyone, the owners got divorced (after 30 years of marriage!!) and now we have to move after only one year. I am sad to leave my lovely house in the suburbs by the beach. It was "fleeting"...but worth it.

What a bummer Messyfish. You probably created the eden that one of the divorced parties wanted. Terrible for you to have to leave. I hope you find someplace of your very own soon.

Oh, so sorry you have to move. This unpleasant moment is fleeting too! A year from now it won't seem so sad.

Julie said...

I am so sorry, MF!!! That is really sad. I hope you find a place that is 10 times better!!!

One year of heaven. Too short. I hope your new home brings you a more lasting comfort and happiness.

Would it make you feel a little better if I said that I have something for you on my blog?

I hope that this unfortunate situation leads you to a home and garden that far exceeds the one you are leaving...maybe in a few months you'll say, "I am so glad we were forced to go!" good luck!
love your painting!!

What a bummer!!

The other day, I was notified by the real estate that this landlord was sending someone out to value the place...yikes! That could mean another move for us if he's thinking of selling??! That's the down-side of renting.....we've had to move out of two previous rental homes that we had a long term tenancy in because each landlord decided to sell. Ah well....life does go on.

I hope you enjoy the next place a whole lot more.
