My in laws moved into a retirement village today. There was a mixture of emotions that accompanied the move. There was sadness at leaving the house that they had lived in for so long and had been happy in. There was excitement at the prospect of the move and new place. There was stress trying to coordinate everything for the big move and finally there was exhaustion.
The new place is lovely, a lot smaller but brand new. A new house for a new start in life. I hope that they will be happy in the retirement village, the neighbours we met today all seemed lovely and very happy there, if this is an indication of what life in the retirement village will be like then it’s not so bad.
It has been a long day and my legs and back feel sore, and quite stiff, but I feel good knowing that my in laws are happy in their new place.
