Momentarily up north

Fear not, I'm still alive! As I said some posts ago, I'm back home in the north. I don't think I ever told you, mainly because I wanted it all do be finished business before I told the world my news - but a few months back I actually sold my house. If you've been a regular reader for a few years, you've surely read about my house back in Steigen several times before, and now it's no longer my house. It wasn't easy selling the house. Mainly because I loved that house, and many, many hours of work and love have been put into it since I bought it in 2000 - but also because it's hard to find buyers up here. I wasn't planning on giving my house away for free, mind you! Earlier this year I found my buyer, and decided to let it go. Yes, it was a difficult decision, but the thought of being able to pay off the debt and not having minor heart attacks due to the arrival of unexpected bills made it a little easier, and I'm very happy that the new owner is someone who loves the house as much as I did - and still do. Unfortunately there was no money left when I had paid my debt, but I feel a lot lighter at heart now that I'm not paying thousands of NOK on a house I'm not actually living in - and I'm not moving back to Steigen anytime soon, as far as I'm concerned. Even though my heart this resides here in the northern part of Norway, I still don't think I have a future here as long as I'm in a wheelchair - and that's something that won't change.

So, that's part of the reason why we're back up north - the other part is of course visiting my parents, and their dogs. It's a long drive, so unfortunately it doesn't happen too often. Now we've gone through a heap of boxes filled to the rim with.. crap. A lot of crap. Oh well, it had do be done, and I have found a few items worth keeping. Like my "Magic: The Gathering" cards! We still have a lot of work left, and Øyvind has gone with my dad to clear out the rest of the garage. I don't really know how long we're staying here, but we'll be back home once we're done sorting through these boxes. Theo seems to be enjoying himself together with Fenris, Tico and Ozzy - and he has even been swimming in the Fjord, although I don't think he planned for it to happen. Yep. He's a little dare-devil that one.

Apart from this, I've got nothing new or exciting to gossip about. Wink

  1. Grattis med hussalg Grin En mindre ting å bekymre seg for.

  2. Linda:
    Hjertelig takk! Absolutt en bekymring mindre, men det er fortsatt litt sårt – av mangel på bedre ord. Kjipt når man har lagt ned mange, mange timer arbeid og ikke minst penger i å få det som man vil ha det. Ny eier er dog veldig fornøyd med huset, og kaller det et smykkeskrin – så da vet jeg iallfall at det er i gode hender. Smile

  3. Ja huset blir sikkert like elsket av ny eier som det er av deg Smile

    Det blir sikkert litt sårt den dagen vi skal flytte fra huset vi bor i nå siden vi har lagt inn ganske mye arbeid i å pusse det opp, så jeg tror jeg skjønner følelsen.

  4. Håper dere koser dere litt i alle fall. Klemmer fra lillesøs i sør. Smile

  5. Linda:
    Jeg håper iallfall det. Det er en enorm trøst å vite at ny eier setter pris på at det er et over hundre år gammelt hus, istedet for å planlegge full fornyelse av det. Jeg tror huset er i gode hender, og det gjør det lettere for meg å slippe taket. Smile Og ja, det er faktisk litt ekstra vanskelig siden jeg vet at pappa har (pardon my French) jobba ræva av seg for å lage/gjøre alt som jeg helst ville ha det – så følelsen dukker nok opp hos dere også, om den dagen skulle komme.
