Hello everyone, some of you will know that I moved up to Northumberland because of my late husband's promotion 20 years ago.
Our sheltie loves the beach, and I take him twice a day now it's summer. He'll be eleven in October. The beach is the only thing I like about living here, it's a ten minute drive from our house, no traffic and the beaches are generally empty.
My house is on the market and I've been looking at the south coast but am having trouble choosing 'where'.
I've been looking at Rightmove tonight and looked at houses in my home town - and one has come up in my old road in Whitton, Middlesex.
I feel swamped by happy memories of my dear late Mum, my childhood, school, my husband (we had to live with my Mum for a while). I'm going to go down for a sentimental journey and have a good look around - my friend said it has changed beyond recognition, she doesn't think I'd like it. I couldn't afford a house there, but could just afford a flat. I don't have any family left there, I only have one aunt left and she is on the Isle of Wight.
Have any other widows returned to their childhood home town and felt happier?
