Someone recently mentioned this , and so I looked up my childhood home!
Instead of being No2.......... Road, it is now No20.
The gates have gone, and the large green space in front, where all the children from the road would gather, now looks so much smaller, and has a path running through the middle.
The old cottages that used to abut our side garden have gone and there are lots of new/er houses.
I don't think I should have looked.
We left that area when we married 58 years ago, so not really surprising.
On looking at our first home, a bungalow, that has been extended, but DH's old home looks much the same.
Son's fiancee hates us - we're going to family therapy
My dilemma is that she's a slob - how to discuss with her?
A level of gravitas and decorum has been lost - don't think she's a naive player
