So, because we have got a bit older, according to them, we are supposed to move out of our homes we have raised our families in to allow young families to buy our three bedroom houses (which they wouldn't be able to afford anyway!)
We are supposed to find ourselves a tiny little house or, even better, I've no doubt, a flat, and cut our family off from us when it comes to overnight visiting. Oh! I tell a lie there; they allow us one spare bedroom.
And what do we do at Christmas and other family occasions when all the kids want to come home, bringing (hopefully) grandchildren with them?
And what about our grownup children who, still unmarried themselves, like to come home at weekends or other "leave" times to see us and meet up with their friends in the hometown area?
And what happens when we are finally isolated from our family because of the difficulties of lack of accommodation for them, and we become lonely and, perhaps, feel uncared for?
Have these sodding people really thought this through?
In my own case, I helped to build this house when DH and I started out. I l have raised my family here. I do not want to leave it.
So, sorry "Charity" or whatever you are, we're staying put till they carry us out.
