The price was well within budget and the property was in a nice quiet neighbourhood.
No screaming kids, no blaring music, no barking dogs. Perfect.
They liked to look at potential new homes at different times of the day to get a feel of the area having made a fundamental mistake with their last property.
On the third and fourth visit, they took photographs as something had started to niggle.
It was indeed perfect.
Too perfect.
No curtains twitching, no activity, no deliveries, no mail man.
Nothing had changed. At all.
In five days.
It was like a ghost town.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    • We were once approached by the police as someone had seen our vehicle in one area too often and didn’t recognise it, so reported it. Although it was nice to know the local Neighbourhood Watch were vigilant (loads of kids in the road), we didn’t buy the property as we didn’t fit the average family or age group, plus the house was too big for us.
