It was a good neighbourhood. nicely kept verges and grassy banks, good neighbours all of a high standing in society. Rumour had it that the street had once been used in a Hollywood movie, not that any shots had actually been taken inside any of the properties.
A nice suburban area.
That was until you panned out and saw the big city in the background, gradually creeping forwards and developers eating up desirable real estate like locusts.
No wonder the rank was all up for sale. Residents were living on borrowed time, so best to get out while they still had a chance to salvage their lifestyle elsewhere.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour 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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
