Friday My Town Shoot Out - Summer vacations
“How do you spend your vacation?”
- a period in which a break is taken from work or studies for rest, travel, or recreation
- the act of departing from or abandoning property, etc
This summer I’m going for the second definition…
The House (my parents’ old place) has at last been emptied – or nearly. We finally hired someone a couple of months ago to do the rest of the job.
My dad’s former study three years ago:
Last week, all that remained in that room was:
And by now, those pieces of heavy furniture should be gone also, and the rest of the house be empty too; apart from a few basic necessities that we decided must remain until the place is finally sold. A kitchen table with two chairs, a bed, a couple of sunchairs, and a few kitchen utensils – that sort of thing. Just enough for my brother and his dog to “camp” there a few nights (they’ll be coming down next week), and for me to go out there for the day now and then, while we get “the rest” organised – like contact with cleaners, estate agent, prospective buyers, various necessary inspections etc. How long it will all take remains to be seen. Wish us luck!
