Home Sweet Home: My Parents' New Pad

The main reason that I went home to Germany ten days ago was to say goodbye to the house I grew up in. My Mama & Papa have sold up and will be moving in April. Their new dwelling is only 3 kilometres away from my childhood home, and after thorough inspection I fully approve, which made the thought of sleeping under the familiar old roof for the final time slightly less sad. 

The parents bought a beautiful 1960s bungalow, with a sunny conservatory, cozy garden, fantastic retro build-in furniture, a coal-fuelled oven in the guest room, and full of artefacts that the previous owners left behind. They are currently replacing the kitchen and old bathroom suite and are doing the whole place up to their taste. They are visibly happy to have found this gem and looking forward to spent their retirement there. I am really happy for them! I cannot wait to go back for the house warming to see what their new home looks like finished. For now, let me take you on a tour of the renovations in progress...
