I don’t know why, but today I looked up on Streetview of Google Maps the house in Haaksbergen where I lived for so many years. When you look up something on Streetview of Google Maps you expect to see the current situation, but that is of course impossible.
But still it is very weird to see something there of which you know it is not there anymore. The picture of the house where I used the live on Google Maps is at least a year old. That means it still belonged to our family. It is so familiar… the curtains for the windows… the plants in the garden… the lamp next to the door…. even with a close look at the picture one could see the name plate next to the door that told that My parents were living here.
But as said, it is a view from the past… Earlier this year when my mother was taken for permanent in the caring-home we made the house empty… literally empty and that was already strange enough. It is all gone now. New people moved into the house and they decorated it all in their own way, not knowing of the past of the house.
Although explainable by logic, it is strange to see such a view from the past…

I have the same feeling when i see strange people living in the house i grew up. My parents moved be course they wanted to move. ( not like you’re mother) But still it is a strange feeling to see the house this way.
Did you know you had only half a streetlight in front of your door :D
I know you love your house in Heemskerk and that you are having a great time there. But I also know that at times you miss Haaksbergen, which is not strange at all. After all you lived there many years.
But you have always a place to sleep in Haaksbergen… in my bed
LOL. Marion, for once. Behave!
Marion behaving? No way…. and I hope she never will!!
Your bed, Marion? I think it is time to travel to Haaksbergen again :)
