When Dad married Mum they had their house in Booval built. Over the years the house has seen numerous extensions and upgrades, as well as being the place that all 3 of my sisters, my brother and I grew-up in and re-visited for many a family gathering.
I know that the place has seen its fair share of parties held by us “kids” whilst Mum and Dad have been away… and now they’re selling-up to move into a retirement estate.
The place they’re moving to is pretty impressive – it’s got a pool, BBQ area, a large community hall that seats something like 200 people with a big-screen TV, a lawn bowls green and a mini putt-putt course. If you didn’t have to be over 55 to move in there, I’d sign-up tomorrow!
