Hiya to everyone
Well now I’m coming to a BIG decision. Some of you may know I’m upping sticks from Yorkshire to move back to the Wirral - plenty of reasons including being with family, a flatter area, not being house bound - yippee! The Yorkshire house is now sold.
I am always trying to stay one step (or push) ahead of this ‘tricky’ MS thing. I have saved, and saved all of my now ‘defunct’ working life and now have a choice.
a) To use all my savings and buy a bungalow that will need updating over the years but should be settled for life?
b) Straight swap and get a house - it won’t use my savings and I can update and adjust it. Stairlift, decorating, ramps etc.
I’m a part time ‘wheels’ user and cannot go out by myself. I’m still ‘youngish’ - very early 40’s! I’m a bit of a ‘furniture hugger’ indoors - for balance. I know I have and will carry on deteriorating if I look back over the year(s) and use that as a gauge.
It is difficult to let you know my full personal circumstances. But you, my friends, at least know about this condition.
So what would you do? A or B? Deal or no Deal?
UPDATE FOR EVERYONE BELOW:
I have got a report back from my parents that the bungalow needed a lot of work - too much to even move! So I have bit the bullet and my house is sold at £83k and I have my offer on the new house at £82k accepted! It is worth so much more as well. I will look at getting my downstairs toilet. The saving are now intact and will help to adapt and can be used for the future. I’m soooooooooooooo excited. I will be able to get outside and see people. Some of my old life (from a different time) will be back!
What a year!
