Product description


As soon as I saw this journal I bought it, along with the companion journal Our Homes. My husband and I have owned eight houses in the course of our life together, and we probably haven't finished moving yet. We have built two and extensively renovated others. The idea that when we move on we can leave a record for the new owners of who was there before them and what we did and why, is a very evocative one. This is the link to the companion journal Our Homes: Our Homes: The Story Of --AEW - Amazon.com

About the Author

Simone has lived in 12 houses in her life and in each one, as she would redecorate and peel back the layers of paint and wallpaper, she would wonder about the families that had lived there. The idea for both journals crystallised when she and her husband were ripping up the bathroom floor of their current home, built in the 1930s, under which they found an old newspaper. It led her to write a small note for future owners—motivated at the time by being 8 ½ months pregnant and wanting to pass on how happy she was to be setting up home in this lovely house. Simone put the note under the new floor. She then began to think how nice it would be to have a more tangible link to people who had lived in the house before and this was the seed that led to her developing the idea for the two journals. Currently Simone is a Senior Business Analyst with American Express, lives in Sussex with her wonderful husband, their two lovely young sons and ‘Captain Barnacles’ the neurotic goldfish.
