Rumour has it…

Ever since we moved to this house we have been subject to rumours. It goes with the territory to an extent. It also goes with living in such a small ‘community’. Usually the rumours are about the house. They are without exception never true. Over the last few months we’ve got sick of hearing them coming back to us;

“The house is for sale.” “The house is sold”. “Someone has bought a license for it”. The name of a particular person ” xxxxxx  has purchased it” (someone we know but haven’t even seen for about 8 years). “The bar is re-opening at the August Bank Holiday weekend”. There will even “be a marquee on the lawn”.

It’s all rubbish as usual. It’s upsetting to hear all of this stuff. Especially upsetting for my family. Also probably upsetting for those who are hoping these things will happen. It always amazes me that people are happy to spread the rumours but not ask us whether they are true. All they need to do is ask.

Anyway, I’m going to say this only once. In the more that 10 years that we have lived here, no one has ever even so much as made us a serious offer for the place. Not once. It isn’t and has never been on the market. Briefly, when we were closing the bar, I asked a group of locals who were disappointed to make us an offer. They never did. That doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t sell if anyone made us an offer because no one in their right minds would ever say never but no one ever has.

I just wanted to say that. I know the rumours won’t stop. This may even make them worse but, what the hell 🙂
