And tell your children about it!
I grew up in a house that was built by my three greats grandfather. It was not until I left home that I realised that other people moved house! I wish that people would tell the story of their time in their house, and leave it for the next inhabitants. It would be so interesting to find and add to the tale. Have you read HOME: The Story of Everyone Who Ever Lived in Our House by Julie Myerson? She found out the stories of everyone who lived in her house.
