She lived in a mango tree.
Her childhood dream had come true. She was the envy of the neighbourhood. She lived in a tree house, not any old tree house but a mango tree house. After all these years obtaining planning permission, architects drawings, false starts and many obligatory stops by builders who said it couldn't be done. Now she had proved to everybody that if you dream long enough and hard enough you can fulfil your dreams.
It was a shame about the insects that bothered her all day long.
It was a shame that her knees were becoming arthritic and the climb up the white wooden stairs bothered her more than she would admit to.
It was a shame that she became acrophobic.
It was a shame she was going to have to sell her beautiful dream home.
