Lists – things that feel like home


Ah, well. This is an easy one, no? It’s a funny thing actually, trying to pin down what home feels like. Is it comforting and cozy? It is safe and sleepy? Is it a hide away or out in the bright city lights? I imagine it is all of those things and more and that each of us has our own special ideas and thoughts on what home is to us.

I think that in pondering what made it onto this list I have narrowed down that to me home feels like safety, comfort, tradition and familiarity.

Here’s the list:

  • having curly hair
  • holding Gav’s hand
  • the first cup of coffee
  • a hot water bottle
  • the softness of Buddy’s ears
  • thick socks
  • hearing the first swifts return from winter away
  • the smell of washing from my Mum’s
  • seeing the moon rise

What does home feel like to you?
