“Home is where the heart is.”

“There’s no place like home.”

“Home Sweet Home.”

“Home interprets Heaven. Home is Heaven for beginners.”


I was an Army brat.  From the day I was born until my mid teens I never stayed in a house for more than 2 years.  I absolutely loved moving house.  I’d get a new bedroom to decorate, new places to explore and lots of new friends.  When I was 11 I went to boarding school.  The moving around had become a problem for mine and my brothers education.  My dad got posted 3 months before my brother was due to sit his GCSE’s.  I was a fair bit more “settled” but still loved the idea of moving house.  In reality it was pretty poop.  I no longer had the opportunities to make friends without totally putting myself out there by approaching groups of pre-teens in the street.  For my school holiday’s I spent most them alone.

Throughout all of this we always visited this house.

My grandma bought it when my big brother was a baby so it was always the place that we went back to.  Our stability.  When I was about 14 my parents bought it off of her and it became our home.

Even now that I have moved out and we live in our own house, this will always be my home.
