Happy to be Home

Home is where the heart is. That’s what they say anyway.

For the majority, this statement is applicable… Those people are the lucky ones, I am a lucky one.

I might get bored quickly, the family might begin to annoy me and I might want to kill my useless brother at times. But I’m one of the lucky ones; there’s a place I can call home, a safe haven for the times when I need protecting and unlimited supplies of comforting food!

Weeks of routine can force us to take home for granted, though time spent away leads us to appreciate the simple things; a hot shower, a hug from mummy or daddy, the smelly yet adorable dog, even your single bed.

Christmas is a time when these simple things develop into pleasures. Everyone is smiling as gifts are shared and Mariah plays in the background. Home at Christmas is the best time. This is my Christmas time:

My arrival home – I got to put the angel on the tree!
