#BEDN 12 - Hometown

As we all do, I have a hometown in the literal definition of the term, but even though we haven't moved towns that many times, I don't think I've ever really felt 'at home' anywhere.

I moved from Cambridgeshire to rural Cumbria aged 8, and then all over Western Europe at university, and now I live in London for work and it's also where T is too. My parents sold their Cumbrian house just over a year ago which is the place I lived the longest, but I never did get on so well with the North. I think probably my other issue with 'home' is that I'm mostly of the 'a house is a box that you put your stuff in' school of thought, so I'm never especially attached to spaces or buildings either.

For me, home is what you make it.

Home is where my bike is....

Should I be worries about what T keeps by the bed?!

Home is where T makes a mess

I totally agree that home can be what you make of it. I have swung between feeling at home in places and the opposite, and it all seems to depend on who and what you have around you.

You've really hit the nail on the head here - home is absolutely where you feel at 'home'. Your little list was so heartwarming and perfect - and I'm pretty jealous of that awesome looking bacon sandwich! ;)
