Thankful Thursdays - Home

Hello Lovelies,

I hope that you're all well! I know that I am, I've had a long, hard day and now I'm so glad to be sat in bed with my dog curled up next to me...


That brings me nicely onto this week's thankful thursday (clever that!) which is, my home. I don't live in a huge period property in rolling hills or in a snazzy townhouse in the centre of some fast paced city but it's mine and I lurrrve it.


It's only a little house in the middle of the village that I grew up in, but it's extremely old and thus, quirky, and I think that it's the best place in the world. 


I know that I am very, very lucky to have my own home, and to share it with someone I love, at the tender age of 20, and I have to remind myself sometimes that I do work hard to pay for it and I, just like anybody, deserve it. 


I didn't move home until I was 19 years old and it came as a huge shock to me when I had to leave my childhood home, I don't think I'll ever forget that house (possibly because it's 100 yards down the road?) but I no longer wish that I still lived there. 


We lived in a new build house in a very big village half an hour away from where we are now for 6 months last year, and it was awful. There was nothing wrong with the house, or the area, but it was never home. I've been pretty ill in this house and it's made me feel safe and comforted, whereas I never felt that in the new build. I think I'm just meant to live in old, wonky houses!


I don't want this to come across as a huge gloat about my wonderful house, because it's nothing special, it's attached to our village pub, which obviously played no influence on Lee's decision to move here, but other than that it's just a regular house. It's got windows and doors and each room has four walls, but It's somewhere that really feels like home and when I'm feeling down, there's nowhere that I'd rather be.


Where is your favourite place in the world?


Love and kisses


Becky
