Being Home - our home

Home. I arrived last evening after a drive from Cornwall. I stopped for an hour and a bit to see a friend of many, many years standing and she looked wonderful. As I expected, I drove straight past her house, and had to turn round and come back to it, but it was wonderful to catch up after not seeing her and her family for 10 years plus.

My family seemed genuinely pleased to see me when I got home, and boy it is good to sleep in your own bed. There were loads of Christmas cards to read and a letter from the Bank holding our mortgage with a redemption figure. So today's headline is that we have paid off what remains of our mortgage. Our home is now really ours. It is a slightly funny feeling after all these years...
