I have been thinking a lot about this week’s challenge. What exactly makes Home, home? Is it the people, the bricks and mortar or memories. If the people I love are not here is where they are home? Nope, so it’s not people in the flesh that makes home, that’s family. What about bricks and mortar? I have lived in Yorkshire, Sussex and Oxfordshire. All our boys were born in Sussex and all lived there and in Oxfordshire, but to me there was always something missing. Coming back to Pickering was always coming home to me.
When my brother and I were little we loved holidays, but were always glad to be coming home afterwards. For the last couple of miles we watched the road avidly for the first glimpse of the Church spire, which said that soon we would be home. I still look for it now when we come home, only now I am lucky enough to call Pickering Home again. It means my husband,my parents, my brother,my grand parents, my friends, sons, grand children who now visit, it means the place where I played, went to school, learned ballet, was a Brownie and a Girl Guide, went to dances and met those strange creatures Boys, and the Church in which I was baptised and married. In short where I have so many memories.
So I am using a photo I shared a couple of years ago.
