I feel at home right now.
I have my own home with all the privacy, beauty and comfort I could ask for. I have my pets for the times I want company without conversation. I have a family member living within walking distance if I want company with conversation.
I live in a scenic suburb with friendly, if not slightly nosey but well meaning neighbours, there's a river and parklands nearby which attracts native wildlife including some very cute ducks and the same hills I've grown up with my whole life in the distance.
I'm 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city centre where every weekend I can entertain myself and people watch to my heartís content over a lazy brunch. I donít often reach out to people but I feel accepted and part of a community here regardless. It feels like home.
