Home Sweet Home

Yesterday, after a final shift at work, my Mum came to pick me up and bring me home for the Easter break. I'm not usually one for going home but this time, I can definitely tell it's the end of term because I'm really pleased to be home. I'd say I've come home for a break, but y'know, I've got assignments and a dissertation to finish! I was greeted by a yankee candle and box of my favourite chocolates though, to get me through, so it's not all bad ;) Here are probably my five top things about being home..


1. Free food. Most important thing, right? ;) Having milk reappear when you've finished a carton is just the best. I know it's a little lazy but oh well. No more workouts just to get food from the supermarket! And also, roast dinners.. you just cannot make a roast for one person!

2. HEATING. Although, not going to lie, I'm absolutely sweating after just one night. I genuinely have to acclimatize to my own house.

3. Being close to friends and family. It's not always easy living half way across the country, and the rest of your family are miles away. It's soppy, but it is nice just being 5 minutes away from my Nan's or a couple of yards away from your friend's so you can stop by for a cuppa. It's definitely something I'd previously taken for granted!

4. Knowing where everything is. I'm not saying that I don't know my Uni town, but there's nothing like knowing every little corner of your hometown. All of the tiny shops in which tourists probably wouldn't notice, all of the short cuts, country lanes, best views.. you get the idea. Saying that, I've moved house, so I guess I need to actually discover what these things are again!

5. My double bed. This is SO materialistic, but I do not care. Do you know how hard it is to go from a double bed back to a single bed?! I have not been able to starfish for ages (this is obviously really important..), and I am kinda sick of rolling over and falling out of bed! No, a double bed is definitely one of life's finest things.

Saying this, I'm sure after a week of being home, I'll be craving my own space again!

What do you prefer? Being at home or away?

I do know what you mean.. having your own space and freedom to do as you please is great but trust me, you'll crave some home comforts eventually ;) xx

Being at home over absolutely everything! I'll be moving out soon into our own place before the wedding (jesus, I feel so old) and I am so nervous about it. Maybe I'll love my own space, but for now, I'm a home bird :)

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called dr clement and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast a powerful spell on my ex and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm, My ex called me, surprisingly, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me back to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody that has a relationship problem, he we be a help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email:drakugbespellhome@gmail.com you can emai him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any kind of problem, thank you once again dr for bring my husband back to me .I can never stop talking about you sir you can email him for your own help his email is drakugbespellhome@gmail.com
