Thanks
to Susannah Conway’s Something for
the weekend
 post, I was immediately hooked on Moorea Seal’s 52 Lists. I
love lists and prompts so I took this mini project on in a heartbeat. 

For
week 12, we’re asked to list the things
that feel like home
, after Skyping my parents last night, I was
sipping my cup of tea then realised there were so many things on my list. We’re at the moment on our little round the world tour of awesomeness,
taking us to a different country every month or so. Our first stop is Japan and
we’re based in Tokyo for five weeks. One of the things I pride myself on is my
ability to organise and make things feel like home wherever we are. In reality,
we haven’t been living in our two bedroom apartment since late 2011, but that doesn’t
mean we haven’t been feeling at home wherever we are. I love knowing that there are things I can do to make our temporary stays more homely.

So here are my top things on my list: first
and foremost is Tim, he is my world and wherever I am with him, I already feel at home. From hearing the sounds of his
energetic typing on the keyboard, his obsession with making his own
aeropress coffee (with beans that smell so good), to taking photos and make me
tea (and breakfast and dinner…) he keeps me whole. Then there’s my family, my mum is really
into sending iMessage photos (though I’m to blame, I did teach her), my dad has
the tendency to film our Skype calls (even though you only ever see his
shoulder half the time), my grandma always has stories to share, and before I
left home last month, I got to have plenty of chats with her. They keep me grounded. Then there’s my sisters,
brother in law and nephews where epic messages, Skype conversations and emails are exchanged. They make me smile. Then there’s my friends, where no matter how much time has passed or little contact made, they’re always there for me. Lastly there’s my writing which keeps me connected and my teddy Newton (a
six-monthversary present from Tim) who keeps the bed pretty. No matter where I am, they too remind me of
home.

So here
is my list of 20 things that make me feel like home, I could probably write
more, but in my little yellow book only has so much room to write 🙂

  • Tim
  • cups
    of tea
  • the
    smell and sound of grinding coffee
  • my
    parents, grandmother, sisters, brother in law and nephews
  • yellow
    things
  • the
    sound of typing
  • photo
    messages
  • Endotaspa
    calendar and mantra “do more of what makes you happy”
  • blue
    skies
  • Newton
  • candles
    and incense
  • taking
    photos
  • family
    dinners
  • Skype
  • emails, what’s app, iMessage
  • GGirls
  • hoodies
    and scarves
  • organised
    wardrobes
  • writing
  • slippers

Challenge:
I will enjoy this week by relaxing on the couch, sipping tea and reading
