We all know that home is where your heart is, it’s where you lay your hat and there’s no place like it. But where exactly is it?

Is is where you grew up?

Is home where you’ve set down roots? Where you’ve chosen to settle?

Home. Is it a house that you’ve stamped with your personality? Or a district that you know upside down and inside out.

We stayed in a hotel in our old neighbourhood while visiting Melbourne on the weekend, quite a novelty. So we were home but also visitors.

When I wistfully explained to a man I met that I once lived in the area he said: “And now you live in the beautiful place!”

We’ve returned to the place that is still unfamiliar but which has become home. And I think the answer to all the questions that I posed above is:

Yes.
