What makes your home a home?

A recent study released by IKEA revealed that homes don't always feel like home, and some people reported feeling more at home in their cars. Does your home feel like home? What makes it like that? And if you don't feel at home there, why not? Where do you feel most at home?

Jodiddleo says: Wow, this question is relevant to me at the moment. I lived in Sydney for 40 years , raring two children and living with my Husband and the fact that my old Mum was a kilometre away. Well, my husband has gone, my children have grown up and have families of their own and I lost my Mum at 102 late in 2017. I have moved to the Central Coast of NSW and even though I love my little house is it home yet, no I don’t think so. I often find myself thinking of Sydney, my friends, my job,my usual coffee shop even my checkout lady at Coles who knew by my first name, that was home and yes when I’m in the car I could be anywhere and I could understand feeling at ease in my car, roads are roads. Writing this down is therapeutic because I feel this is my forever house now ! Thankyou all
