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?

Rocketdog says: Our home is a place we invested all our savings into. Its our countryside haven away from the noisy city we work within. it belies our every treasured moment and dream we have invested time love and pleasure in.The drive or bus journey to work absorbs 2 hours of our precious time and the 8 hours of the working day absorbs the remaining precious time. I do enjoy driving however I treasure our home more as it harbours all the joys and tribulation that our life has brought us. Our car is a means of commuting to work or visit our friends and travel to escape the stresses that the working week often brings. The smells and odours of home encompassed by the gardens fragment flowers and wet lawn after a rain offer a greater joy than the fumes and car smells that are so much a part of driving. whilst indoors our furnishings, wall paintings and entertainment area, along with the pleasures that the kitchen offers enthrals us more than the urge to hit the road. No I look forward to my home more than the time we spend in our car.
