At Home

I have lived in this house for 16 years.Alan and I found this house when Emma was almost two and when we looked at it two chameleons crept over the lawn and climbed the trellis which has Honeysuckle on it now.I knew we had to live here and Alan said ," I am never leaving this house". He is still here.He is in the creak of the wooden floorboards, he is in the scent of the jasmine which twirls over the trellis. I know he is watching us from high up in the branches of the White Stinkwood tree he loved.I hear him laugh when I wake up in the middle of the night after a heavy downpour and the gutters have overflowed.I can't leave this house.He is here.

I have Mr B now and he loves this house too,he understands about Alan.He understands I love this house.
