We have been home nearly a month and we are all settling back nicely into a routine. I am still unpacking boxes and trying to locate items that I am pretty sure I hadn't sold off in the pre-Italian yard sales. The children are all settling into old and new activities and are thrilled to be reunited with friends.
We still have no pictures on the walls and many of the windows are in need of curtains, but already it feels like home. Funny enough it felt like home the moment we arrive back in the city. It was like slipping into your favourite cashmere sweater. Familiar and warm and all embracing.
