Excuse the mess, but we live here!

First of all, Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Och aye, me lovelies, there is NOTHING like home when you've been away for a wee bit.

Oh yeah... its brill going away on holiday, having fabulous adventures, experiencing new and exciting things and spending time with daft, crazy friends and having a guid laugh.  The thrill of puting up yer tent, the first night sleeping in a tent in the rain.  The unisex communal ablutions where  you experience brushing yer teeth in front of complete strangers and hearing couples giggling in the showers.  Hey! they don't call them unisex showers for nothin'. 

The kids love it too;  falling asleep under the stars and not having to wash as much as at home, having dirt under their toe nails and mum not really caring about it.   Eating from tin plates and cups - no hair driers or TV but the girls don't mind because they're having so much fun riding their bikes barefoot, exploring the camp sites and finding creepy crawlies and spiders that emerge from every crevace. 

"There comes a time in every man's life when he needs his own toilet" - Patrick Suskind

However, there is nothing like coming home to yer own bed.  The first time your put your head down on yer flavourite, fresh, fluffy, feather pillow when you get home, is pure bliss!! 

Getting into yer own bath with yer own bubbles and every pot and potion are your convenience , using yer own bog and scratching yer itch whenever you want -  its just heaven!  There is NOTHING like it!!!  All yer nice home comforts that make your life just so much easier and so much happier.

Yeah, home is where the mortgage is....

The feeling of being home after having been away is absolutely amazing! I'm glad you had such a great time on holiday though!

Sounds like you had fun! But it sure is great to come home. We spent 4 weeks away, 2 of those in the car and boy did my house look HUGE and CLEAN when we got back.

Now I want to leave again lol

When ever someone comes to visit I say "Excuse the mess, but it always looks like this"

There is no place like home. Particularly when you're still on holiday & the missus is working a back shift...

My family and I camp quite a bit and I totally get what you are saying. It's all well and good, but nothing beats coming back to your own bed.

Yep going away is good but there's no place like home!

Welcome back and Happy New Year!

There's no place like home (clicks red ruby slippers together 3 times). I could not agree with you more. About the wonderful pull of being home and the mortgage! :-)

There's never place like home, isn't it?

Great choices. I never heard the second one.
