No place like home
I love the comforts of home, the waft of mum’s cooking, the taste of clean, fresh air but the whirr of the loud dishwasher rings in the house all night. The feel of soft carpet under my feet reminds me of why I love staying indoors. The view from my balcony makes me feel like the King of Caves Beach as everything is so small. You can barely see the silent waiting coal ships on the horizon and the flicker of the whale tails.
