Our New Home

Illustration Friday.

Each Friday, a new word is posted onto the "Illustration Friday" group on Flickr. This weeks word is NEW. The first thought I had was of my little sister, Gemma. Gemma and her husband Leon have recently become home owners. The first time they did their weekly shop in their new home was quite an exciting affair.

Each time I now hear the Crosby Stills and Nash song "Our House" it reminds me of Gem and Leon, pottering around and admiring their lovely home, and it makes me smile.

I'll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase
That you bought today 

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you
And our la,la,la, la,la, la, la, la, la, la, la.....
