I once read that to make cats feel at home, when you move, you should put butter on their paws so they lick it off and feel at home, never having had cats I don't know if its true, but at the moment I am scattering my cushions, lighting candles and incense, cooking my favourite comforting food, listening to plenty of music and taking lots of baths to try and make me feel settled in my new home.

Isn't it strange the rituals we go through to make ourselves feel right in new surroundings? How much 'better' one can feel when our pots and pans have found a home in the cupboard, the satisfaction we feel when our mirror is placed on the mantle next to the ostrich feathers and other assorted trinkets and how we can feel more at peace when sitting against that ratty loveable cushion on our favourite chair with a cup of tea (or coffee)?
