The story behind the poem
This poem came about after spending some time at my
nan's house (whom we all call Mam). I thought of all the things that
made her house so unique, things that were stable and always brought
me back to my childhood.
I moved about a lot when I was younger, lived in many houses and
therefore my nan's house is one place that has been constant.
This poem is about all the little things I love and will miss when
she goes, all the things that convey for me what a real and warm
person my nan is.
