    Please, answer the question:

    What do the words HOME and HOUSE mean for you.
    Mantion your age and occupation , if possible.

    Many thanks,

    Home means my family home in Lancashire. House is where I live which over time becomes my home or alternativly my 'house' aka 'line' at school in which I was in.

    Home : Means the place where I live at the time, where I generally feel comfortable. (For me it's pretty interchangable - if I'm staying with my boyfriend in London and I say "Let's go home" I don't mean come 3 hours back here, I mean back to the place I'm staying at the time. Having said that, if I was in a hotel somewhere I wouldn't refer to it as home, nor do I tend to if I'm staying in a villa or something on holiday)
    (Hey .. I seem to have misread the question and started writing a research paper AS MY ANSWER!)
    House : Means a building where people live. Not necessarily me, but could be.
