    on the/my way home

    Is there any difference between these two statements?

    Yesterday, on my way home, I lost my billfold. (this sounds more natural to me)
    Yesterday, on the way home, I lost my billfold. (I think this is all right and means the same as the above statement)

    Thank you.
    Yes, of course they're fine (they're from a dictionary) but is there any difference in meaning?
