On Being Boring

I moved from London to Brussels with my husband nearly 10 years ago. When I told people we were moving, the news was greeted with bemusement: why did we want to move to a city that was possibly the most boring place on earth? Ten years later and I can honestly say that I've had more fun here than I ever did living in London. It might not be the most exciting city in the world but it is a fantastic place to live. It is full of hidden treasures that you probably never get to see as a tourist: wonderful shops, amazing food, great museums and galleries, beautiful architecture, a forest (yes, a whole forest), and so much more... And if that doesn't convince you, well, get on a train and you could be in Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne or, yes, London in no more than a couple of hours... Which other city can you say that about?

Baby it’s cold outside.

Today the sky is gray, the wind is howling at our windows, and the rain is falling like thousands of needles from the clouds… There couldn’t be a better time to look back at pictures of a warmer time.Although, to be fair, it was pretty windy that day too (see evidence below). But wind on a warm summer’s day somehow feels better than the bone-chilling experience that greeted us outside today. We woke up, got dressed, went for a walk, got rained on, hurried home and got straight back into our pijamas. I’m now going to bake some biscuits. It’s that kind of weather.
