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?


He is no longer this chubby. He is all long skinny limbs now. His hair has grown. And been cut. And grown again. He has learnt to talk and pee in a pot. He no longer fits into onsies. He has to wear t-shirts and boy-knickers instead. He has moved into his big bed and no longer sleeps in a cot. He’s turned two since these pictures were taken. Sometimes they’re terrible twos but mostly they’re not.He still loves his daddy. A lot. He’s still very cuddly. He is still my beautiful boy. He is still happy and smiley more often than not. He still insists on going to bed with a bottle. Or two or three before finally falling asleep. He’s a good boy. And I would still give up everything for him, including life itself. Some things change. Some things do not.
