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?


I am grateful for wonderful colleagues who care enough about my children to want to make them feel special…

I am grateful for our lovely flat with it’s big windows that fill our lives with lovely light.

I am grateful that my children love weird things. Like Star Wars alarm clocks. But also, given half the chance, long sticks and shiny pebbles. It really is the thought that counts.

I am grateful for their smiles. More than anything else in the world, their smiles make me happy.
