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?

Happy Sunday

Here’s to Sundays. To being outside. To exploring. To digging your feet into the sand. To feeling the wind on your face. To waves and rocks and shells. Here’s to life. To the unexpected, the imperfect and the beauty of the unknown. Here’s to being brave, bold and curious. Here’s to being together. And to being together being enough. Here’s to you. And to you and you and you. Here’s to happiness, wherever and however you find it. Here’s to love and kindness. Here’s to letting go and holding on. Here’s to this beautiful planet of ours. And here’s to the people who make it go round. Cheers!
