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?

Last day of summer

Our last day in France was the day before Charlie’s birthday… The next day we would be driving… So we celebrated a little early.

Guess who got to blow out his third candle? Hint: not Charlie. Ha! Oh it’s tough having older cousins… Sometimes I try to edit out the mess my children make of their clothes. And sometimes I just can’t be bothered (see below). Hey, these pictures weren’t going to win any awards anyway.

It was a perfect last day. We might not be going back next year (boo!). But we might all be meeting up in a big rented house somewhere instead (yey!). Meanwhile, it was goodbye to France and it’s starry starry nights…

My wish is to go to France one day..not the city but a countryside and it looks just like this in my mind. xxoo Thank you for sharing these..they made me smile.
