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?

Look: no wipes!

I took this picture for the weekly Let The Wild Rumpus Last blog posting. Well, I didn’t actually take this picture. The picture I took featured hair spaghetti and stained tops and bolognese besmirched faces and door joins… But I made it all clean for posting and it turned out looking like this. Thing is, there were many more pictures than this that day and I can’t for the life of me bring myself to remove the spaghetti, stains and sauce from all of them. But you do have to see them because they’re so Charlie. So you get the real versions of these ones.And then Amélie joined in…And then this happened…But then all the cuddles and loveliness got a little overwhelming…For a while anyway…And I went to bed happy that night. Good night to you too. Sweet dreams xxx
