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?

LTWRL – Week 9

My Week 9 picture and some other pictures from that same day…I was trying to incorporate the criss-crossing shadows into this picture (above). It didn’t really work because the sun was too bright for Amélie to look up. But I like it enough to include it here anyway. Because (1) the shadows on her face look a little like superhero markings and there’s nothing Amélie would like more than to be a superhero (and the lines even make the shape of a capital A for Amélie, with her eyes forming the horizontal line: Super Amélie!); and (2) the henna on her hand matches the colour of the fence and that makes me happy for some odd reason. Talking of superheroes, below you will find a rare glimpse of Monkey Boy just as he’s taking off…
