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?


This little monster loves his baths. He loves splashing and slipping and sliding. He loves soap suds and, apparently, squishing plastic containers onto his head and roaring like a dinosaur.Yep, he really does love his baths. But he does not like getting his face wet.Which is a shame really because that’s usually the bit which needs cleaning most. Yes, my little monster loves baths and that’s a good thing. Because he’s a real little filth bucket most of the time.The prettiest filth bucket on planet earth.I love you little monster.
