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?

My Handsome Boys

When I came home this evening, Hanno was wearing his new green jumper with a matching green check shirt.

I thought he looked handsome.

So I asked if I could take his picture.

I don’t often get home early enough to be able to take pictures.

Not in daylight anyway.

So this was going to be a treat.

Especially because he did look very handsome indeed.

As soon as I picked up my camera, Charlie started getting excited and shouting “cheese! cheese!”.

I didn’t teach him to say “cheese” for pictures.

I think he might have learnt it off the telly.

See, and now you understand why I think TV should be banned.

Anyway, my picture of Han ended up being a picture of both my handsome boys.

Which is just fine by me.

But now I need someone to take a picture of my and my girl.

Because I think we need the set.

Don’t you?
