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?

Paparazism runs in the family

I don’t even care about the ugly surroundings, I love this photo so much. Also, why will he pose for her but not for me?

I mean will you seriously look at that? Does that photo on the right not make you go all funny? Maybe that’s just me. The complicity between my two monkeys kills me. In an entirely good way. Wait for it though cos it gets even better…

I die.

(and yes, these are still pictures from last October – thus the excessively pale skin on my children and the leaves on the ground)
