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?

On the side, you have my little brother's partner comforting her daughter who had just fallen over and banged her leg. The little blond girl in the princess dress is my big brother's daughter, she was running to get a towel for her cousin, to keep her warm while her leg was checked. I know all this means there's no real focal point to the pictures, but I love them for the same reason: it reminds me of the happy chaos of when we're all together.
