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?

They survived the wheelbarrow so we thought we’d try something else.

Who needs Disneyland when you have wheelbarrows and scramblers? There were tractors too. And big fields to lie in and hills to roll down and streams to explore and trees to climb. And doe-eyed cows and scary geese and woolly sheep. Aah… Twas good. So so good.

And yes, that was pretty much Charlie’s face the entire time we were there.
