For the longest time, I’ve always seen myself as a country girl at heart. I’m not really sure why I was under that illusion, especially since I’ve always lived and worked in the city. But now that I’m living in the country, there are days when I absolutely long and yearn for the chaotic life and mess of the the metropolis. However, I’m going to contradict myself now by saying, I cannot imagine living anywhere else but here, especially with a three-year-old daughter. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, the country is the best place to bring up children. Already little T has made such lovely memories here like going down the harbour when the tide is out, and leaving a little patch of beach for her and her best-friend to play-in.
I still miss the city though, before little T my husband and I used to go to London to watch plays, musicals, go to museums or browse through books at Foyles, my favourite London bookshop. Nowadays though, to get my must-have urban-fix we usually go to Exeter or when we’re up visiting my lovely in-laws at Woburn Sands, we usually hop on a train to visit the capital. For any city person contemplating life in the country, a monthly urban fix is a must (this will save you from going nuts and weepy-longing for the city, it works for me!)
As you can see from above photo, even little T enjoys having her urban-fix too. She loves shoes, she’s a girl after all 🙂
I’m actually counting the days till early February, since we are scheduled to visit the family and that means another lovely trip to London! I already have a particular place in mind to visit designer outlet UK in Wembley. I’m hoping to be able to bag a sale, or am I too late for that? If not, so looking forward to dining out in the many restaurants there and perhaps, little T can have even have a sip of her favourite babycino. What about you? Are you a country or city person?
