what a bad blogger I have been… My only excuse is four days in France at mum mum’s where the internet connection is slow and I tried to switch off. Not only did I switch off but realised a few things…
My mum lives in the middle of nowhere in France, literally you can’t even walk to a shop! I live I’m Islington, where there is a Tesco 30 secs away. There is a bar/restaurant about 10 mins walk from her house but if you want to go anywhere else, you need to drive, get on a bike or put on comfy shows for a long walk!
It was so nice to:
- Sleep in real darkness and silence (I slept 11 hours one night!)
- sit but the fire
- read my book
- be surrounded by nature
- see my “freres” that I rarely see
- go shopping in a supermarche (sorry can’t find the accent on the ipad) they have about a million different yogurts for example
- Eat a raclette
- chat with my mum in the kitchen
- watch French TV
- relax relax relax
and it made me realise what a crazed commercial expensive life one can lead in London, how nice it would be to be live nearer family and how noisy London is and how much stress that causes.
It was so relaxing, I came back fully refreshed and now want to buy a country house! I am not done with London but definitely getting tired with it, also a sign of getting older I think 🙂
