“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.” Samuel Johnson
Who said fun was dead? Certainly not me. I love nothing more than walking around Camden Town for some impromptu shopping. It all happened at the very last minute and we decided to get there this morning. You see things that you didn’t even know you needed, such as eco soil. This is simply brilliant, and it makes my flowers look so much more fashionable! I feel like a decoration goddess now (which I am not. At least not without the eco soil).
You can also find T-shirts that light up when you listen to music. It kept my little one busy all morning and she has spent more than an hour dancing in the kitchen when we got back home. Here is a (short) video of what we had to endure…Hopefully, someone will sleep well tonight.
There was a lot to keep us busy. More than 5000 shops and stalls, apparently…
Furthermore, you have food from all over the world on display, and my lunch consisted of a roll of spinach and feta. It was simply divine, and set me back only £4. While I was happily stuffing my face, my daughters were having a £2 slice of pizza. They didn’t even finish it –That’s how huge the portions were.
We got offered lots of other savoury foods when we were wandering around.
This whole family trip made me think that I am not the same person than in Paris. I would never have had a sudden whim to go to the flea market on a Sunday morning. Never. I was much too serious for this. It simply wouldn’t have crossed my mind.
The thing is, I can’t put my finger on what has changed in me. Maybe it’s something to do with age? Why am I having more fun over here? Why am I doing things that I would never have considered doing when I was living with France (This includes blogging and shopping in Camden Town, obviously…). Furthermore, I don’t think that I would have set up a business if I had stayed in France. Maybe it has something to do with the air we breathe over here? What has happened to me? I simply don’t get it.
Well, instead of fighting those changes I am now happily embracing them. Who knows where it will take me. The sky is the limit!
