I’ve lived in London longer than anywhere else I’ve lived. The Brainy One has been in London for thirty or more years. The Boy Child is a Londoner, the only one of us with the place of birth on his passport listed as London. As I’m now in my 13th year of West London living, I think I’m a Londoner, albeit with Northern roots.
Here’s how I’ve brought London living into my life:
London art work: There’s plenty out there, ranging from a few pounds to thousands of pounds. I bought the above framed piece from a local independent gift shop at a very good price.
London Girl mug: Again, there’s plenty out there, but the simple elegance of that mug caught my eye. I bought it here.
London themed stationery: Paperchase does a great range of London themed postcards and most decent stationers often carry a range of correspondence cards. Mine were a Christmas gift and are from Smythson of Bond Street.
