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 … Continue reading Maybe It’s Because I’m A Londoner
