Here are some of the things that bring me joy…

Heroic Self Sacrifice

Memorial of heroic self sacrifice. Postmans Park London. Fox Socks UK Lifestyle Blog

Postman’s Park is my favourite place in London. Fact. There are three reasons for this: 1. It’s eerily serene, which is hard to find around these parts. 2. It featured in my one of my favourite play/movies, Closer, which you will have unknowingly heard of through three popular emo songs (Thnks Fr Th Mmrs, Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off, But It’s Better If You Do) if not through its numerous award nominations. 3. It has a memorial – or wall of plaques – dedicated to heroic self-sacrifice.

The Inevitable Baby Comparison

Our puppy is like a baby. Literally every dog owner I have ever met INCLUDING MYSELF warned me that our puppy would be like a baby. I didn’t truly believe that our puppy would be like a baby, however, until she vomited in my lap on the car ride home, did something unspeakable in David’s hands before bedtime (more on that later) and woke us up at 5:30am with a piercing shriek.

The Truth About London

London Harrods in bocca. Fox Socks UK Lifestyle Blog

There are a lot of things no-one tells you when you move to London. Things you’ll inevitably pick up yourself along the way, but which you’ll use as an accusation when talking to any fellow Londoners you knew pre-London. WHY didn’t you tell me to avoid Oxford Street on weekends, for example, and WHY did you play down the rat problem?
