A Love Affair With London…

I Love London.

I know that’s stating the obvious. My Twitter name is Love_London. I write about London all the time. I do my best to keep you up to date with the best parties, events, and general goings on that are happening in this bloody marvellous little town.

Highbury & IslingtonBut there’s one bit of London I love best.

Islington.

Every time I walk out of Highbury & Islington station I feel like I just got home…which I suppose in a funny little way I am. My Daddy was born and bred in Islington and I had my own little lovely place there for a few years. Like anywhere…It’s best when it’s sunny of course – but even when it’s wet, grey and miserable, it makes me happy.

I can mooch around Upper Street for hours…browsing in boutiques…gazing longingly into the window of Ottolenghi…drinking coffee outside cafes and just watching the world go by.

I love the diversity of the area. I love the sight of weddings in the Town Hall, the greenness of the parks, the noises, the sounds. I dream of living in one of the huge townhouses. I need more of the farmers market in my life. I wish I could afford all of the clothes in the quirky shop windows. I love the bars, the restaurants, the people, the oddness. I miss my little flat and wish I’d never been silly enough to leave.

So, I have informed the boy, I’m going back. I’ve been looking for a new flat for ages but today clinched it for me. I’m heading back to N1…and quite frankly….I can’t wait!
