Living in the city 

A few days ago we got lucky with some X Factor tickets! It was for the 6 chair challenge – boys and groups category (my fav). I don’t really watch X Factor anymore, and haven’t been for a few years. It’s just the same old same old and the winners usually do way worse than the runner ups – the winner’s curse. But these are free tickets and I wasn’t going to let those go! We were so excited to be there and the vibe was awesome. The actual performances were pretty disappointing – the boys especially. And there was a few controversies but I won’t spoil it for anyone (if anyone still watches). It was a fun evening out.

Yet it significantly overrun so we realised the trains would only take us so far. Thankfully they did take us back into East London so it was only a short bus journey back.

That reminded me of how thankful I am to be living in London. Sure they call New York the city that never sleeps. And sure London does get rather tired – the tube stops running just past midnight (and those plans of night lines look like they’re not happening) and streets go mighty quite. But buses run all night, street lights shine bright and cars still zoom by. It certainly makes me appreciate living in a busy city.

Do you prefer living in a busy city, suburbs or further out?
