I feel it doesn't hurt to big up London once in a while and remind myself what a wonderful city it is to live in. It's been my home for 10 years now - who'd have thought a country mouse like me would be happy in the city? For now, I am.
At this time of year so much of it looks particularly lovely - we've had some snow and some crisp sunny days and relatively little rain
I walk down Bow Lane every day on my way home and the Christmas lights never fail to lift my spirits.

It's not half bad, London.
