“She grew up in the ordinary paradise of the English countryside”
~ A.S. Byatt
I have a split personality when it comes to where I grew up. My parents lived in central London and my Grandparents down in Sussex. Every school holiday I would spend with them and so my life was much split between the inner city and rural countryside. As a result I love and have a strong affinity with both. However if I had my way I would live in the middle of the city and dip into the countryside when I needed it. Because for all my love of rural England the city girl in me seems to always come first.
