I'll be honest, and I've said it before, I love the south.
I lived near London for many years and I love the buzz and excitement of the place, the shops, the theatres, and the fast pace of life.
Now I'm here in the Midlands. I love the people, but I still want to transport them down the M1 and re-locate them just outside the M25.
It's not for everyone, of course, and the grass is always greener, but I'm a city girl at heart so I'd like to be back there one day.
Today we travelled to Manchester to spend the weekend with close family. We drove through Derbyshire and across the Pennines.
With no internet, no television, no Twitter and my mobile lost at the bottom of my bag somewhere, there were no distractions.
And I just soaked in the fabulous views.
