Not that I'm boasting as I have chosen to live in South-East London but the news today that Buckinghamshire has the best quality of life of all counties in the countries doesn't surprise me in the least. The county fiercelessly clung on to grammar schools and the 12+ (not 11) for a start, and it is, I must admit, a great place to grow up.
Fields, fun, trees to climb (I'm a boy). It's like stating the bleeding obvious really. One day I will return I think because it is the "Shire", for now I love my life in one of the wost quality of life areas in the country, but I'm not going to lie and say I don't miss looking over Chequers on a nice Sunday afternoon on Coombe Hill!
