I always love my neighbourhood whether it be during the heat of summer or the dead of winter. I mean, I feel pretty lucky to live in Putney and it's really the first neighbourhood I've ever lived in that I truly love and always feel at home in. I've lived here long enough that I rarely step outside without seeing someone I know or getting a friendly wave through a window and I'm surrounded by local businesses that I adore and patronise frequently. My favourite coffee shop is here, my favourite pubs are here, there are a few really great restaurants nearby, my hairdresser is less than 2 blocks from my flat, my ballroom + latin dance studio is just down the road and I'm walking distance from Fulham where there are a number of places I love and most of my friends live there too. What's not to love, right?
I particularly love Putney in Spring. It has a feeling about it. Our neighbours have strong green thumb game, so there are always so many beautiful flowers to enjoy and as soon as the sun starts to make an appearance, the streets are flooded with smiling faces. Putney is always on the fit side - we do have several gyms and fitness facilities in the area, but when Spring comes there are cyclists, runners and spandex clad people carrying yoga mats everywhere while rowers and sailing enthusiasts can be seen taking up residence on the river. It's Spring now of course and no matter what I have going on or how many chores need doing at home, I find myself unable to resist putting on a floaty dress and going out to enjoy the hood... What do you love most about your neighbourhood?
