My town, Daylesford, was featured in the Guardian (UK) today as one of the top 'alternative hotspots' in the world. Have a look here. It is all pretty much true, Daylesford is an amazing place to live and it has just about everything: yummy local food, art, beautiful buildings, vintage stores, gay and lesbian festival, pretty scenery, mineral springs and spas, bookshops and good coffee, yet all with a 'small town' feel. Two things to point out, though - firstly, my children are not the 'attractively feral' ones referred to in the article (I don't like to see kids in tatty old cardies with ratty hair, is it just me? Am I too European?), and secondly that's not me sitting on the hay in the photo!
