The Miami blues, the British summer in the countryside, the big birthday coming up and the Italian trip to celebrate it…the adventures of anna in her wonderland on each side of the pond

Hello dear readers

After 10 days in the hot and humid Miami I am back home, reunited with Coco, struggling with the jet lag, enjoying the beautiful (for the moment) British weather and so looking forward to have my husband back home at the weekend, I wasn’t very happy to start with but thanks to Norwegian airlines I had two more days in Florida due to problems with the plane, luckily I managed to fly back solo without too many problems…I just missed my cousin’s birthday bash in London and the chance to spend time with him and our friends…Bloody Norwegian!!!

The vacation/holiday was hot…hot… and sometimes stormy, so looking forward to go back there in September when, I hope, the weather should be more bearable.

I have some pictures to show you the best bits…and I am getting ready to turn 30 years old in 19 days…I am actually quite paranoid about, I am growing old and it doesn’t help the fact that apparently I cannot pronounce 30 correctly…according to people I sound Irish when I say thirty…I am going to be stuck with the 3 for a while damn it!

Well, let’s not worry about and let’s just think that after the birthday we will go to the Italian Riviera to celebrate the time with my parents and friends…so looking forward to trofie al pesto and industrial quantities of focaccia to eat!

Have a good day you all

They say size doesn’t matter…I think it does in the States!

The Italian week, the wedding planning, the two lakes, the British sea, the Italian family over, the domestic goddess and the next trip to the land of the free and home of the brave, Anna is keeping busy!

8 Jul

Dear readers

As usual I am really late at posting updates on the blog, sorry guys I lose track of time sometimes! I spent a week in Italy with my family checking out wedding venues for my next bride and groom to be, so pleased to have had the chance to go over the beautiful Lake Como again, work meeting pleasure is always the way forward! And I spent the weekend enjoying time with the family, going clubbing on the other lake, Lake Garda, relaxing and having fun… sometimes just a few days home recharge my batteries so much to keep on going better and stronger!

Back home I keep on feeling like I need to cook and bake all day, yesterday for example I wasn’t feeling my best but suddenly after dinner I thought..I fancy a cake! Opened the fridge, found two large oranges, butter, yogurt and eggs…one hour later we were all eating orange cake!

I have had my family over last weekend where we spent a nice day in Brighton on a beautiful sunny day, shame Coco is in season and we were chased by male dogs on the seafront…and shame a few days after going back into Brighton I curbed my wheel very badly…my husband wasn’t impressed as you all can imagine, my excuse was “I have had the car for 4 months and this is the first time, I am doing quite alright for myself!”

Anyway I felt boring last week so I decided to change my look, so short bob hairstyle with blonde highlights, I am only a month and eleven days from turning 30…I am probably experiencing a beginning of midlife crisis…and between a cup of tea and a walk with the dog we are getting ready for the next Miami trip, only ten days to go!

Have a good week everybody

The first thing to do when in Italy? Espresso is my must
