Life according to Anna: best friends and diamonds are forever and my best friend shines bright like a diamond!

24 Nov

Hello readers,

I feel completely disorientated and a bit empty right now, my best friend came to visit and we spent nearly four days together 24/7 and now that she has gone back to Italy I feel…strange, and I feel that something is missing in my life. Me and my best friend Anna (so easy we even share a name!) have been best friends for nearly five years and of course with the fact that nearly four years ago I moved abroad the friendship has grown even stronger but probably because we are used to see each other not very often when I fly back home now spending a few days together doing everything, shopping, cooking, drinking, laughing, even gardening…now that she is not is here I feel so confused. The soundtrack of our days was Unapologetic from Rihanna and I do know that my Anna shines bright like a diamond in the sky!

Countdown to Christmas has started…only a month away and I cannot wait to go back to celebrate with my family (and Anna) and I can’t wait to celebrate my Christmas on Boxing day with my husband ( I need help with presents please I am absolutely stuck!) and I can’t wait even more to go away again on the 27th December…have a good weekend you all!

My lucky post number 100??? So much to look forward to!

19 Dec

It’s going to be big; it’s going to be good. I cannot believe I am writing my post number 100!! Someone must be bored, someone maybe still enjoys my blog.

I just do this for the pleasure of writing, still hoping that my written English is good enough to be understood! I am still recovering from the fun weekend, trying to wash the alcohol away with plenty of Earl Grey Tea, it’s my last day at work and I have so much to look forward to:

1. Flying back to Italy tomorrow

2. Spend my day with my gorgeous niece, my brother and my parents

3. See my friends

4. Spend Christmas with my family

5. Come back on Boxing day evening and celebrate Christmas with my gorgeous husband

6. Flying to Miami

7. Spend New Year’s eve in Miami

8. Flying to Barbados for our late honeymoon on the 4th January

9. Enjoy Barbados (hopefully we are going to meet Rihanna!)

10. Enjoy more days in Miami

Do you think have I got enough to look forward to? I hope so!

Office Christmas lunch today and tonight a good dinner with my husband based on my special homemade Lasagne, wash down with some good Prosecco!

Have a good day everyone! xxx
