Are we growing old too quickly? 27, feeling a teenager and behaving like a middle age woman…is the young fogey generation taking over?

17 Apr

Reading the paper a few days ago, I noticed an article that made me smile but made me think at the same time. Prince William and Kate Middleton came back from their skiing holiday last week and what did they do next? Went home to enjoy dinner together and they watched some DVDs…ok we are talking about royalty….but I wouldn’t say they are becoming middle aged just for a night in!!

The article was mentioning some warning signs about becoming a young fogey …let’s analyse them.

You are into Pinterest, and especially proud of that board in which you posted your favourite Le Creuset pots.

Hang on, I am into Pinterest now, my husband bought me a set of Le Creuset pots for my birthday and I did not post them on Facebook or Twitter (didn’t know about Pinterest in August)…but actually I did send that notorious picture of my new pots to my best friend…( I have the blue one, by the way!)

You can’t decide what to do for your birthday this year. If you want a weekend away you want to be walking distance to restaurants but not too close to clubs and drunk teenagers (FAIR ENOUGH).

Probably you will end up having a dinner with friends, take pictures of the food you ate (WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT????) and go home, have a drink and pass out on the sofa (NO I DON’T!)

Funny enough we will go in Italy for my birthday, on my parents house on the Italian Riviera, nice town with lots of nice bars and restaurants…but far away from clubs…who cares anymore? Rather stuff myself at dinner!

When shopping, you find yourself thinking that everything is too short. I don’t normally wear skirts so this problem does not affect me, but I do find more difficult buying stuff. I’d like to wear shorts, but I try them on and I think? Is that appropriate? Walking around town bare legs? What about if I can’t see but the cellulite is showing? Will people look at me in a funny way? Anyway it’s freezing in England so no way!!! Mmm….am I really getting old?

Before Christmas I wanted to change my hair, desperately, needed some changes after had my hair long and plain for so many years, wanted a long bob…did it…I was so happy.

But after a few days I felt the hairstyle makes me look more grown up, or just a bit middle aged. And I even felt more awkward last week when my best friend took out of her bag her camera with the pictures of us in Miami for my Bachelorette party…my heart sank, I miss my long hair!!! Not keen on extensions…too expensive and too Essex for my style…let’s just wait for my hair to grown.

My ideal weekend? Years ago was aperitif out, light dinner somewhere, and out clubbing until 3am, at least.

Now, have a drink somewhere, high heels or not? Mostly is not because we have to walk around and I cannot walk on high heels very well. Dinner somewhere? Great! I always drink and eat too much so as soon as we finish, my husband usually says: – Shall we go for another drink? Normally 10.30pm…my reply can vary, depending how cold it is and which shoes I am wearing.

If it’s freezing and probably I wear flat shoes: Not sure baby, if we go somewhere close to the car ok, if not let’s go back, it’s too cold.

If it’s not that cold and I wear high heels: Not sure baby, my feet hurt, can’t walk far and you will probably make me driving back…let’s go back, we have a drink at home.

Am I really growing old? Hope not!

Please don’t let it snow! I hate the snow and I’m very proud … Anna in her winter wonderland after the weekend

6 Feb

Reading all the posts in Facebook over the last few days was so boring, pictures of the snow, pictures of cars stuck in the snow, pictures of snowmen. Fine, fair enough if was snowing, but unfortunately, or luckily, I cannot stand the snow!

Snow makes me grumpy, snow makes me stuck at home (I want an Hummer as next car not a Smart anymore), snow makes me colder than normal, snow causes so many problems the day after when it gets icy, snow makes airports to cancel flights even before it starts to snow (a third of all flights were cancelled before a flake of snow had fallen at Heathrow Airport on Saturday…ridiculous!), snow makes governments to make plans to invest so much money of tax payers to have all the equipment ready in case the snow comes, and when it comes…trains, flights, motorways…all a mess!

Maybe I should say I have never been skiing in my life and I probably never will, but I’m still convinced that snow looks beautiful in a ski resort, lovely panorama…but don’t take me there please…do you know what? In 29 days I will be again in the Miami sunshine, where I belong…so from the 5th March onwards please snow as much as you like in the Kingdom…I cannot care less!

Shall I talk about something else? That’s better! The weekend is over, I couldn’t sleep last night due to a bad back pain and shoulder probably caused by my new gym lifestyle…2days after the workout! I took care of myself last night with ibuprofen, Chianti red wine and spoons of Nutella…after a dinner cooked by me but all the ingredients have been chopped before by my husband…sorted out one of our Christmas present with all the wedding pictures, moved some pictures around…and got grumpy and fed up by the snow…

Monday blues? No way! Have a good beginning of the week everyone!

Seeing green, everywhere!

26 Nov

My weekend so far has been cooking, running around, helping my husband to paint the kitchen, yeah we finally made it! The colour is called verde de terre…to me is a light and pretty green, that goes so well with my obsession!

More green for me…I had to do some gardening… (please don’t tell anyone but I cannot stand gardering), sorry but collecting leaves and put them on the other side of the garden, on a windy day, was a kind of difficult job to do…! Indian dinner for us tonight… The thing that made my weekend was a link sent over on Facebook from my friend Shonda….you see it yourself! Have a good weekend everyone!
