A very warm weekend is over, feeling depraved of an hour of my life!

26 Mar

It was a lovely and warm weekend in the countryside, I couldn’t believe my luck of being sat on one of the chairs I have been working on for the past few days in the garden! I have been doing gardening recently, can you believe it, I still struggle myself! The garden furniture are looking brand new after my jet washing, sanding and oiling…shame that doing that I broke a pot!! Shall we see some pictures? Why not!

poor pot…rip

experimenting new flavors, beetroot and creme fraiche soup

3 mushrooms risotto and peas…mmmm

Friday afternoon driving down to Brighton, horrible sea mist

Saturday night down to Canterbury for dinner…interesting toilets!

I have always known I am fiery!

Driving around the countryside on a Sunny Sunday

and what can be better than a few drinks in the sun and a pub lunch?

Post vacation resolutions, wellington boots, the countryside and Happy Father’s day to my dad in Italy! An ordinary Monday in Sussex

19 Mar

Today is a gorgeous day in the countryside, the sun is shining, last night the temperature dropped again below zero but now you can only see the sun in a clear sky…completely different panorama than Miami but breath-taking in the same way!

I’m still struggling with the jet lag, I had to take sleeping tablets at for the past couple of nights, I tried a few times to count the sheep to sleep but apparently it doesn’t work for me…hopefully soon my biological clock will go back to Greenwich time!

Saturday was Saint Patrick’s Day, Sunday was Mother’s day in England, today is Father’s day in Italy…it’s confusing all these celebrations! Last night we had my mother in law for dinner to celebrate British Mother’s Day and my husband made an amazing roast beef, so that’s the proof that even English people can cook something more than fish&chips…

Today I’m trying to catch up a bit with work and everything after have been away: for some strange reason every time I come back home from holiday it feels like new year to me, you will probably wonder why…but every time, I create a post-holiday resolution, and this time I did it again.

My post-holiday resolution this time is:

Lose weight (I had the same must in the previous resolution but I lost only 800grams, which I put it back on, with interests, so still one mission to accomplish).

Find a creative part time or full time job to do….wedding planner, translator, writer…I don’t know but I need to feed my brain a bit more.

Start to learn Spanish. I feel so left out in Miami where 90% of the people speak Spanish…I’d like to have a least a basic knowledge of the language, not satisfied to know only two languages at the moment, I want more.

Start seriously to write a recipe book. I had this resolution in my previous list, I have started…but I still have a long way to go.

Anything else? I can’t think about anything else at the moment, but I think I have a few missions to focus on to keep myself busy for a while.

Do you like to see a different view for once? I put my wellies on and I walked for an hour in the fields, what an amazing feeling to feel the spring coming, luckily without hay fever yet!

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!
