Feels like I have been beaten up, but that’s ok! First day at the gym

27 Jan

I must start saying that I have never been in a gym in all my life and I thought it was the right time to start. Put leggings on (can you believe it? Me with leggings), t-shirt, my converse and off I went, for the first training day. It was good, tried a few different machines, felt a bit sweaty and now my program is done, will I ever tone myself? To be continued!!!

Well…my gym has the spa next to, so I think I will work out and go to fall asleep in the Jacuzzi or having a massage after every work out….OMG…I love my life of leisure!!!!

Have a great weekend you all!!!

Back into business but I’d like to go back to the leisure….

25 Jan

I know that last week I said to the world that I was going to start to write a cooking book…yeah…well unfortunately I have been busy in the last few days that I haven’t had any spare time,  I have started I have to admit that…but I just wrote one recipe…and took some pictures! I have been back in office for 2 days but I will carry on my working leisure life, and I will work on it! I’m even going to visit a gym tomorrow can you believe it? Recently I’m loving my food so much…that’s why I need to work out…I’m not sexy and I know it….need to drop some weight!! Do you want to have  a look at my latest dinners? xxxx

A new beginning of life, or shall I say an upgrade? The modern housewife

23 Jan

Today I upgraded myself. I installed the new software, my brain has been updated. I upgraded myself to the proper HOUSEWIFE role, and I am happy. Working from home housewife, so I still work ( it does mean that I do something, not just a f*** all day long).

My husband could not believe to his eyes when still half asleep at 7.30AM saw me getting up and getting ready to go downstairs for breakfast – Are you sure you’re ok D? – he asked – Yes I am why? – It’s very strange seeing you awake this time in the morning!

Despite the “not go in office thing” I was relaxed, and happy to get up to do my things, go out, go shopping, sort the house, come back ,work, work, have some lunch, work, go out again, ironing, coffee, tea, biscuits, thinking about what to cook tonight….and the day went by….I am not bored and I’m happy! I feel like I can organise myself better with this kind of schedule…let’s see how long it last!!!

Modern approach to the lifestyle of an housewife? Why not!

Sunday, another lazy day in the countryside…I think I still have jet lag’s issues!

22 Jan

Sunday morning, and despite 4 noisy teenagers at home, we both slept until 10am…cannot believe my luck!

Breakfast on a Sunday morning…cappuccino, croissant, orange juice, and painting the kitchen.

Sunday lunch, one pub was too busy so we went to another one, and we enjoyed some good food and drinks (fuck the diet it’s the weekend)

Back home…ready to relax on the sofa with another drink…and what about tomorrow?

It’s just another manic Monday!!

Friday, ABSOLUTely dreaming to be in MIAMI…let’s enjoy the weekend!

20 Jan

An animated website made me feel like being back to Miami…well I do dream to be there full time so it wasn’t difficult for me thinking about how much I miss South Beach…too early on the day for a drink, but now I fancy an Absolut Miami cocktail at the Mondrian hotel…take me back there please! And everyone can dream with me clicking the link…dream with me!

(Ps: Absolut can I have a stock of bottles? they will look so good in our Miami condo!) 🙂

Have a good weekend to you all!!!

Recipe books and lifestyle resolution, what’s going on in my wonderland?

19 Jan

I’m feeling in a funny phase of my life at the moment. I’m 27, this year I will be 28, married, don’t want kids before 3 years time at least, I have a lovely husband that loves me so much, I have a family in Italy that would die for me and my happiness, I feel like travel all the time, I have lots of interested, I started to write this blog in august and I’m so happy about how much satisfaction it gives me, I am happy, I could not deny this fact, but…despite all, I still feel kind of “incomplete”, or not completely satisfy right now.

What can I do to spice up my life? I would like some changes, do something that will make me more enthusiast and passionate…I would even love being at home for a while just being an housewife full time, I would like to try to see how it will be like…despite after a few days I will feel so bored, I know myself! Or working more from home, at the end of the day once I have the laptop and the internet connection I can work from anywhere and no one needs to know!

But thinking about better, it would be good! I will maybe join the gym (never been in a gym in my life…I couldn’t do it if I work full time but if I will be more free…why not?), have breakfast with my husband in the morning, go to the gym, go shopping

(NOT CLOTHES SHOPPING…well maybe some days I can get the train to London…please anna focus!)

cleaning, washing, ironing, cooking….do you know what??? I should start to write a recipe book…no I’m not going mad thanks; I love to cook, so why not put on paper…or on Microsoft word my food creations? I’m a creative person when it comes to cook.

My husband if he has to cook follows a recipe without miss 1 gram of whatever goes in the recipe, I’m creative…so I need red onions to cook the Nigella’s recipe but I have only white onion with me? I’ll use the white it will be fine…my husband will tell me off!

Right…I’ll try this!! My husband after 3 years of my cooking is still alive without any health problem so I must be ok….will it work for me? Let’s see!

Anna in her wonderland cooking book from the heart of Northern Italy…Move over Nigella!

Sorry I’m already thinking too fast!

Time zones worldwide, where am I right now? In my wonderland!

18 Jan

Yes, it’s one of those days. No I haven’t got my period yet, I’m just on moaning mode, so I have warned you!

Nearly 5 days later the jet lag hasn’t abandoned me yet, feeling so awake when it’s time to go to sleep and feeling like I cannot wake up when it’s time to.

I think my body is in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) but my brain and my soul are still on Eastern Time (EST)!

I’m feeling so confused, so I tried to treat my body with some rays of light (from the sun bed shop not from Brighton beach, it’s raining and it’s grey, no one can see the sun!). I hate the wintery cold humidity, my hair after being out for 15minutes makes me look like a scarecrow, where’s gone my long bob made by my favourite gay French hairdresser??

Please wake me up when the spring is coming! Can’t face the sales either, in holiday I read the last book of my favourite writer, Sophie Kinsella, mini shopaholic, so every time I see a shop I feel like to buy everything! I’m not on my right size at the moment so it will be a waste of time and money to try on something…someone please cheer me up!

Insomnia, jet lag, sickness and pms…not a good way to start the week!

16 Jan

Let’s face it. It’s so cold, I wanted to cry when the alarm rang this morning, didn’t want leave the bed and let alone leave the house, got out, freezing cold and looks like it was snowing, arrived in station, trains delayed, and oh my god I want to go back home!

Please someone wake me up when the winter finishes!

It’s not a Funday today I’m afraid!

The only good thing about today is…I have been married for 6 months, happy anniversary to us! Sent some flowers to my husband at work…please do not say maybe they haven’t arrived yet!

8 Jan

Hello everyone,

Apparently I disappointed my mum because I didn’t post for a day…so I try to save myself with a last minute post before go out on a boat ride for the day!…well it was my plan but unfortunately the Wi-Fi wasn’t working today at the hotel!

So sorry about that…but for 2 days we didn’t have any wi fi at the resort, now finally it’s all sorted!

Loving the Barbados, loving the people, so friendly and so polite…the only thing is … there are too many Brits here and full English breakfast wasn’t my idea of a Caribbean breakfast!!!

Enjoy the pictures!!!
