These are the signs I have been in one place for too long… In England for example, please get me out of here!

27 Oct

I think in the past few years I developed Gipsy brain, I need to change, to not get stuck into a daily boring routine…so anything that keeps me “trapped” into a routine drives me mad and makes me angry and I think, I just need to get the hell out of here!

After a month and few days at home I start to feel these symptoms…

I hate every other weekend go for dinner to a curry house/Indian restaurant…I have started to believe British people suffer of constipation so that’s why every weekend they want to…feel free again. Why can’t we go one weekend to a steak house and the week after maybe for a pizza and the one after, who knows just not plan it now!

I hate to admit this but I  have become obsessed with TV series, soap opera or reality show that keeps you “want to know what happens next”. Right now I am obsessed to know what’s next in Eastenders, British soap opera set in East London…will Ben leave jail? Will Janine come back to Michael? Will Sayd and Christian live happy ever after?

This is so wrong.

I hate think about I have to go to the gym, I need to get fit, I have to go in a least three times a week to achieve some results…I hate plan even this. I always think: I am leaving tomorrow and I want to look good…I do know it ain’t going to happen if I go for a workout once a week or every ten days…and always the day before going in holiday! Bikini test…failed.

I hate to go shopping and get the seasons confused…why I can find just coats and winter jackets in the stores?! I need a bikini and more flips flops…ops wrong timing!

Probably this trip to Miami again will make me go into a routine over there…no way in 10 days I can’t even recover from jet lag, let alone have things planned in advance…

Happy Halloween to everyone…I will keep you posted on how it will go over there!

10 reasons why I’m not British and I probably never will

10 Dec

I don’t mean to offend anyone or to upset anyone, please do not take this post in the wrong way.

I have been living in England for 3 years and there are still so many things that make me so different from British girls, the ones I see walking up and down the high street…just take it like

 The vision of an Italian grumpy cow about Britain…

 10 reasons why I’m not British and I probably never will

1. I don’t stand outside a pub at 5PM on a Friday in December drinking lager, smoking a rolled up cigarette, wearing tracksuit and a vest, when it’s only 4degrees C (or 39 degrees F )

2. I don’t go out on Friday or Saturday night during the winter wearing only a Lipsy dress with a clutch bag and peep toe shoes (my outfit could be more likely to be jeans, leggings underneath, socks, another pair of socks, long sleeve t-shirt, jumper, jacket, scarf, and I will be still so brave to claim I’m cold!) See the daily mail article (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2067391/Why-DO-young-women-dressed-like-We-meet-nightclubbers-unsettling-answer.html)

3. I’d rather go for a sun bed sometimes and risk being wrinkly by 30, but I will never go for a spray tan! It stinks, it makes you look orange and plus after you have it done you cannot have a shower for 24 hours to get the colour to settle…it stinks to me!

4. I still don’t get the passion for Indian food or Chinese food, both mess up my stomach a lot!

5. I don’t think beans, cheese or whatever you like, followed by On toast, can be considered a meal!

6. Don’t get why until 18 years old people cannot drink, I started at 14 and by 18 I was bored to! It could save so many lives have a better drinking education, not wait to be 18 and get wasted every weekend throwing up everywhere in the high street outside clubs, thinking about East street in Brighton on a Friday night…

7. I don’t want to go clubbing in London, for god’s sake why all the clubs are on the basement?!? Claustrophobia rules my life!

8. I do not shop in Topshop! British sizes don’t fit me properly, different body shape from Italians and British girls, and luckily I’m not 11stone like the average Brits (from a recent survey, all my British friends are thin and glamorous)

9. I like to shop in Primark, just picking up the right bits to mix with designer accessories… I do not fill up the basket with all the crap just because it’s so cheap!

10. I hate leggings…as you all know from one of my previous post!

That’s why I’m LOUD AND PROUD to be Italian, with my pros and cons!!

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!

 

I surrender…

17 Sep

I couldn’t believe I slept 13 hours last night, when I woke up at 12.10 I thought, where am I? What time is it? Which side of the Atlantic am I right now? And after I saw out of the window the fields and the rain and I understood I’m back home unfortunately! After a very late start of the day, I made nice and simple pasta for lunch (or brunch, or breakfast whatever you want to call it),  we had a nice family day out looking at cars to buy for me next year when my beloved Smart (sigh) will go back to the Smart dealer… A3 convertible, A1 or TT coupe…I just want a car to drive around, I don’t pretend nothing too fancy!

The day started a bit chilli, well I mean from 12 pm on it wasn’t very nice but around 5pm got a bit better and sunny so I took some pictures in the sunny garden, what a big difference between the panorama here and in Miami Beach! From havaianas flip flops to Ugg boots, BIG DIFFERENCE!!

Traditional Saturday night today…Indian dinner out tonight, as the kids like it, blockbuster movies and I hope another 12 hours sleep!!! Have a great weekend you all.
