I left my heart on Lake Como….again!!!

17 Oct

Hello everyone I am very sorry but I couldn’t write over the weekend, I left my laptop at home intentionally to enjoy the time on Lake Como…and I really did!!!

My weekend started Friday morning when we landed at Milan Malpensa airport, my gorgeous niece and her granddad where there to wait for me. How lovely to see again my beautiful 16 months old Martina, and her panda of course! After this quick meeting we got our rental car, the same smart I have in the UK, even the same colour and we headed to the lake!!! It has been cold, very cold this weekend and I wasn’t prepared for that, not enough warm clothes with us and I just managed to buy a long jumper/dress…I was aiming to a pair of Christian Loubotin ankle boots but the price tag unfortunately was too high for the Collins!!!  Lots of food, lots of friends around and lots of walking!!! I was so excited when on Friday afternoon we drove to Laglio, I saw George Clooney’s house!! I know I’m such a tourist sometimes but I really needed to see it, amazing villa, but very small and silent town, and I left my heart there again, what a beautiful panoramas around the lake area!

The weekend went down well, apart when I had a panic attack when my friends during the Sunday race flipped the boat…I got so scared! Luckily nothing serious happened and they are both ok, I’m not used anymore to the powerboat racing environment…it was good to be back in again after a while! Here we are some pictures… see you soon again Lake Como!


Busy day but my week is over!

13 Oct

I have been arguing all day with the Vodafone customer service, I could not believe the rudeness of some people and the politeness of others… I’d like something in between please! Blackberry now is working but I’m still using the old device because the new one is fucked up, new software is good but the phone doesn’t support it very well….so…don’t let me go into again! Back home, back to brighton, dinner for two, two suitcases to pack and a very early night…as if I could fall asleep at 9pm…tomorrow morning at 5.30 we are off to Italy for the weekend, not my hometown this time…we are going to cernobbio, lake como, actually the clooney side of the lake, I cannot wait!!! Probably I won’t be able to update the blog day by day, sorry about that I will do a better version on monday with lots of pictures!!! Well…I wish (a bit early) a good weekend to everyone!! X

PS: just came back from Brighton, we discovered a place where they sell every type of cheese….. so we enjoyed a big cheese platter and a bottle of red wine, and of course I had to drive back home…but I’m here, so all it’s good!!!
