It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, an Italian Christmas!!! Love being home surrounded by family and friends and off to Miami with my husband in 3 days!

24 Dec

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
Take a look in the five-and-ten, glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Toys in every store,
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

Do you feel the festive spirit? Do you feel the love in the air? I do and I am so happy to breathe an Italian Christmas again! I have been back since Thursday and I have been non-stop as usual and I am looking forward to celebrate tonight with friends and to celebrate tomorrow with the family, Happy Christmas everyone…now some pictures of the past few days!

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!

Back in the country…and we are leaving again!
