The ordinary day of an aspiring housewife during Christmas time

14 Dec

Get up at 8.15am, have a shower, have breakfast, getting ready to go to work. Drive to the station and find out there is no room left in the car park I pay 50 pounds a month to park my little Smart. (Watch out you guys working for the National Railway…revenge will come soon…) Decide to not to go to the office in Brighton and work from home. Pit stop in WHSmith to buy some Christmas cards, stamps and some magazines. Go back home. Start to do some wrapping for the last Christmas presents I got through the shopping online. The wrapping took me nearly 2 hours for 5 presents…I AM USELESS AT WRAPPING, I should blame my mum, she’s so good at and she didn’t teach me how to!!! Hoover time, and it’s 12.30. Get my car, notice that my car has been scratched yesterday….probably my fault…well it must be my fault no one else drives it! Go to see my gorgeous husband for lunch, go out with him and so kindly he buys for me a Saint Lucia’s present, a babyliss hair straightener.

Going back home, doing some work, doing some twitter and facebook, reading the daily mail online while drinking a cup of earl grey tea.It’s raining, and the sun is shining at the same time.

My friend and her gorgeous daughters come over to see me, more tea and more gossip. Once they have gone, Time to play around with my new hair straightener….and took some silly pictures of it.

Starting to cook dinner for my husband and a friend of us, starting to drink beer. Doing the mash potatoes, forgot to cut the potatoes before boiling them…Had a smoky good dinner with venison sausages, mash potatoes and courgette and aubergine.

Drinking red wine with it. My husband realises that he has to drop our friend back to the station, but he has already had too much to drink. So wife, you and your Italian driving licence, can you drive him back? Of course darling – while sipping my wine – let’s go! Back from the drive, still drinking my red wine…love being an housewife!!!

Have a good day you all

All you need is love…and comfort pub food!

8 Dec

After all my bad adventures of yesterday morning, I really enjoyed my day pampering up myself, I’m still very happy with my new lady-like haircut, I think I should find a name for it…well later on…the day couldn’t have gone better, I have an interview booked for next week, yes finally luck is coming on my side!

To finish the day in the perfect way, we went out for dinner with friends in a pub I have never been before and I really enjoyed! A mix between a pub and a fancy bar…it was great, busy, warm, nice atmosphere and good food…what do you want more? Well…a bottle of red and rose please!

(After dinner I had to drive back home of course…the fact that I have an Italian driving licence and I drive in England does not justify my drinking…sorry about that!) 😉

2 love in my life, my husband and chorizo!

loving comfort food, sausages and mash!

and the cheese board never disappoint!

Break the tradition…just like that!

30 Nov

Winter evenings, countdown to Christmas, red wine, the blanket on the sofa, trash TV on, as usual, what else do we need to enjoy a pleasant cold evening? Some old good comfort food! It has been a while since my last Sunday Roast, and even longer for my husband, so in the past two weekends we tried to go for a pub lunch to enjoy a roast but due to a series to umpredictable events we weren’t able to make it, so why not have a Roast Dinner on a Tuesday night? it was good and delicious, plus I didn’t need to cook, Kim did!

Yeah…it was good!

Happy birthday to my Mum-in-Law, we are going to celebrate tonight at home with another homemade dinner by my husband again, looks like I’m on cooking strike 😉

– 2 days to our weekend in Venice

-20 to go back home for Christmas

-28 to Miami and Barbados!

I woke up with this song in my mind today, and because of Tinie Tempah I remembered one of our last holiday in March with friends, where we met him!

Becky, Tinie and me @ Surfcomber pool party – SoBe

My husband and I – moijto time!

Out for dinner, at joe’s stone crab

God I miss Miami so much!

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!!!
