Hello readers

As you can see sometimes I come back to update my blog, last week it was the first week at home after the Miami vacation and I had to sort myself out with the time zone and I had to get back into the puppy routine once again, which it was pleasant but hard as well!

Yesterday some snow fell and I took some pictures with Coco in the garden, but by 6pm last night the south west of England (mostly Brighton area) was completely covered in snow, my poor husband had to drive 5 miles to come home, it took him 2 hours and 10 minutes, can you believe it? I woke up to probably 10 cm of snow in the garden…oh my!!! Snow in March does not seem right to me, probably because I hate snow at any time of the year anyway!  I am going to show you some pictures from the past few days, a fun day in London with good Italian friends, some baking….plus some snaps of Coco Chanel…she is growing so much!!!

I live in a frozen wonderland, please temperatures increase a bit! A frosty weekend in the countryside!

11 Feb

When I woke up this morning it was -5 C, or if you prefer 23 F…it was bitter! Sunny and beautiful day but not that pleasant to be outside, even if we were around shopping! I discovered a town I have never been before not far from where we live, nice high street plus I discovered a good restaurant called Cau, Argentinian steakhouse in the heart of Guildford , a nice burger and a good beer always make me warm!!!

I fancied going out for dinner tonight but it’s already below freezing and I really don’t fancy going out with leggings, jeans, long sleeves t-shirt, jumper, scarf, woolly hat, gloves, Ugg boots…not really a glamorous outfit is it? Luckily I’m not British… I don’t brave the cold with a mini dress and high heels…I’ll leave this to the Essex girls…!! As you can see someone is really that crazy I am not making this up…Maria from Towie…bless you…in a cold and flu way! Pictures from the Daily Mail on line

Night in then…what did I cook last night? Someone has been rude, I made a mushroom’s soup and as you can imagine the colour does not look inviting…but tasty! And spaghetti with prawns garlic tomatoes and green chillies, really spiced up my evening!

Keep on enjoying the weekend please!

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!
