Post vacation resolutions, wellington boots, the countryside and Happy Father’s day to my dad in Italy! An ordinary Monday in Sussex

19 Mar

Today is a gorgeous day in the countryside, the sun is shining, last night the temperature dropped again below zero but now you can only see the sun in a clear sky…completely different panorama than Miami but breath-taking in the same way!

I’m still struggling with the jet lag, I had to take sleeping tablets at for the past couple of nights, I tried a few times to count the sheep to sleep but apparently it doesn’t work for me…hopefully soon my biological clock will go back to Greenwich time!

Saturday was Saint Patrick’s Day, Sunday was Mother’s day in England, today is Father’s day in Italy…it’s confusing all these celebrations! Last night we had my mother in law for dinner to celebrate British Mother’s Day and my husband made an amazing roast beef, so that’s the proof that even English people can cook something more than fish&chips…

Today I’m trying to catch up a bit with work and everything after have been away: for some strange reason every time I come back home from holiday it feels like new year to me, you will probably wonder why…but every time, I create a post-holiday resolution, and this time I did it again.

My post-holiday resolution this time is:

Lose weight (I had the same must in the previous resolution but I lost only 800grams, which I put it back on, with interests, so still one mission to accomplish).

Find a creative part time or full time job to do….wedding planner, translator, writer…I don’t know but I need to feed my brain a bit more.

Start to learn Spanish. I feel so left out in Miami where 90% of the people speak Spanish…I’d like to have a least a basic knowledge of the language, not satisfied to know only two languages at the moment, I want more.

Start seriously to write a recipe book. I had this resolution in my previous list, I have started…but I still have a long way to go.

Anything else? I can’t think about anything else at the moment, but I think I have a few missions to focus on to keep myself busy for a while.

Do you like to see a different view for once? I put my wellies on and I walked for an hour in the fields, what an amazing feeling to feel the spring coming, luckily without hay fever yet!

Sunshine, wind, boats, rough sea, red skin…the vacation is nearly over…damn!

13 Mar

The time in Miami just goes so fast that I can’t keep up, I feel like someone is making my watch going faster than normal, trying to enjoy every single moment because soon it’s going to be over, don’t want to go back home! Talking about stealing my time, I did not know that the clock was changing this Sunday just gone. Woke up, 9am, I thought we slept longer than normal, checked my watch, oh stupid watch it stopped an hour ago!!! Kim’s watch the same…and we got more confused. Got in the car, the time was different again…we stopped a guy : Excuse me…what time is it? Did the clock change last night? YEP….he probably thought Stupid Foreigners!

Been boating around Miami, further up and down again to the sandbanks close to Key Biscayne…and unfortunately yesterday just after fill the boat up with fuel  something broke…back to the marina and bye bye boat see you in 6 weeks after she gets repaired!

Been again to our favourite local restaurant, Barceloneta, I love the food there as you can see from the following pictures! I promise I will keep the blog more updated when I go back home, here I’m still struggling with the internet connection…shame I won’t have much to say when I will be back! I don’t want to think about now…the only thing I am looking forward to is go back to visit my friend who just had a baby today, congratulations to Becki and Jonny and Imogen…I cannot wait to meet you!!!
