All day on my Hello Kitty gown…not what I planned for my Monday!

30 Jan

Really not what I planned to do today, this cold and flu seem like they don’t feel like to abandon me and despite all my good intentions, got up reasonably early (before 8am) breakfast, cleaning, tiding, shower, work…I started to feel not well at all.

Lots of tea, lots of tissues and lots of sneezing and the Hello Kitty dressing gown over my clothes to keep me warm, drowsiness I hate you!

Thinking about our dinner tonight, it’s going to be a lamb shepherd’s pie and hope to be stronger tomorrow…who said Italian people cannot cook British food? I’ll show you!!!!

Have a good evening!

I’m living in an Italian winter wonderland! Christmas is so close!!!

24 Dec

So close to Christmas that I still cannot believe, everyone is still running around to get the last minute presents for friends, family, ect, I witnessed to this yesterday afternoon walking along Via Venti Settembre (street 20th September, Bergamo), it was so busy , but people are brave, facing the cold and walking up and down with lots of bags!

On my way back I stopped to my aunt floral shop, transformed for the festive season in a winter wonderland…I love it!

You can even see my mum in the background 🙂

And what better than a massive cup of tea to finish off my wonderful day on a winter wonderland?

Alice in wonderland inspired cup of tea for me!!! Earl grey, with  a drop of milk…so British!

Christmas eve…I want only relax and enjoy my family today, on the notes of Michael Buble Christmas cd, present for my dad!

LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW

Happy Christmas eve and happy Christmas to everyone!!!

Everyone loves some early Christmas presents!

16 Dec

It’s Thursday the 15th December (well it’s actually the 16th when everyone will read this post), 10 days to Christmas, and the town is desert, how crazy is that? I spent 5 hours in office without take my lunch break so I could go out earlier to meet up with my husband to finish off some unfinished business…the latest Christmas presents for the family!!

I can’t believe that Brighton was so empty today around the shops in the lanes, ok the credit crunch, the recession, the Eurozone, Italian economy going downhill like Greece…but come on it’s Christmas it happens just once a year! Make the people you love happy and make the retailers even happier! I love my husband so much: he’s loving, caring, and with an amazing taste (he cannot be British I swear!!!) today I got my Christmas present from him, a gorgeous pair of dark brown leather and fur All Saints boots…when my best friend Anna will see them she will collapse!!

Love to get Christmas presents before Christmas; it makes me feel so excited! I cannot reveal the Christmas present I got for my hubby for obvious reasons (he reads my blog) but I tell you they will be LV related, can’t say anything else! Last night I got some more early Christmas presents from my mother in law, love the selection of different teas, the mini rose champagne, the pink truffles, the Cowshed products…oh my I’m like a child on Christmas day, but I’m not a child anymore, and it’s not Christmas yet!!!

It has been two weeks since we met up for dinner with our friends Joe and Becky when the invited us over for a lovely homemade dinner, I have just been so busy that I didn’t have the time to post the pictures yet! Joe…your Thai green curry was good, but your baileys cheesecake as out of this world!!!

Happy Friday to everyone!

3 cups of tea a day to keep the doctor away!!!

10 Oct

It wasn’t a good day for me today, some cups of earl grey tea later, an “homemade” manicure and a pedicure and Sex and the City the movie…some tears later (I don’y know why but SATC always makes me emotional!) I feel a bit better, for some strange reason this TV series makes me think all the time about my friends, we have grown up together watching this and every single episode is alway connected to our own mood, how great is that? sometimes is tears, sometimes is laughter, but everytime is good and it makes you feel good!!! Still hoping in the third film….this is for you all!!!
