Resources!

  Being at home on holiday and having no food team preparing the yummy dishes I’m afraid I’m now addicted to, didn’t stop me to prepare a nice breakfast.  When I’m on holiday or on the rare occasions when I have a bit of spare time I like to cook.  I’ve been preparing my hot…

Plan B!

  I’ve learned lately that you should always have a plan B.  Only people who know me better probably will understand this, but no worries, my dear readers, soon it will be clear for you too! I really want to get back and remember how to use this electric dictionary!

Work from home to back my back!

This is why I feel grateful, sometimes being able to work from home is handy.  Yesterday I woke to feel completely blocked with my back and my legs. I rested and I was cuddled by the family. Today, however, I decided to work from home; despite feeling better than yesterday, I ached a bit all…

Hello, alien!

“Maya, do you want strawberries?” “Yes, please!” “Umm, why don’t you eat some banana too?” “Only if you make a picture!” I growled a bit, it was still too early morning to be a Saturday and I honestly put the fruit randomly in the plate.  “Here! This is an alien, six eyes and a smile!”…

Last day of the week!

    I knew already that today, being in the other office, I wouldn’t have the caffeine free alternative I’m getting used to take. So, I stopped to my favorite coffee shop ever and I got a latte.  I haven’t been in there for ages. I started a new point card and the lad behind…

Love is in the air…

    Today was special and full of love! Sometimes I still find hard to believe I work in such a crazy office. Mind me, it’s intended as a huge compliment.  We’re above the schemes and the gray boredom surrounding whatever office you can think about when, well, you think of a standard office! Being…

Is he the fourth?

  Maybe I’ve repeated this too many times already, but I’m still trying to figure it out how lucky we are in my team to have three perfect gentlemen! I mean, someone who behaves like the heroes in the books I’ve always loved…how many chances I had to find not one, not two, but three…

Surprise!

  I love surprises, I really do! This morning I found these two beauties on my desk.  Chocolate, as sweets in general, is my Achille’s heel!  I’m also particularly grateful for the fact I work in such a multicultural environment, full of travel addicted people.  This chocolate in particular comes from Netherlands!  It was so…

It takes a village…

  This usually happens when we change Maya’s bed.  When we decided she was too big for her old bed and we changed it, we realized that the extra room was little by little filled by teddies.  Maya loves them and has a huge collection.  Usually when I try to talk her into leaving the…

Yarrr, let’s play!

    My partner received the game Catan as Christmas present. Maya, who has lately developed the love for board games, asked to play several times. Reading the instruction, however, we realized that the game would be too long and complicated for her. So this morning, while I was in work, they set off and…
