Thoughts on homeschooling

I’ve been thinking to write a post on homeschooling for a long time. Since the beginning of the pandemic, children were requested the great effort to study from home for weeks and sometimes, as the case of Ireland, for months. As parents, we were requested to teach them and help them to cope with lessons…

This is my world…

…literally. Inside this folder there is my whole fantasy world, built in details. It’s far from being totally completed, there are some elements still missing and some other to be corrected and changed. However, my archipelago is almost ready to host as many stories I’ll be able to think about. Some are already drafted, some…

Story time!

I would love to tell you a story: Once upon a time there was a person called Tom, not very special, not particularly beautiful or talented but with a good heart. This person had the misfortune of getting ill with a nasty disease which might bring him to his death. The doctor, a brave middle…

Happy Easter!

I want to wish a Happy Easter and happy holiday to all my readers! Although being forced far from my family of origin from March of last year, I celebrated with my own family here in the house…still in lockdown! Despite not being in an ideal situation, I realize that I’m also very lucky. I…

Karate – 2nd part!

This was supposed to be the following post about karate I meant to write after my introduction! Since time has passed you might want to go and have a quick read of the old blog! This post might not be needed, but considering that Karate is the only thing keeping me sane in this mad…

Franny’s loading…

I haven’t written much lately, I know, but I keep thinking of my dear blog! Little by little I’m building a routine that I hope would suit my messy life so I’ll be able to write more other than studying Japanese, managing the house and so on. Also, from the beginning of the year many…

Karate - 空手

  Last Saturday, I faced karate grading with Maya and we both passed! Now we’re yellow belt! But let’s start from the beginning, as I’m aware that talking about karate out of the blue can be a tad confusing. This is probably the post I was looking forward to writing the most since I got…

Getting inspired!

    The second and last thing I have to do before I move on is to express some gratitude! From time to time I’m greatly inspired by someone and then I start doing something I love.  For example, over ten years ago, I started blogging following the lead of a dear friend who owned…
