Day 1 to 9!

Maya loves Lego.  This year we got her the Lego Friends Advent Calendar.  This way she would have something that last longer and avoid a bit of sugar!  I support the concept of Lego as educative play method.  These are the surprises for the first 9 days of the month!

Maya’s speed….

…in joining whatever crazy or absurd I suggest is amazing.  Now, I understand if you told me that all the kids are like that. Most of all, I’d understand whether you’d scold me saying that I should be to one to grow up.  However, I have to say that I’ve met kids very boring. Kids…

Keep working!

My team is awesome! Yes, I’m saying it again and I’m saying it loud! I’m not saying this because it’s my team, I’m saying because it’s true.  My team is so awesome that sometimes other people come to sit with us and have so much fun that they come back.  Today was the turn of…

And the third is out!

Another milestone for Maya! Yesterday she went to the dentist with her third tooth wobbling. I sent her over as it started hurting and also bleeding a bit.  Better safe than sorry as you say, right?  So she went to the dentist with her dad. She was more confident this time and the session was…

Memories

This morning I was listening my favorite radio program on the way to work.  It’s a silly program, light enough to start a heavy day and I’m very grateful to the speakers, a group made of three friends who are direct and funny and entertaining.  This morning they interviewed one of my favorite actors when…

Details…

  I’m aware you might know by heart the surroundings of my office, but I cannot stop being surprised by the beauty of the early morning.  When I left my house, was still dark and the thing that caught my eyes was the beautiful thin slice of moon and the bright star beside it.  I…

Thinking and planning!

  Everybody who knows me, even not that well, is aware I love ships and the sea.  During my recent travel by train, I’ve got the opportunity of discovering a beautiful place built literally on the water.  I was looking outside the window when we went through Rapallo and the area around it, on the…

Missing Halloween!

Maya once told me: “Mum, I wish it was Halloween all year long. We can keep Christmas and St. Patrick, but then the rest should be Halloween!” I kinda agree with her, as Halloween is my favorite period too. So today, while searching the wardrobe for something, we’ve found this crackers we forgot and decided…

When you get there….

We should all be honest with ourselves and admit our weaknesses.  Mine is linked with food…like you hadn’t realized already.  So, everybody knows Italian pizza, which has been destroyed in so many ways all over the world.  However, fewer people know focaccia, which is – let’s put it this way – pizza’s cousin! Not everybody…

Before and after!

Despite having an important airport only 30 minutes far from my mum’s house, this time I had to use the one in Milan and then get a train home. Since I love reading, although being tired for the long travel and not sleepy, I had the opportunity to read a lot. Well, a lot compared…
