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!”…

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…

Busy afternoon!

Today was definitely too cold to go out, so we decided to come back home and work on the to do list! Plus Maya had to do her homework. I’m still at the very first stage of planning, but I hope I’m on the right way. I’m trying to be more organized and I hope…

Maya and mum afternoons!

And finally, after the Christmas break, I started again my mum and Maya’s afternoons. Today we went to buy her friend’s birthday present and then to eat a snack at the KFC. Since Maya tried the pop corn chicken at the airport in Manchester, she loved them and wanted to try them again. Although I…

Nostalgic games!

When we went home for Christmas, we spent a couple of nights playing with friends.  We’ve alway been part of this nerd community of ours and we really do miss our friends we left in Italy.  Since we all we wanted a relaxed night, we met in F. and R.’s house and we played Hero…

Work from home! Again!

And again I worked from home! After only one week back in work I needed badly some rest. I still needed to complete my week though. Hence I worked from home; this let me wake up later and work in my pyjama! The tight routine I have doesn’t let me sleep more than 6 hours…

Happy birthday, Maya!

Happy birthday to my little one, she turned 7 today.  It’s incredible how fast they grow, these kids!  We held the party at Imaginosity, which is a museum for kids, and it was absolutely amazing.  Maya was over the moon!  

Recovering

  I’ve been home for a few days now and I feel a tad better, although I still cannot eat as a proper human being.  My strength is still below normal and I hope to recover enough in the next few days so to go to work the last two days of this 2018.  Then…

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!
