Types of blog I love

In my last post, I answered two of the main questions I’m asked about blogging: why do you blog? Is it not too personal? As I promised there, here I would like to list some topics I like to read about in other blogs. I’m not going to list specific blogs, but rather summarise on…

“Why do you blog?”

A couple of people recently came to me with the same questions: “Why do you blog? Is it not too personal?” I started thinking about the reasons why I write and share some of my personal experiences and thoughts and feelings both with people I know and also with a huge potential number of complete…

32/56 Snow days

This couple of snow days have been a blessing. I don’t like snow at all, but I have to admit this time I have to thank it. Even though I risk to get something broken every time I leave home, or even though now everything will turn into grey slush. Last Sunday, February 25th, I officially…

5/56 Crashed on a sunny day

Today I had so many different little moments with many different big feelings. I cleaned the house, and fell suddenly so much better. And it was a full sunny day! Not a shower! You already know I’m not particularly hungry for the sun, but obviously the cats were. They had a lot of meetings in…

My Word of my year

In the last few years, around December or January, everyone seems to start looking for their own word of the year. This key word states the main new year’s goal, which is usually an attitude, a feeling, or a habit. I even heard about different methods and tests to find your word, and sometimes this…

Befana vs Little Christmas

The 6th of January is an interesting date in both Ireland and Italy. It surely marks the end of the Christmas season, and I think it’s time for me too to put aside the decorations that this year I particularly enjoyed. Why is this day special? Let’s start from Ireland. Here, the feast of the…

New Year’s Eve in Lisdoonvarna

Everybody knows it’s usually not good to speak too soon. But sometimes we are so positive about something, that we forget about it. Luckily, life is always ready to send us a reminder. This note from life came to me on New Year’s Eve, after I had spent all day repeating how great 2017 had…

A name is (just) a name

  If you read my previous post, “On a Cold and Rainy Night”, you would already know that I have found a little helper this Christmas. Well, she found me really. So, when I asked her to tell me her name, she replied she didn’t have one. She explained that, being an animal, she doesn’t…

Once Upon an October

October highlight was the trip to Prague! My friend Rosy (travelling from Rome) and I met at our holiday destination for the Halloween Bank Holiday weekend. The best way to meet your friends from home when you live far! Travelling in the evening and leaving again in the morning, we had two full days to…

#loseaminute

Since when I left Italy and started living and working in Ireland, my mind expanded and my old thinking patterns shrank. What do I mean by that? Well, first of all, that human beings get used to better life quality and tend to consider it normal. But we never forget what was before, and why…
