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…

A refreshing day

First day of fresh air after weeks of horrible heat, and I start functioning again. My life was in stand-by mode for a while. Too long, actually. (Apart from the 5 most fantastic days spent in Rome with Mr J. I’ll tell you again about it) Recently, I don’t know exactly how and why, I…

Insomnia

In the last couple of weeks I have been suffering from a very bad form of insomnia. I have never really slept well since I moved to this new apartment, but it became worse and worse. I remember experiencing something like this only once before, 4 years ago, before I left Italy. Last week, I…

7/56 A wrong day

Number 7 was once supposed to be a lucky one. Not today. Not for me. At work, I had to attend the longest workshop ever, and late morning I started having some belly cramps. After work, I went to see 2 houses. The first one was one of many apartments lined on more floors with…

6/56 Oops, I forgot myself

Yesterday, on my most lazy day, I realized that for just a few days I had forgotten about my good habits, and my body and mind where reminding me of that. I felt confused of course, without any energy, feeling fatter already, my back was starting to ache again, my stomach got cramps, and had…

#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…

Once upon an August

Mr J says I’m hypochondriac. I say that this is quite true, but I became one in the last couple of years or so. Italians living here say that Italian doctors are better. I say that I have experienced the same amount of bad and good both here in Ireland and in Italy. About three…

A delicious seasons cocktail!

The first time I’ve heard that here in Ireland spring starts on the 1st of February, I was startled. I have always traditionally connected this mid season to the first beautiful days of the year, and February for me was still winter. Having been living here for about four years, I had to adapt to…

Once upon a February

Here I am again telling you about what I’m glad to have learnt from February. In my opinion, there is always a way to see two opposite faces of absolutely everything that happens in our life. Sometimes an experience can be so negative, that realizing it might feel impossible. And yet I’m sure there is…

When my right hand died

  Do you know that time of the year when you feel the flu is running towards you and you have to find a safe way to hide from it? When you wake up feeling shitty and you decide to ignore any symptoms and go to work. Because you are more stubborn than that flu….
