Another blog

This is just do you know that I'm not going to set up another blog.
I'm happy without a blog, at the moment.

I've lost my password to access to this blog. Well, I haven't lost it but I did change it a while ago. 
I thought I was on the safe side as -from my laptop- I could open blogger without entering the password every single time. Moreover, I could -and still can- access from my iPhone.
A few days ago I opened a new google account and blogger changed the settings so it seems that I have to enter a password I don't remember in order to get access to my blog.
I'm now writing for my mobile as I don't have to write a password here.
I can't retrieve the password as they are going to send it to the email address which is my username account to access the blog!
Let me think how to deal with it and I'll get back to you soon...

Long weekend

Hi guys,
I haven't written much lately. I haven't updated the blog at all, to be honest. I've been extremely busy and -at the end of busy days- the last thing I want to do is writing... again. 

Anyway, it's a long weekend here and we're going to Val d'Ayas, Aosta Valley. Not that I'm particularly fond of mountains but we know a very nice place to stay there and I'm in the mood for walking in nature. I desperately need a couple of days with G. We need quality time together: no dog, no parents, just us. Nature is a plus for me... being allergic to big cities and having spent long days in Milano. Time for me to forget about everything -especially work- and focus on G. , nature and good food. Another benefit of the place we're going to stay is the spa. They have a small spa. I've been longing for a massage for a long time now!  

We'll be off to Val d'Ayas in a few hours and we'll be staying untile Sunday evening, I guess. 

Have a great weekend!

I like September because is the month of the "plans". Well, for me it's the time of the year when I start thinking about ways of getting less stressed, feeling better etc. I'm not particularly good at sticking with these kind plans except for Pilates which I'm going to start in a couple of weeks. 
This year I want to set up some sort of rules and/or habits before it's too late (read: stressed out).
  1. don't check my emails before 8 a.m. (or before breakfast). I often work at home which is tricky because I tend to check emails when I get up in order to ged rid of (part) of them. This causes stress though as sometimes I wake up quite early thinking about emails or things that I have to do. This has to stop. Take this morning. I woke up and 7, it's 8:18 and I haven't checked my email yet which is usual for me. I am feeling good and I'm about to start my working day in a relaxing mood. I haven't checked twitter & haven't switched on my iphone which is even better. I'll switch everything on in 10 minutes. 
  2. decide a regular habit of work. Again, working at home is difficult as there's no schedule as such. You can even have lunch while working or working after dinner, why not? Usually I don't work right before or after dinner. This is my time with G. However, I do sometimes work while having lunch IF I feel there's a need for extra work. I have to stop it, it's not even healthy.

Not my lucky days

After the germs, I split my lower lip! Can you believe it?
I was running after Orlando in the garden and fell down.
I am fine now but  I went to the hospital to check that everything was ok and I wish I didn't. We waited for more than 4 hours (from 9:30 until 2:00 a.m!) and when the E.R. doctor had a look at my lips said: "you waited for 4 hours, right? Good, now the cut doesn't need stitches"
"yes, at this stage we can't sew it back together as it is healing and it's too swollen"
"It's healing already, don't worry"

If, on the one hand, it was true and I was glad about it, on the other one shouldn't be left bleeding for 4 hours in the hope that eventually the cut will heal in a place FULL of germs. Sorry but there's no other way to describe an E.R.

Anyway...these are not my lucky days ;-)

I don't dream in winter

which is probably not true. I dream but I don't remember my dreams. I've been having a lot of vivid dreams lately. Quite bizarre dreams that I tend forgetting as the day unfolds. They are "there" - in my brain, in my gut -  in the morning while I am still lying in my bed or having breakfast. Then the real obscures the illusions of the night which is a real shame as I love my dreams. I wish I had written them all down. They would have been my little secret world, something that would have belong to me only. Unfortunately, I haven't and they are lost forever.
