And that’s a wrap for … July

Why are the months flying by so fast?! Slow down, Father Time! FFS! So, July. Things at the other half’s job went from worse to much-much worse and he handed in his notice at the start of the month. If all goes well he will be signing a contract with another company this week and…

And that’s a wrap for … May!

May didn’t quite turn out the way we had expected. The other half had two weeks off work and we had some plans. Nothing set in stone but still. The weather promised to be brilliantly sunny and warm, which it was, and we considered a day or two by the seaside. Introducing Millie to sand…

And that’s a wrap for … April

Does anyone even understand how it is May already? April was just doing its thing, being all chill. We had some lovely sunshine-y days, did some pottering in the garden (my neighbours keep removing trees so I keep adding them 💁🏼‍♀️), read a little, nothing of much importance. Then the final week, my MIL decided…

And that’s a wrap for … March

According to the calendar it is April and I have no idea how that happened. A few days ago, we were sitting outside in the glorious sunshine with short sleeves. Today, however, as I type this, it’s snowing. WTF. Clearly Mother Nature suffers from hormonal moods as well. And unfortunately, the war in Ukraine rages…

And that’s a wrap for … February

My goodness, for a short month February seems to have lasted an eternity! I considered not doing this wrap-up. Hence why it’s late. Again. Everything just seems so trivial at the moment, with what’s happening in Ukraine. But, like me, maybe you too are increasingly turning to books to escape reality. Even if it’s just…

And that’s a wrap for January

I honestly don’t understand how people are saying January lasts an eternity. I feel like I only had people over for Christmas last week and yet, here we are in February (since I’m posting this update late, as per usual). I was going to do a whole thing about last year but really, that all…

September Wrap-Up

Hello, hi! Still alive! Sorry to disappoint you 😉 Time to say goodbye to September. A long, long, really long month. Did I mention long? A month not spent in my beloved Tuscany but at home where Summer was extremely hormonal and there was no peace or quiet to be found. A whole month, THIRTY…

August Wrap-Up

I can’t for the life of me understand how September has already arrived. Summer is over and it feels like we didn’t have one at all. It’s been rather chilly and miserable, feeling more like Autumn than anything else. September is normally my favourite month of the year. Not so much this time around and…
