are we still friends?

In reverse chronological order, things that have kept me away from here: Cycling in no cycle areas of Hyde Park at dusk. Grandpa and Grandma visiting and being forced to eat sushi. Making strudel, and a cookbook entry. Crafting pirates’ hats. Keeping house. Being postgraduate. These trees. Making potato clocks. Telling the kids that if […]

it’s been so long…

Blogging is hard, takes a long time, is not satisfying, and it’s super useless. That said, I’ll keep doing it because it helps my shitty memory, especially when I need to find a recipe or when I wonder what was I doing 2 3 or 4 years ago today. Life goes so fast, and only […]

gorgeous holiday rental in the heart of the Alps!

It’s been a year since our plans of going abroad for a year were made and then brutally crushed together with knee ligaments and life threatening health issues. But we persisted, and now it’s really happening. I’ll be doing a master’s degree at the University of Reading starting in October, but we’re leaving in July […]

Santi, 4. Paper airplane party.

4 years ago I made a baby and he was the chubbiest sweetest thing in the world. Now he’s a big boy who still wishes he could wear nappies, who loves food and cars and pink. He’s quick to scare (Santi the cupboard!!!) and also quick to console. He loves his big brother probably more […]

′ On Saturday we woke up at dawn (if you think they look tired you should’ve seen me), hopped on a train and went to Bologna. We got our bibs and tried some cheap neuroscience to boost our confidence. And we ran. And ran. Until the finish line! The boys got medals, as did every other […]

Me, 10 years old, on my 10 year old cob. I loved riding. Somehow I found it beautifully depressing.

photos of Mexico, part III.

My aunt and godmother invited us again to her lovely Acapulco villa, where we spent the most relaxing 5 days of the last 6 years. and we got to see the most beautiful sunsets. The boys grew gills. And we all got ridiculously tanned. And now, back to the heart of winter!  

more photos of Mexico (part II)

The main reason for our trip was to celebrate my grandmother’s 90th birthday. It included delicious food, tamarind margaritas, and around 100 relatives. Here is she, in amazing shape, with all her granddaughters. (note: her locks are her natural colour. She’s never died her hair) And this is the whole lot of descendants: Dancing and […]

many photos from Mexico, part I.

First stop of our autumn vacation: Valle de Bravo. It’s a super cool town. I lived there when I was 9 until I was 11. (I mostly hated it back then) The boys got to meet their cousin Lucas. I really miss my cousins and the fact that over here my kids will never have […]

the summer of the steeplechase.

Olympic Steeplechase 3000. Please! That’s nothing, compared with what life threw at me this summer. But I’ve been winning, so far. (fingers crossed). Things done this summer, more or less chronologically: 1.Took the kids to the lake: 2.Took the kids on a hike, by myself, they both walked for 1 hour both ways. Heroes. 3.Made […]
