Yesterday I forgot Damiano’s Bunny when we left the playgroup, and when I noticed it was too late to go back. Damiano had a very very rough night, taking him 40 minutes of desperate wailing and calling for Bunny to fall asleep, and then waking up several times in the middle of the night “Buuuunnnnnnnnyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!! […]

As I slowly realize that in more or less a month I’ll be busy with a newborn AND a two year old full time, I have started to tackle some issues around the house that I am very unlikely to address once Santiago, Damiano and sleep deprivation drive me totally insane. One of these was […]

Oh I’m always so kind to myself!!! I actually think this belly is very becoming. And it is becoming HUGE. Anyway, the real reason I’m posting this is because I’m freaking proud of my sewing non-skills. Today I grabbed this belly panel, these old jeans, and TA DAAAAAAA! Maternity jeans. So comfortable they feel like […]

Ok so, first of all. Silly me. I’ve been living in Europe for more than 10 years now (ok, that just gave me goose bumps…). Why on earth didn’t I go to London sooner? truth is the sterling always scared me off, and I always went for “cheaper” places like Paris. So much for cheaper. […]

The sound is amazing.

Since I was bored I decided to start a band and record a debut album. I play the violin and the mandolin, sing and whistle. Awesome. Anyone can do it. These are the instructions. Bird in the hand, thanks you made my afternoon. Go to Wikipedia. Hit ‘random‘. The first Wikipedia article you get is […]

From this to that in 30 minutes

30 minutes sewing that is. A whole day trying to take the head measurements from a 2-year-old. The lovely sweater was ruined in the washing machine. Damn, it was NEW. Now it is (was) too small for either my husband and brother-in-law, so instead of stowing it away for 13 years for my teenage sons, […]

It’s one in the morning, I’m wiped out, but I lost the use of reason a couple hours ago so right now it seems like a great idea to blog about this. On my last trip to Innsbruck to see my gynecologist I picked up these lovely oven dishes at IKEA. They are the perfect […]

Hi there! It’s been a while, I know. It’s just that well, I’m pregnant. And that’s a good excuse for anything, or almost anything. This past week I spent three days away with my little one, since Michele was on a business trip to France and I didn’t want to stay alone in the house […]

6 years.

My father died 6 years ago. They found him dead in his flat in Mexico City. They broke in. He died alone. He hadn’t heard his daughter’s voice for 3 months, and for years before that. The last time I saw him was 5 years earlier, when we said good-bye a few days before I […]
