July 2022

A General Overview This month we had our “second” spot of holidays. This time at the seaside in the March region. We decided to try out something that we never did before, i.e. go to one of these “organized villages” where there are a bunch of services like, kids activities, night shows, pools and so… Read More July 2022

June 2022

A General Overview So it happens that after 9 months of pretty difficult situations we managed to have our first holiday, just the four of us!

May 2022

A General Overview Not a huge improvement in our lives so far, but I can’t say that things are getting worse, so it’s good news I guess… Maybe we reached a plateau?

January 2022

A General Overview Very very very late… But here nonetheless! Renovations at home are entering the final stages, University started again at full throttle (a great thing of course), and kids being kids require a lot of management. Having only 24 hours available, I am working at night, as during the day I am taken… Read More January 2022

December 2021

A General Overview So December arrived, bringing Leonardo’s birthday, several festivities (both Italian and Russian) and the much dreaded end of school. This year Leo seems more into Christmas, well I guess growing up means that he realizes more and more what Christmas actually is (for a baby perspective of course, meaning “presents”). The renovations… Read More December 2021
