January 2020

General Comment New Year was rather uneventful as our kid was sick we spent the night at home, just the three of us, which was rather nice I have to say. Kick off on the new semester was rather positive, we even managed to “book” daycare for our son starting September… Yes that’s the bad… Read More January 2020

November 2019

General Comment Oranges. I think this has been the food related highlight of the month, buying oranges and the likes (lemons, tangerines and so on) from Sicily, directly from the producers sites.
