October 2022

A General Overview I mentioned before how the start of schools marked the potential period of relative more freedom and much needed coming back to a very limited social life, which we had to put on hold. Well sadly, as October started so did all the kids related diseases and illnesses, which meant even more… Read More October 2022


September 2022

A General Overview Well, things seem to be getting back to normality, after the hectic summer we lived with 2 kids at home. Elder is back in school and the young one is about to start kindergarten A sign of the changes is the fact that I’ve managed to go back to international business trips,… Read More September 2022

August 2022

A General Overview August is an holiday month for most Italians, but not for us. Maybe because we are a mixed international family? No, simply because we went on holidays in July and June, so no more partying for us! Life was difficult with 40 degrees Celsius, no air conditioning (it died when we came… Read More August 2022

July 2022

A General Overview This month we had our “second” spot of holidays. This time at the seaside in the March region.

April 2022

A General Overview Things are not improving “busy wise”, but fortunately we are seeing the end of the house renovations that we started a long time ago. Tantrums form the 3 y.o. are killing us most of the time, but there isn’t much to do there, apart from hoping that they will soon stop. On… Read More April 2022

March 2022

A General Overview Groudhog Day is the idea I keep getting in my mind to describe the recent months, it seems as I keep living the same day over and over, and I don’t like it at all… I guess this is mostly to do with the fact that two young kids/babies are something that… Read More March 2022

February 2022

A General Overview One day at the time… February is gone! Well well, where to start? We are in the middle of a European war, in 2022. Who would have thought? Russia invaded Ukraine and all of a sudden cold war memories come back to life… It’s kind of NOT funny to see the media… Read More February 2022

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
