So we found an amazing little wine bar in Cortona, Tuscany, to watch the Origin courtesy of their free wi-fi and live streaming on the iPad.  Pretty sure it's the best meal and wine (and view for T) we've ever had while watching the game!! Not sure ...

So today started off like any other here. I woke up, took Fiammetta to school, wafted around doing things around the house for Livia or the kids and then picked up Fiammetta and her friend, Sara, from school at one. That is when the normality ended. I ...

It was touch and go this morning. Millo was in whine mode (I know what you're all thinking: does he have any other mode? Answer: very doubtful) and didn't want to go to school. Livia kept asking him if he wanted to go play/ go to the park for a bit ...

So Millo didn't go to school again today. Ahh the joy of a day filled with an ill, and thus whiney, three year old... Still, we made the best of it. I did so by spending the majority of the morning sniffing paint fumes (not entirely to escape Camillo. ...

Oh my was it cold today! Scotland's February's have nothing on Cortona today. It was a full blown snow and wind affair. Weirdly enough and contrary to what you would imagine, I went outside today more than I do on a normal day. Firstly I took Metta to ...

Today's drawing is... a slightly out of proportion drawing of Millo sleeping in Abetone. Yay! I wasn't really feeling it so it's not the best drawing ever, but it'll do.  Today was pretty uneventful, morning-wise. I had the house to myself for a ...

Monday! Today Filammetta and Camillo had school which meant getting up at 7.00. That is something I haven't done in...about 9 months, so was not a fun experience but no doubt I'll get used to it soon enough. Filammetta starts school at 8.30 so we took ...

Gah I cannot stand this woman! The family is moving in September, which I think is stressing her out, and as a result she is more whiney than usual. I seem to be able to do very little right a the moment, especially towards the end of the day. Aaand ...
