It rained today. And I mean REALLY rained. For this reason, after taking Metta to dance and back, the day was pretty much confined to the house. Heck, Camillo had a more exciting day than me! He had a party today in Camucia, so he went off to rave it up with many more three year-olds (a shudder-inducing thought). Of course, the party wasn't until four o'clock, so we were graced with his stimulating company until then. Thankfully (and also a little surprisingly) he seemed to be in a pretty good mood today which was nice. 
So, today started fairly casually. Maelys spent about half an hour dragging Millo around the house in a cardboard box. I know it was once the same with me, but I really cannot figure out, now that I am older and very wise (obvs), how small children can have so much fun with a box. Ha, just joking! I was on the precipice of asking Millo if I could join in being dragged around...
Today my workout was helping Annetta carry a huuuuuge tabletop down three flight of stairs...and then bringing it back up a couple of hours later. As I have said before, muscles of steel will I have by April. 
I did some more paintings on wood as well today. Livia wanted to have some more paintings of buildings that the kids would recognize, so today it was the turn of the Calcinaio and the clock tower building in the square of Cortona. I'm quite proud of the fact that they did actually turn out to be fairly recognizable. I think, if I don't become a professional children's storyteller, I will create a job for myself as architect of slightly cartoony looking buildings. I tell you, it's a burgeoning market!
Thus the day past. It finished with Livia and Luca having a couple of friends over for dinner which I feared would mean Maelys and I would have to spend even longer with the kids trying to get them to bed (a thankless task). Luckily, that wasn't the case and at about 10 their guests had gone, and we were relinquished to the comfort of crappy 80s teen movies (at least that's how I intend on spending my evening).
