Moving

A volte capitano cose che proprio non ti aspetti: in questo caso, dopo essere stati molto fortunati e aver vissuto tranquilli in Castillo Ducie per quasi due anni e mezzo, un venerdì 13 (Giugno) arriva la notizia che abbiamo due mesi di tempo per lasciare la casa. Trovare da affittare...

Changing job

Il lavoro per l’azienda che “è una delle più grosse aziende nel mercato dei cosmetici, dei profumi e dei prodotti per la cura della pelle e dei capelli” si è rivelato completamente diverso da quello che mi aspettavo. Doveva essere il lavoro della mia vita, ma in realtà è stato...

Forty-six is a bit of a number; it tastes neither like meat nor fish. And the balance of my life at the moment is a bit of the same, although, over everything, there are plans for the future and the possibility that they can be realised with a lot of effort and a bit of luck. I think I have already said this,...

One morning, I woke up

I thought about it a little before writing about it, and I decided now, after checking that everything was okay, because I hope it’s useful to someone else.

My lucky day

After work, we went halfway across London and five shops to look for the Nexus 5X, in the beautiful Ice colour, which I finally found at Selfridges.
Too bad I hadn’t considered the SIM variable, and my old SIM didn’t have the nano format, so I ended up with a half-tablet instead of a smartphone....

And it's been three

Today it is (we should use the conditional since the civil union should no longer be valid since we are no longer residents in Milan) three years since my sweetheart and I joined civilly.
Last year we spent it in the hospital since I ended up there for a week, and I was writing:

And so happy anniversary to us,...

Habemus domum

In reality, we signed the rental contract for a year on May 10, but as usual, the time to write is always short, and lately, I have also worked more than usual (not without satisfaction, and therefore that’s okay).
The house is the same one we had taken for two months, with a Scottish flatmate (who turned out to be an excellent flatmate)....
