Summer holidays

August was a long and challenging month, partly because of the heat and fatigue.
But after almost three years, we returned to Italy at the end of the month.
It wasn’t exactly a holiday: between relatives and friends, we were shuttled from the north-east to the north-west, and the only day we didn’t walk kilometres and have dinner/lunch/aperitifs with someone was the day before we took the plane home when we enjoyed the spa....

Something's happening

This July was also tiring because of that week when we almost reached 40 degrees, and then the temperatures plummeted (about 10 degrees). Between the heat and the increased workload, I feel exhausted, and for the Holidays, those with a capital H, I will have to wait until September.

Instead of looking for words I cannot find,...

As it is, as it is not

Because since Thursday has been a bank holiday all over the UK due to Platinum Jubilee, as I wrote in the previous post, I relaxed by removing Timber from the theme of this blog.
Today is neighbourhood party day, the perpendicular street to ours is closed and full of flags, and there is music.
The candidate would tell us in which district of London it is taking place after listening to the audio file below,...

Free time

I imagine that each person has their particular way of relaxing: take a walk, go to the beach, pursue their hobby, and so on.
The undersigned instead takes up this blog and does things. In this case, it is now possible to browse the blog entirely in English, from the homepage to the categories, up to the search....
