This week Tim and I headed to Milan. It was a pretty great city despite most everyone seemingly being away for ‘ferie’ (holidays). We did a bit of shopping and spent lots of time in museums (we are such dorks). Also I start work tomorrow which is pretty exciting. Although Tim doesn’t start for another week which means getting out of bed might still be a bit of a struggle.

In real life I am reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s autobiography, Living to Tell the Tale. I’ve read several of his books and it is so interesting to read how so many of his own life events have made their way into his beautiful story telling. I would suggest reading some of his books before diving into this but it is a beautiful insight into my favourite writer. We picked up a kindle bundle of all his books for £30 odd which works out about £2 a book which isn’t too bad so I am slowly making my way through them all.
This Sunday after a week of eating out loads (days away and new staff starting at the school), lots of gelato (always) and a bit too much wine I thought I would start this morning off with something light and healthy. A massive bowl of watermelon. Summer don’t leave!
