Outside, winter has finally arrived. A week of sub-zero temperatures and a beautiful snowfall last night across the whole of the UK.
Inside, it's all about keeping warm and cosy. The central heating is cranking, cake tins
Although this is all very cosy and homely, my mind is constantly ticking over with all that needs to be done before our move to Italy.
Passport renewals and a first-time passport for Max have all been applied for, ready for our March 28th departure. Italian language courses that I've had sitting expectantly on our bookshelf for a number of years now are finally being looked at. I'm so used to relying on Austin's grasp of the language that I've been very slack in learning it properly myself. BAD Brigitte because I'm now going to have to communicate mostly on my own when Austin's working from London. But apparently the best way to learn is by being thrown in the deep end...!
Luca was given a Formula One racing outfit for Christmas by our good friends and he totally LOVES it, although he's on the larger side of the 3-5 year old size and it's therefore rather 'snug' around the vital areas in particular... His buns are very cute in it though ;)
He insists on wearing it everywhere. He's been to church in it twice now. Not the best attire for a wintery day..! I managed to convince him to put his PJ's on after his bath this evening instead of his extra-tight Formula One gettup. Funny wee guy.
Hoping you have all had a fun-filled weekend!
