It has been a busy and full week back at work and I have to say it is taking me a little while to get used to it again! However, it has warmed up slightly here and the sun is shining bright today…which puts you in a good, positive mood!
I am thinking about doing my ‘Things I Love Sundays’ feature every two weeks, or as a month review, but I haven’t decided yet. What do you think?
For now however, this week I have been loving…
–Going back to work and seeing all my students! – Getting organized – Making new friends – New opportunities arising – Lavender and Chamomile room spray –Saturday lunch with my girls – Catching up with friends who live way too far away – Being asked if I live in a library because I always have new books…then being told by a little girl we should open a library together and call it ‘La libreria dei sogni’ The Library of Dreams – Chamomile, lemon balm and lavender tea (Loving Lavender and Chamomile everything, at the moment!) – Discovering new places in Milan I haven’t visited before, like the Basilica di Sant’Ambrogio (pictured below!) –

What have you been up to or enjoyed this week? I want to hear!
Here’s to a productive and happy week ahead!
I am writing my ‘Things I Love Sundays’ feature a day late this week, as I had no laptop at the weekend to write on! But I am back now and very happy as today is my birthday! Last week was my last full week at home in England before I head back to Milan this week and get back to work. It has really been a very wonderful summer, spent with all my family and friends and I will be sad to leave…however I am looking forward to seeing the sun again and wearing summer clothes! England has been far too cold! So here is my last list of things I have loved this week at home…
– Seeing my cousin and her husband and meeting their new baby boy – Cuddles with baby Atticus! – Lunch out with my Mum and Dad – Peaceful walks with my dog in the countryside and picking blackberries along the way! – Taking my Grandma out for afternoon tea, she is one of the funniest people I know – My Mum throwing an afternoon tea for my birthday with my dear friends Kate and Chris (it has been a week of endless afternoon teas! – I am not complaining though!) – Kate and Chris making me the most insane chocolate, fudge, more chocolate…more fudge, chocolate buttons birthday cake…with a pink candelabra cake decoration! It was amazing! – Fresh flowers – A crazy Sunday with my whole family, who are all mad and yet another afternoon tea! – My cousin and I blowing bubbles in the garden and the dog going mad for them! –
It has been a slightly mad week really! I am definitely going to miss everyone when I am back at work…still Christmas isn’t that far away is it!?!
I am working on lots of posts and hoping to get into a good routine of writing and posting when I am settled back in Milan…including a recap of suggestions so far, for my ‘Read Around the World’ feature, new posts on Milan and more on the Expo!
Hope you all have a great week!
What a great British Tradition! Afternoon tea – a pot of tea, sandwiches, scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream and cake – of any sort…Victoria sponge, fresh raspberries and cream…or chocolate…or lemon and meringue!! Delicious!
