Hours are thin on the ground, the kids are tired of my educational games now and I am sick of the taking the metro with all the sweating stinking commuters packed in like sardines at rush hour. A appears in public without a jacket on. Even the blog wants a holiday.
This can only mean one thing. It's the end of June and I finish work this week and am heading back to the UK to make the most of my summer holidays/unemployment. If all goes to plan I should be starting at a new school outside Milan in October. Fingers crossed! It's been sad saying goodbye to people, but hopefully it will all be worth it.
On the upside I am really looking forward to seeing my family and catching up with old friends. Weddings and babies are the order of the day. Very much hoping the weather will let me adjust gently. I had to repack my suitcase when I realised I had been packing for a summer break in Madrid. Wishful thinking?
Bye bye A. I'll miss you! Don't get too sick of rice salad and pasta pesto.
Oh and don't forget to water the plants on the balcony AND inside the house. The basil needs watering once a day.
Ciao for now!
P.s. If you end up spending more than an hour looking at jars of pickles in the supermarket, then I will write you a shopping list, but only then.
