Of course it doesn't help that I make my life more difficult. Today I went to do my tax return, the 730, or even more specifically - la sette trenta (they don't like it if you call it the settecento trenta!) - I had the last appointment going, but went to the wrong office, because there were two CAFs very close to each other. In my total ignorance to how the Italian tax system works I assumed that CAFs were all run by the same government funded organisation, like the Citizens' Advice Bureau in the UK. I waited almost an hour before we figured out my mistake. When it became clear that I was in the wrong place I sprinted out of there and down the road to the other where I, panting, announced my arrival. I needn't have worried. They were running an hour late! As per usual the person behind the desk wasn't totally confidence inducing, but it seems to be finished. They also booked me in for another appointment... in May 2015. I almost feel slightly suspicious about such a degree of organisation in Italy.
What with the endless trips to the INPS, ASL, ACI and the Agenzia delle Entrate this March you'd think I'd start to get more zen about it all... but somehow I don't!

Any way, this was all a long winded way to say, I probably won't be writing any blog posts in the coming weeks!
