Baby girl – is kicking every night from about 9 till midnight
Weather – I am sure this has been the coldest day of my life so far
Food – Stefo is back and has made some lovely teas, yummy
Stop press…Exciting local news, the cinema is having an English film festival (yes whole films in English) so we were all very very excited last week to be going to see Vera Drake. Then right at the last minute it was cancelled because – get this – the film hadn’t arrived. I give up, honestly it’s like living in the bloody dark ages…
Baby – if you were really lucky you could put your hand on my stomach and she might give ya a little kick.
Weather – blahhh
Food – I love sugar, sugar is lovely, all food should be made of sugar. (or cheese)
I had lunch with the inlaws today, it was bloody hilarious. Stefo is still away so it was just me and them and the language barrier.
I have no idea what was going on.
Problem is I get over excited and a bit carried away with myself and my Italian gets a bit manic. In fact when I got home I realised I’d been saying you have instead of I have all afternoon and strangely it didn’t seem to effect what we were talking about.
Now what can I eat…
Baby – It’s a girl yippee
Weather – yeah whatever
Food – Fishfingers mmmmmmmmm
Think Stefo is a bit worried that my blog is turning a wee bit anti-italian so to redress the balance here are some things which I like about Italy
They have petrol pump attendants so you don’t have to get out of your car
The bar will bring you your coffee at work on a little tray with a cake
MTV is free
You can get a cut, colour and blow dry for £20, it takes 30 mins and no matter where you go it looks like Vidal Sassoon did it
A triple gin and tonic is £3.00 and a packet of fags costs £2.00 (obviously of no consequence to me at the moment)
In the summer the boys look scrummy in their little swimming pants
An ice cream is like a full dinner
When Italians say ciao you dont think ‘wanker’
Thats all I can think of today
Weather – Spring has just about sprung
Baby – belly has doubled in size in the last week
Food – Currently am only able to eat cheese
Stupid, stupid idiot yesterday I weighed myself in the supermarket on the way in (I have gained 4.4 lbs/2 kilos in 2 weeks) and I then had to do the food shopping knowing that I was fat, going to get fatter and going to get a bollocking from my nazi doctor. I discovered that in the civilized world (the UK) they don’t weigh pregnant women anymore unless they are massively over or under weight. Why am I having this baby here? Can someone remind me please…
p.s. feta cheese rocks
