Many changes have occurred recently and I wonder now if I should not change the name of this blog. For two years I have lived with Mama and after much discussion with my husband we both agreed that I would make the house in the country my permanent residence. Life up here will be “senza Mama” but on the other hand I will be miles away from the city, my job, my cat and a social life. Just as in life, there are pro’s and con’s to everything.
Once my residency is finalized I will commute to the city and try to balance both worlds. I wish it was a bit warmer though because now I have two portable heaters going and need to climb up four terraces on a muddy hill to get fire wood. If anyone thinks living here is the simple life, well yes, simple but hard! This giant dustbowl of stone and marble is not easy or cheap to keep warm. I miss Canadian houses with central heating and insulation. Everyone thinks it’s cold in Canada but I think it’s colder here if you factor in the humidity and lack of proper heating indoors. Anybody got wood?
