Ahhh, I’ve been off work for a month and I think it has rained every day. Now that I am back in the city it’s sunshine and blue skies!
For the past month, I was up in Portofino for some fresh air and relaxation…what I got was Mama. Every day at 7:00 a.m. she rode in on a green Ape like Lady Godiva. Lets be clear about something here, I’M NOT A MORNING PERSON. Yes, I am wake at 7 usually, but it doesn’t mean I actually WANT TO TALK TO YOU.
It got to the point where I was looking for excuses to go out or I would leave my door and shutters closed until 8, hiding inside the house with Coco while we had our morning tea. Ok, I had the tea, cats don’t drink tea, I think.
Anyway, it is now August and every granny is standing in a queue at the pharmacy to get her medication before the city shuts down for two weeks or more. Ferragosto and I am plotting my escape to Texas and then the great white north…Ontario, Canada!
In the meantime, I decided I needed to find a new book to read and I set my sights on How the World Sees you, by Sally Hogshead. Why did I pick this book? Well, I’m a smartass and I needed to know if that is how people see me or if it is just how I see myself. It turns out, so far, give me a break, I’m still on chapter one, that I’m an INNOVATOR with PASSION. In otherwords, a fancy way of saying “know-it-all, smartass 🙂 (who is out €15 for the book by the way).
Oh, and I was going to poke fun at her surname but then read the article in Forbes and decided to be nice. But seriously, I am actually enjoying this book. When I did her online test they told me I was a ROCKSTAR! So how could I diss her surname after that?
