An english girl who after six months in the french mountains, has left for Italia, the beautiful country.My thoughts on leaving life as I know it and beyond! Join me as I embark on a life with lots of adventure and a lack of heels!!!!
I thought i'd share a few things about how things are going on the practical side of life. Instead of me waxing lyrical about what i'll miss and what I want to buy, I expect it's about time I filled you in on what i've been up to.
The most important thing that husband and I need to do, before we bugger off at the end of the year, is sell our house. This house has been our place of residence for the last 3 years. We bought it as a 'project'. The house had been lived in for over 30yrs by the previous owners and believe you me it looked like it. Think lilac artex as far as the eye could see(with pink rose stencils here and there), purple, red and green paintwork(no comment), melamine mahogany effect wood(why oh why), carpets that practically walked out by themselves(yes really!), kitchen worktop that looked as if it was inspired by monet(nothing wrong with monet but up against lemon kitchen cupboards this greeny/browny/bluey concoction was too much),and layers and layers and layers of wallpaper(we could tell the decade by the pattern!!!). We basically had to take the whole house back to the brick work and start all over again, a brilliant idea for two people that can't really be arsed with diy!!!(hmmm)
This was a painstaking job, every little thing turned into 10 more jobs to do and what with a drunken plumber(don't ask), builders that do as they please not as they're meant to(don't get me started) and, the best bit, living in this nightmare!! We lived in our bedromm alone for over a year, had no heating, no flooring, no nothing, it really was living in a derelict house, suprising it was'nt condemmed sometimes!!
A love of food is slowly turning my life into something quite exciting. I have spent a long time thinking about how I can turn my passion for cooking and healthy eating into something that I can share with everyone. I'm kind of a been there done that dieter that has finally woke up to the fact that you actually just have to eat REAL food and you have to work at it. Fortunately for you I have done the hard work, this blog is the easy answer for all you out there that want to learn how to make delicious, healthy food thats good for your waistline, your health and your pocket!
