When I first started my blog I decided it will be also our diary showing our presence, future but also past Today's post is from the past - from 2006 trip to Lugano. I have a dear friend in Milan. We met in high school during my school trip to Italy. We know each other already 18 years - it sounds crazy. Well to make long story short we reunited in 2006 after many years not being in touch and spent some time together in Italy and Lugano. It was spring time and we decided to drive from Milan to Lugano for a day trip. He is a very good driver and took us safely through the mountains to discover beautiful Lugano. We spent only a day there but it was worth it. I don't remember much (sign of getting old) and don't have any pics from it and the one he emailed me are very bad. I did search online to see what I still remember. I have in my head pictures of beautiful lake, mountains, flowers everywhere, and very cold wind. The colors were so amazingly rich and deep - blues and greens His Mum made us beautiful picnic lunch and we walked for hours. Memory is fading and this post is to keep it alive ... happy 18th anniversary to my dear friend.

Last weekend wasn't the best for me but my great hubby managed to turned it into not so bad one at the end. He took me for dinner on Sun night so I could forget about all bad things happening and relax a bit. We went to a little Japanese bar in the Valley Great place, yummy fresh food and not overpriced Funny and friendly staff - we were very happy with the choice we made We have started with a bowl of spiced beans, followed by duck dumplings and rice and beef dish to share It is such a happy and quirky place, would say more for young people grabbing something to eat before night out Will be back soon for sure...

"I hate Mondays" I am one of those people going through Monday blues every week. Not that I don't like my job, I do like what I am doing but still life is much more than working from 8 to 5 Mon - Fri. We do love our weekends and try to make the most of it. Last one I should put in the box with "relaxing' name on it. Was very relaxing for me but not for my hubby who was working hard to finish our front fence I think to show finish product I will have to wait 3 more weeks at least... We always try to work on our queenslander on saturdays and have sundays free for us to enjoy it. While my both boys went to see footy live to suncorp stadium on Sunday I had an afternoon snooze, I know it sounds bad and boring but I love my afternoon naps. There is nothing better than that. House is empty, whole bed only for me, all windows open and silent around me...
