The last couple days have been the busiest ever! On January 2nd I was working at the Youth Centre in the afternoon, then Eleonora had her birthday and we were out for dinner, eating pizza and celebrating with her. I had a pizza with cheese topping that I'd not eaten for a long while: it was so yummy!!!
Yesterday I was a busy bee. In the morning we met at 8.30 at the church with Ricky, Luana and some kids and we went to the old people's home in downtown where we sang at the Mass with the oldies and then played the puppet show once again and Ricky and "his" kids played some Christmas music to them. Those oldies were so happy that we were there and had so much fun, even if the puppet show was not that good (we had only got 4 kids coming with us, and they had to play some 9 parts of the wonders it wasn't the best show ever!) ! There was an old lady who was smiling all the time long and even clapping her hands and holding hands with two other oldies during some songs. It gave us joy to see them happy, but it felt somewhat melancholic too, because those people must be very lonely there. One lady told us to please go back to visit them again because they so much need our company, it was such a cry for help! I took lots of piccies and some of them are absolutely beautiful.
In the afternoon I was at the Youth Centre again, from 4 pm to 7.30pm. There were quite a lot of teenies coming but everything was quiet and we had a nice afternoon to go through.Anyway I was so busy yesterday that I hardly turned on the pc and it is so unlike me!
Today I will make sure I have a night in and an early night on top of that!
I went shopping in the morning and got everything needed to fill the stockings for my sis and Ricky on 6th. I got chocolates, sweets and a small booklet for Monica and an electric toothbrush (it'll come in handy with all of those sweets *lol*) and a running Adidas suit for Ricky. It is the last holiday of the X-mas season, the Epiphany, and I want it to rock!!! 
I am still reading Hold Tight, and I like it to bits! I got "Love in the time of cholera" today at the supermarket, it was cheap and I couldn't help it: I had to get it!!! 
It's snowing today, but it won't hopefully set since the ground is all wet... This weather constantly changing surely isn't helping my cold! I am still with a running nose... Awful!

Most of my friends on LJ have been updating almost daily their blogs and I am only one who seems to always be in a rush not to update at all! Christmas is almost here but I've been so busy that I almost noticed that today's only 3 days to X-mas!!! Years ago I used to get all hyper over the X-mas time, but now I am still not as excited as I used to be... Is this a grown up attitude to X-mas?! I already got (and opened...sorry I couldn't resist!) some parcels from my pals and online friends: everything was amazing!!! Thank you [info]badmadnad , [info]a_lenchen , [info]rakusanka , Rebecca, Debbie, Eva, Nicola. And thank you to everyone who sent me a gift or card that is on its way still. I received books, pens, bookmarks, writing paper, stickers, chocolate so far! I am a spoilt girl I know!!!  As for the gifts, I think I am almost done with it (of course I should be, because it is X-mas in 3 days time and it would be such an issue had I still to start the whole X-mas shopping): mom and dad got a religious book each, Monica a parfume and a pj, Ricky (I won't say here, because he sometimes happens to read my journal and I won't spoil the surpise here!)..., Ilaria got a whole lot of goodies from JanetStore (I had to pay more in postage to chose a fast delivery and it luckily worked great and I received the parcel almost one week ago, I now need to find a cool box to keep the goodies in) , Valentina got a box with some cocktails recipes (this is a joke, because a few weeks ago she made a mojito for me and ... well I  cut it short and say it had to be thrown in the sink! So Ricky and I thought it would have been such a fun to give her something of the like! We'll add something to it, we still need to find that something though. I wanted to buy some book, maybe something that'll come in handy in February when she's going to Spain for the Erasmus), all of our other friends will get a gift receipt that we donated money to Amref. Ricky's family will get a basket full of Umbrian food. Ricky and I decided to buy together presents for his cousins. Elisa is getting a bath cream and a lipbalm, and Lorenzo is getting a board game with some astronomy lectures. I am thinking of buying a gift to my sister's boyfriend, because he would be into reading some Dickens and since I am a Dickens fan I feel like giving it to him! I know he's be into "A Christmas Carol".  Yesterday we did the X-mas market at the Church and the earnings will go to charity. This year we'll donate the money to an old people home. We worked hard on it all yesterday, from 8.30 am to 8.30 pm... I was so tired yesterday night! We took some good shots and I am getting the piccies from a girl either today or anyway this week.          

  Bianca & I with Luana I thougth I was caught up with letters in the past few weeks, when I got 6 all together and I am behind with replies again!!! Awful! I am lucky since I will have a few days to write them before I will be able to send any mail out. Postal Service is unreliable lately and I rather not send mails over the holidays...I will send everything out again on 2nd January...Won't risk my mails to get lost again! So please, [info]badmadnad , Eva, Lisa, Debbie, [info]rockinchick24 ,[info]kriss81 be patient till the beginning of 2010. Ok, going now, gift hunting for Valentina and my pets before I attend the X-mas dinner at church with the group of secondary school pupils. Until next time...

wish a joyful, merry X-mas to all of you... May you spend it in a peaceful and serene way with your loved ones
