Long long time not updated... I have been going through a rough time and actually didn't feel like writing at all. So I basically had an off period of more than one month when I had no letters, no journal, no writing at all! It wasn't like me at all!
I am now feeling a bit better, on a more cheerful mood and feel like telling my best friends (via mail) about my feelings and what's been going on in my life so far. I have already written to
[info]badmadnad and posted the letter today (I admitt it being rubbish because not only it is written in parts but she had to deal with my ups and downs... but after all this is the downside of being my bestie!)  and I am now working on[info]litarana 's mail. We've got lots to catch up on! Next one will be[info]kriss81 to be written. That's for sure and then I have got another 2 and I have written to everyone. Mind you, I make it sound an easy thing to write this lot, but it'll actually take weeks before I am officially done with replies. I am such a slow writer and having so little spare time isn't helping!
But I swear I will do my best to be as fast as I can!
I am done with reading a good few books since I last updated. I read "Marley&Me", "Veil of Roses", "Dewey: the small town library cat who touched the world", "The lovely bones" and I started yesterday "L'amore e gli stracci del tempo" that is by an Albanian author called Anilda Ibrahimi who writes in Italian and I am not at all sure is translated in any other languages. Today I noticed that there's a new Edward Rutherford's book issued about New York this time and I think I must have it!

Yesterday night I went with Ricky to his coworker's home. Another posh house to start with, and I already was not in the best of moods I admitt it...I am not good at hiding it when I am pissed off or feel not at ease with someone...My fault!
The dinner was nothing special, and they were all laughing about nonsenses and at some point I felt like I was on the verge of tears! I'd just realized that Ricky spends more time with those people than he does with me and they (all girls) were calling him silly names... It was driving me crazy and I had to behave not to burst in tears... Sometimes I wonder if it is the right thing to live the lives we do...Confused matter I know... I was confused yesterday night and I didn't like it that they were calling MY boyfriend those silly names and being that much in confidence with him... I hate it especially because I know how Ricky usually is a reserved person... I felt just blah yesterday night and I was still feeling weird today morning.

Today was pretty a busy day for me: I worked 9-12 in the morning doing some minor tasks at the CSI office. I rushed back home, where Rolly was waiting for me, we went out for a short walk and then again back home to cook lunch. Afte lunch I went outside with Rolly and played with him for some 20 minutes. I must do that because he'd otherwise try to spend time chewing random things at home (last time he did something of the like he did it with mom's book and she wasn't pleased with it!). At 3 I was at the Youth Centre in my suburb where I had to first tutor the kids who were doing homework 'till 5. I had to prepare a snack for them after that. The afternoon ended with me watching them playing the PS2 untill 6.30. When they (finally) went home I cleaned up everything at the Centre and hurried back home. I am now in my pj and I think it won't be long before I go to bed. I am pretty tired today but it is not surprise when I'm a busy bee everyday!

I have still got 7 letters to reply and I feel awful about it, but I can't put myself to writing in the evening. Tomorrow morning I am at home and I will give writing a try.
Reading isn't going much better, still stuck on Rhett Butler's people, because of lack of spare time (it's a good book really). Will read half an hour before falling asleep.

How's the New Year started with you all?! Mine was really wet. Man (!), it was raining pretty heavy yesterday night when we greeted the new year at midnight and it almost spoilt the fireworks show, and today it is pouring down with the heaviest rain ever!!! Really, I can't remember of a New Year as wet as this one!!!
I slept 2 hours today, from 6.30am when I was back home from the Church Youth Centre, to 8.15am when I had to wake up because I urgently needed the loo. I think I shouldn't have drank any red wine (or any wine at all!) yesterday night, that I still wasn't 100% ok... I now have a light heartburnt but nothing too unbearable. It won't surely spoil my lunch today!
I plan on spending the day with writing a letter (working on Eva's at the moment) and then going on with the gripping thriller I started yesterday evening "Hold tight" by Harlan Coben. If the plot stays like this I will have to list it among the best books read in 2010 already! lol*
At 6pm  I am meeting mates at the Youth Centre because we need to do some bits and pieces to have it all clean and shiny again after the party. And we'll be dining together tonight because we've got lots (and I seriously mean it!) of leftovers that we could feed another 20 people off (anyone wanna join us?! You're welcome!)!!!
The party yesterday night was fun, the dinner was fullfilling and tasty and we seriously ate too much! We then played some board games, starting with Tabu (that's always big fun, if played with some smart people!) and Wherewolves, the role play game we are so fond of, that I was the master of. Finally, farmers won but I admitt the wolves played such a great match!
Time to get ready for the 11.30 Mass...Gotta go! Happy New Year everyone once again, may this year be bright and happy and lucky and lots of other good things for everyone of us!

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...





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