It's been a week since we came back from holidays and I'm already in need for another couple of weeks by the sun. I've been working like mental this week, sometimes from 7am to 8pm without lunch break. On top of that, I'm having problems to sleep, waking up every hour. Tired? Multiply by 10.

I've been thinking a lot about having a baby. A LOT. Cipri is even scared. But this week I am SO GLAD I don't have a child around to keep me awake. I know that mothers can find strength out of nowhere and survive to lack of sleep, excess of noise and screams, etc etc, but it's not yet my time. I can't see myself slowing down at work and I can't see myself not being with the baby in the first years. So unless we win the lottery no babies anytime soon.

Good news though: I have some holidays left for 2008. I won't be able to take everything this year, but will try to take 5 days and carry another 5 to 2009. I have already a plan: working my ass off in 2009 and get more days in lieu so I can have loads of holidays to take! :-)

Letter to Santa Claus

Dear Santa,

It's been a while since I last wrote to you. In fact, I never did, because for some kind of magic all I needed to do is tell mum what I wanted for Christmas and, voilá, the present was under the Christmas tree. And probably after I turned 5 I found out that Santa was in fact mum (dad, uncles and aunts). Then I turned into a teenager and requests were not allowed anymore. Maybe a hint, like "clothes", "shoes", but no guarantee that the wish would be granted. And this was when I stopped caring about presents, etc. Between you and me: I like the food the most. I L-O-V-E Christmas food. Forget about the singing, the Christmas tree, street lights, etc. Food, food, food. But my new year's resolution will be to loose weight, so I'm going to keep away from too much food.
So this year I'll exchange food for present. I have chosen the first one, and to help you finding it, here is the picture. Don't bother searching different stores for the best bargain, I've done this already and all stores are selling the pair for the same price.

Size 5, Nike, black. :-)

Sincerely yours,


P.S.: Since we don't have a Christmas tree, you can put the presents by the TV - it's pratically the same.

one week of pure lazyness

We haven't done much apart eating, sleeping and sunbathing. Couldn't ask for more.

I wish I could have the whole month off. Not missing London or work at all.

From Tenerife to the world

The wonder of technology! I'm writing this post while debating with myself if I should change position and sunbath at the front. The back of my knees are burnt and hurting.

Yes, I'm at the beach right now.
