Non vedo l’ora – I can’t wait! 

Ciao a tutti, 

sorry I have been so slack with writing this thing! Ahhhh but it’s less than 2 months until we head back to Italy and bella Roma! Non vedo l’ora! I cannot wait!! And I have to say life in Nuova Zelanda hasn’t been that bad for us! I’ve managed to work off all those pounds/kgs that I put on from all that KFC in London! And then all of nonna‘s pasta when we would go to Roma! Even Matteo is doing really well, he’s at least managing one run a week, and even that small effort is making all the difference! 🙂 I’m just hoping when we do go back to Italia we are not going to put all that effort to waste! I’ve told him he has to take me running when we are over there! And I know he’s already been in contact with his old kickboxing gym teacher back in Roma so he can attend there a couple of times! I’m sure I will get the Anna you always say sempre no from nonna when she try’s to feed me the whole contents of food in her casa in one sitting! Ahhhhh

On a more exciting note (well I find it exciting) Zia Paola sent me a copy of nonno Ermanno‘s family tree, and they can trace it all the way back to 1517!! I mean WOW! I will take a picture over the next couple of days to show you! It’s pretty amazing, even just to read the names is so interesting! 😄

Allora… Ciao! 

I will write again soon! 


Tanti baci

    I wonder where our family trees started? Maybe they go back many centuries, also!

    Good luck saying “No” to nonna when she wants you to eat more. What part of Roma will you stay in?

      Zia Paola said she will take us to Marche so we can see the old family mausoleum! I’m very excited to see that! Because the family tree is just a photocopy of a photocopy, the original was lost, so i would be interested in re doing it for them :)! And gosh I know!! Nonna forever tells me off for not eating enough! And now that I lost my pasta belly I’m sure I’ll be hearing that I’m too skinny! But then Matteo tells me nonna actually has ptsd when it comes to food! Since she knows what it’s like to live through a famine, she needs to over feed us all to make sure it won’t happen again! Ahhhh!!! We are staying in Casale lumbroso. It’s about a 15min drive to the centre of Rome 🙂
