This and that!


It's a bit I don't write about my house. Well at the moment we are at the "mortar phase". Next to it we will place the tiles we have orderd last Saturday.


This has been a very short week here in Italy, 'cause June 2nd it was bank holiday. So tomorrow is again Saturday and to me this means: odering the fireplace (yes we have decided it!!) and choosing the bathroom suite!


Today I'm also very happy because on Sunday my cousin Sonia, her husband Andrea and their ever so cute little twins Arianna and Ylenia, will come to meet us!!!! 
Sonia and Andrea are 2 of our best friends and also were my maid of honour and my husband's best man at our wedding! And little Arianna and Ylenia brought our rings during the cerimony!
They live in the mountain (yes, in the town where I was born!) and we haven't seen each other for a couple of months, so I'm thrilled about Sunday!!!
We will prepare a yummy lunch and just have fun all together!


Meanwhile, let's have a look at this house. Isn't it gorgeous??!!
