We’ve been a few days without internet since a storm struck the centrale (something to do with Telecom - isn't it always) last week. I’ve heard of many others having problems with the internet here but it’s been years and I’ve never been cut off. My luck ran out it seems.
Having a break from the internet isn’t all bad though. You get more things done, I’ve even done a bit of a cambio stagione in my absence. Not really a cambio stagione up to Italian standards, but ok nonetheless. I mean, many tops can be worn practically all year round, especially with a cardi on top so there's no point storing them away for months is there? The downside to no internet obviously is that you don’t have all information to hand such as weather reports, phone numbers, etc. I needed the phone number of a restaurant and had to dust down the enormous phone book and start flicking the pages to find it. Back to basics indeed. I’m so behind on other blogs, forums etc too. We’re back online as of today though so I’m catching up. Oh dear I can feel myself slipping back to being internet dependent again already ;)
I wanted to write about my last days in my twenties before the technical hitch. Too late for that now. Yes, I’m now in my thirties. EEK! Another year older... I had a really lovely birthday, my parents came over and as a caramba che sorpresa my sister and her bf came over too! All lovely and special. The piano bar man in their hotel sang happee bird-a-daya to me too.
What are the good things about being 30 I wonder? Help me out, I’m new to this.
