In The Mood For

{swimming in a cold, crystal clear, salty, blue sea}

Those who think that the holidays are synonymous with dolce fare niente, relaxation or peace of mind think again - at least here at home! The card box piles are almost reaching the ceiling, the rooms are full length and breadth of stuff, we have not done anything except cleaning tiles, cabinets, floors, windows and I am truly shocked at the amount of stuff that has fit this small house for all these years. All this also contribites to reshape livelihoods, investments and learn to be more selective andprudent. After all, it is from past mistakes that we learn at least not to repeat the same ones in the future! I´m in the mood for...

Desengane-se quem pensa que as férias são sinónimo de dolce fare niente, descontração ou paz de espírito - pelo menos aqui por casa! Os caixotes acumulam-se até ao teto, as divisões estão cheias de lés a lés, não temos feito mais nada a não ser limpezas de mosaicos, armários, azulejos, chão, janelas e estou verdadeiramente em choque com a quantidade de tralha que coube nesta casa pequena durante todos estes anos. Tudo isto também serviu para reformular modos de vida, investimentos e aprender a ser mais seletiva e ponderada. Afinal, é com os erros passados que devemos aprender, pelo menos a não repetir os mesmos no futuro! Apetece-me...
