Buongiorno a tutti! Buongiorno Bella Roma….and Hello gorgeous sunny day! The first half of class this morning had my head spinning… I am confused and to add to my confusion there will be a test on Friday… may the force be with me, …all force: Roman Gods, Angels, Winged Lion…Il Porcellino per favore! This past weekend I spent approximately 4-5 hours studying on Saturday and on Sunday oh about 6 hours. On a regular school week, I usually start cracking by Tuesday if not for sure by Wednesday when its pretty much guaranteed that I want to take flight but, I told myself today that after this week I will be on Level 4 and there are only 6 levels with the workbooks. I didn’t go out at all yesterday and I have no idea where the time went. I finished studying in the evening and then rewarded myself with the first 2 episodes of Downton Abbey. I know its English but the costuming is amazing!!! I love “period” films/mini series/etc.
Only 8 days and I will be back in Venice… I MUST behave because I will be vamoosing on a Thursday morning which means 2 days off of school…I’m sorry but I am not going to arrive in Venice at 4:30-5:00 pm on a Thursday afternoon…I want to be there so that I can enjoy an entire afternoon and plus with the cost of the hotel during Carnival…I will be checking in at 2:00 pm. almost on the dot.
Today’s reward is lunch at Ristorante 433…just having my cafe macchiato and then I will be off to proceed with the afternoon’s studies/homework and … cleaning of apartment terra-cotta tiled floor. I can almost hear Hugh Grant saying, “My what a gripping life you do lead.”
Ciao for now! (p.s. the continuing saga of the “Spoil Me Christmas Vacation Present to Self” will be posted shortly)
