Life begins at 52

Life begins at 52, as they say. Well, maybe they don’t say it, but I think I will be entering a new phase of my life now. With Luca and Mattia doing a gradual beginning at the nursery the last two weeks, and school for Stefania and Daniele starting only on Thursday (and only in the morning for those two days), I was spending most mornings at the nursery and most afternoons, when Pinuccia was at work, looking after 4 children. So on Saturday I celebrated my birthday playing in a chess tournament. I won a salami, 500g of mortadella, 1kg of pasta, a bottle of wine and a bottle of balsamic vinegar as the best of the not so good players – a nice birthday present, and very Italian! Tomorrow all the children will start their normal hours, which means I will have a few hours free every morning for work and ministry. A new life beginning! Although I’m not sure if they will all actually make it to school tomorrow since they all have a cold, then Tuesday one has a dentist appointment and Wednesday another a doctor’s appointment, and on Friday I will be in a Skype meeting for the mission, so the life beginning may be more theoretical than real. But the mornings next week are looking pretty free at the moment, so maybe life begins at 52 and a week.
