Here are my answers to this week’s Share Your World 15 May.

Sorry I am using my smartphone, the writing is quite difficult… Hope there are not too many typos.
1. How many languages do you you speak?

My mother tongue is Venetian, a sort of Italian dialect. But now, where I live, they speak Friulian, an ancient language with a grammar and literature. All road signs here are in Friulian. I can understand it, not speak it. Then, obviously as I am Italian, I speak 100% fluent Italian. At the University I graduated in German (for which I have got a proficiency level – a language I really love) and English (for which I have got a teaching position at School and a C1 level of the European Framework). When I was at High school I got my A levels in French, though. And then, as I am so curious, I have learnt some Spanish and Russian. I am planning to learn some Chinese and Arabic… When I will retire. 😀

2.What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

I am unsually reading more books at a time (not me really, I am getting older): ‘Je pense trop’ by Petitcollin; ‘the revolving door of life’ by A. McCall Smith; ‘ I giorni dell’abbandono ‘ by E. Ferrante. The funny thing is that I am reading them all original version.

I am watching ‘The Crown’.

I am listening to ‘Occidentali’s Karma’ by Francesco Gabbani. LISTEN AND DANCE! CLICK HERE

I have just eaten an home made spinach and salami pie. Delicious!

3.What was the last photo you took with your phone?

One of my roses.

4.What is your favourite time of day?
Early… Night! I am an owl. And then in the morning I force myself to get up. I would like to have longer sleeping time. I can’t get more than 6/7 hours a night.
Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

*grateful: For mother’s day and my kids’ love

*looking forward: A long weekend



Peeking through



Be honest. Even if you know it is not correct, once in life you have peeked through something. Just like me. My daughter’s diary. I know I know. Maybe you despise me now, but it is just I was tidying her bedroom and her diary was on her nightstand and it just called me! Really!

She is the cutest girl. She is my daughter, that’s it. And I love her. But I know sometimes she gets angry with me because I don’t give her some permissions (for example,  having a smartphone at 10, or going out to the local sport center alone without her brother). I didn’t want to read any secrets, I just wanted to know if she has written something about me.

Guess what? I read only the last two pages. I didn’t find anything about me. And then I closed those pages, feeling so unease and guilty. I won’t do it any more.
