Ah, 3 day weekends are awesome! An extra day for shopping, housework, or just lazying around & doing nothing! And today I went shopping, on the hunt for summer clothes... And I came back with a pair of flip flops, a necklace & hairclips. Rubbish. How is it that there are so many shops in Milan but I can't find any summer clothes that I like or fit?? It's supposed to start hitting the high 20s by the end of next week (it's about 23/24 degrees today) so I really need to find some things soon! There were a lot of tourists in giro today, definitely outnumbering the Italians!! But it's starting to get full on Saturday mornings now, especially in the centre; I can't imagine what it must've been like this afternoon!
One piece of pretty important news, I got my new contract this week! As with most contracts in Italy, it lasts for a fixed period, in my case, 18 months. So I can stay here for another 18 months! So obviously, I'm very happy!
One whinge though, the price of suncream in this country is insane. Over 10 euro for a bottle of factor 30?? I need factor 30 to start off with in Italy, or I'm in trouble! I spent the best part of 30 euro this afternoon on 2 bottles of suncream & 1 bottle of aftersun, and I just think it's a lot of money for something essential in the summer!
