Although I am horrendously busy with work, things are by no means all bad. On the contrary, it's almost a relief to have so much work. And things are also very good in other parts of life (even before we come to the football).
My own personal triumph, soon to be completed, is that I have successfully lured Chelsea Boy away from his friends, his family and most importantly his football club, and he is coming to live with me here in Rome. Woot!
Well, ok, he may retain some passing interest in the aforesaid friends/family/forces of darkness, but basically I win, right? I mean, he is giving up his season-ticket, and his job working at the club he loves... and is already considering getting a season-ticket in the Sud with me. hahaha. In return I will... er... let him watch Chelsea on the telly sometimes?
We have found a place to live, which super-excitingly is in San Lorenzo. He arrives, and we move in, on 1 June. We will be sharing with a pair of scientists, two blokes from down south (inevitably). The bedroom is huge and has its own balcony. I think it's going to be pretty cool.
