I’m a mother to two rapidly growing boys with hollow legs, a wife to an Italian historian and a chef in my working life. We love to travel and want to show our kids as much of the world as we can before they drive us completely mad and we give them away to a travelling circus. Life is about living and living is moving out of your comfort zone from time to time. We are lucky enough to be able to spend a year living in Florence, Italy as of next month. With bags not even packed, cooking functions piling up and kids footy, swimming and a social life rocketing along, we are about to have a big reality check!
