In my role as House Manager here, I just wanted to catch up on any loose ends for the past month.
1) In a post entitled "Hanky Panky With the New Upstairs Maid", I just wanted to let you know that this all seems to be just a flirtation and nothing more. Not just with Maurizio, but with Dario as well. Ester is such a wonderful employee, and knows just how to keep things interesting within the somewhat-boring framework of her daily job.
On the two days a week when Chef is off and I must make dinner, Ester is right there with me in the kitchen. The music is playing (as always), and while I chop garlic or make a salad, she is right there, cleaning up any mess I've made. And we discuss the day or the week, and all the unusual behavior between the Mister and Mrs, and we laugh our way through the afternoon.
It's such a sweet and close moment, and it makes me wonder if this is what married people do, if this is how married people relate to each other. Such sweet fun and laughter, and enjoyment over making a nice dinner.
I hope that's true, I really do, and I don't want anyone to burst my bubble in the comments below! Ha! Because I feel rather sure that married life might be somewhat otherwise.
2) In an post entitled "Common Sense?" I told you the Mister left the house in pajamas and robe in a helicopter. Which annoyed me no end.
Well, it turns out (and sometimes he tells me stuff himself, as he did about this), he went to his friend's horse farm to see a new foal being born from an important and somewhat famous horse that I cannot name, for fear of losing my job here. Ha!
It seems his friend called him up, said he's sending the helicopter, and out of the house the Mister went, no matter how dressed.
If you're this rich, you can pretty much do anything you like, morning, noon and night.
Before I go, and not that I'm obsessed with marriage or anything, lets look at Barbara Streisand's opinion of having just got married. Ha! Here's the fun link. And by the way, the scene in this clip of her going up the stairs, with all the stone columns and wood banisters is not unlike the house where I work.
Thanks for reading!
