I am a young woman who suffers from a chronic illness (ME/CFS). La Donna Stanca, my username, means “the tired woman” in Italian. Baking is my passion and hobby. I also love reading (some of my favourite authors: Jane Austen, P.G. Wodehouse, Diana Wynne Jones), listening to and playing music (flute and piano), and birdwatching. I dabble in art and handicrafts, mostly embroidery and knitting.
