sounds like the the normal paranoia you have after a head gasket failure to be honest, I agree with what kandlebarrett has said above, doesn't sound like a HG and you may not have any thing to worry about at all...but I have been though this myself on a car or two and you do find yourself checking the temp gauge almost as much as the speedo and really are very aware of the exhaust and your coolant levels.
as long as she is A) running sweet and B)not losing coolant I would just enjoy driving your lovely 147 TS!
it's good to be mindful of the mechanical's but not at the expense of enjoying your drive...
