Un Ballo in Maschera

For a long time now we have spent new year with a particular group of friends. It’s getting to the stage where it just wouldn’t feel like new year without them. You might remember that we went to Florence one year and last year we went to Whitby (yeah, you can hold your ‘sublime to […]

Back to reality

We’re home – welcomed at the door by the cat who has since not left my side (aw – she missed me!). And now we have chores, chores, chores to look forward to. Tomorrow we gird our loins and visit the allotment. In the meantime, I have uploaded our holiday photos here so you can […]

The Pumpkin Soup engineering project

Having survived my Italian exam without sounding too much like an idiot (though it did feel like the longest 12 minutes of my life) I treated myself by hot-footing it down to the allotment and dragging my long-suffering assistant with me.

In bocca al lupo

Today I have a day off work which has actually coincided with gorgeous sunshiney weather. Alas, I have a day off work because I have my Italian oral exam in the early evening. Still, I have been taking advantage of the conditions to plant out my strawberries in the garden while practising my presentation: “Vorrei […]
