Guess where we are going, correct. Now we have most of the telecom and IT chaos in the penthouse fixed we are going back to Italy. Cue a little more madness as MrFF completes the travel paperwork, declarations etc which he did enliven by entering his Italian biometric card as ID for the ferry, he said he thought he’d take the risk. I made him phone to give them his passport number, I don’t need the stress. He must be addicted to the push one to be given the run around lengthy and frustrating phone calls, he’s made so many of them lately.
We leave early in the morning. Our usual French and Italian stop overs are fully booked, it must be busy on the continent, so we are trying new places. I am taking far too many winter essentials with every intention of getting back to Yorkshire in November, I shall keep a very close eye on the travel situation.
I didn’t do half the things I wanted to whilst we were home, but yesterday was calm and sunny so after a little essential pruning, I cannot stand seeing shrubs covered in dead flowers, we sat out in the communal gardens chatting to neighbours. It’s sunny again this morning, the view from our balcony is gorgeous, we are relaxed. I doubt that calm will continue since the extensive terrace work planned in Italy will be right outside the lounge door no doubt filling the house with dust yet again.
