Well work really gets in the way of blogging is all I can say - but yippee I am back. I am determined to post at least twice a week...mind you the road to hell and all that!!
The sun is shining here and you can really feel the temperature hotting up. We eat outside most days which I love. Even in England we try to eat outside as much as possible. There is something very restful about sitting listening to the world...it slows me down to an almost stop - very Italian of me.
There is something I have notice about Italians that I love (excuse the generalisation) they seem content to 'do enough'. Nothing seems as important as having time to eat, enjoy the sun and talk. Wow they love to chat - standing in the sea on a hot day, at the cafe for breakfast, over food in the evening or over a slow lunch. Everything else is completed until it is 'good enough'. I think that this is a lovely ethos. What is the point of working 24/7 - where is the life in that? What is the point in a bigger house, bigger car etc if all you do is work. If I take anything from Italy it will be the importance of doing enough - and then enjoying my family, friends and the world around me!
Ah preach over! So on to shopping - anyone else spot the inconsistency? Actually the supermarket here often has a 1E sale when whole areas are brimming with everything for 1E - a bit like the pound shop in the UK. Well I picked up these little glasses and am very pleased with myself. Just the thing for the garden table.
