A short message just to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
With the festive season finally upon us, ten of the twenty five tonnes of gravel shifted by hand as the motorised wheelbarrow decided to pack up on us for a couple of days, and not one but two Christmas cakes to marzipan and ice, I’m taking a couple of weeks break from Blogging.
I know we’re coming up to Christmas and it’s a time associated with children and what will be under the Christmas tree from Santa Claus, but we’ve been lucky to have been offered some toys of our own for the festive season, and we’ve been having some fun!
As you would probably expect here in Italy, the Christmas build up starts with food. Be warned: if you’re reading this on an empty stomach you may want to grab a little something to put you on, and I advise you to also have a tissue to hand – there are photos and descriptions of cakes and other sweet treats and I will not be held responsible if you drool on your screens or keyboards!
