Another scorching hot day, so off out to the allotment straight after breakfast, for some more much-needed weeding before it becomes too hot to be out there.
Then back indoors in time for our Sunday ‘trip’ – this week we were off to Padua, a city we’ve visited several times and love very much. Good memories mostly of simply living in the place – food shopping in the local shops and markets; exploring the streets on foot, home to cook very simple meals; lots of time lazing on a shady balcony watching the people go by, reading and knitting (that was in the days before I came across crochet); adopting favourite cafes for morning, late afternoon and evening (and favourite ice cream haunts). Those were the days – will they ever return IRL I wonder?
I hope you’re well. I know that some of you are dealing with some very tough stuff right now. You have my love and thoughts and good wishes, and I hope to see you again tomorrow xx
