Baking


Not much to write about today. We've discovered a great second hand shop in town that sells everything from meat slicers (our first purchase I fear!) to Tuscan antiques (our last purchase I fear!). And there was another market in town today - there is a regular weekly one on a Friday so I don't know what today's one, on Sunday, was all about. But they are great places to pick things up cheaply - clothes, cushions, eggplants, roast chickens....as below...




We drove past a "procession" of very old sports cars on their way to the Mugello Autodrome this afternoon so Ralph and Mathew went off to investigate but unfortunately could not get near enough to see them racing. We can hear the autodrome from our house but it's quiet enough not to be disturbing.

We did some baking today - I think this is the first time I've baked cookies in about 10 years. No there are no photos - I didn't want a picture of me baking to be available for people to dredge up in years to come!!

The below pictures are mostly for family...just some of the kids playing on the lawn. They have a "wonderful" game where Ana runs as fast as she can, and then Mathew trips her up sending her flying into the grass. She loves it...but then again, she is turning into a bizarre child!!

Ciao til the next time....

Love the one of Ana pointing to Mathew - in that cheeky pose of hers. And Mathew appearing to be really good natured about it!

He is actually incredible with her but gave her a whack today after she hit him in the face for the 10th time. I totally blame the red hair.

Now now!!!!! Red hair has many good qualities---Ana needs her Redheaded grandmother to help contol her exuberance
