Scorpion No.3


Scorpion No.3 found this evening in the folds of the lounge curtain...will take a picture the next time.

Today was a brilliant day. We managed a siesta after lunch - Ralph and Mathew worked the pizza oven, Ana slept, and I lazed in the sun with an espresso and a book. Every now and then I dragged myself up to sweep a floor or hang up a wash...or to peer into the pizza oven to check on progress...or to eat the results of the pizza oven.

Ralph's dad arrived this evening with the rest of our stuff. He is here until Sunday...our first official visitor. The red wine is flowing, Katie Melua is on the stereo and, apart from the discovery of the abovementioned scorpion, it's a wonderful evening.

Life is good.

By the way you were 'talking' i thought the place was crawling with scorpions!!

On the other hand - if you are getting to lye in the sun in a glorious garden with the smells of Ralph and Mathew's cooking - mmmmm sounds like you guys just found heaven!
