Tuscan Sloth

I seem to have succumbed to the "Tuscan Sloth" affliction which can hit at any time here in Tuscany. It seems to creep up on you gradually, until you realise that you haven't done anything constructive in weeks! Including writing in this blog - so my apologies for not keeping this up to date.

The last week was filled with friends from New Zealand and The Hague. Six adults and six children...a very full house indeed. And we loved every minute of it. Here are some pictures of us hanging out around the place, our first night together and of course an example of the food we ate all week!

The changing of the guard happened on Friday, with my parents arriving and Andrea and Mark leaving. Mindy and kids left today - due back again in a couple of weeks.

Today we invited to lunch an ex-colleague of mine who arrived in Italy four years ago on holiday and has never left. We had a wonderful time with her and it's great knowing an English speaker here as the lack of language is a bit daunting after a while.

The next couple of weeks are filled with family - and the first babysitting offer has already been voiced so Ralph and I are off for our first dinner out together tomorrow evening. Tuscan romance is in the air - I can feel it!

What an idyllic - comfortable - time you guys seemed to have had with friends. And the food - Oh the food.
