Today is my birthday and I have been royally spoilt. I have gorgeous friends who have sent me lovely messages. Sono fortunata!

Today was a visit to Ceglie.  It’s a small town near Ostuni and also the hometown of one of my work colleagues.  It’s very pretty with a lovely town square, pretty church, small castle and many lanes to wander down

The restaurant that had been recommended to me was fully booked so we had to move on  but not before spotting this


And being given fruit in the hope of a kiss from Cosmo  – this gorgeous fellow



To Ostuni for a lovely lunch sitting outside in the sunshine.  Two or so hours later we went for a stroll passing these two fabulous guys.  Now that’s how I want to be when I’m even older …. on a bench, in a park, with a great friend, putting the world to rights.
