I cannot believe it’s nearly two years since I was last in Italy. The world has become a very different place. People are trying to find a way of living their “normal”.

So like everyone else travel has been all but impossible. I’m grateful my family and friends have remained well and that’s the most important thing. But sometimes it’s hard not to feel wistful.

I’ve been away for a couple of days within the UK celebrating family birthdays and have been very lucky to be treated to this…this morning I woke up to these views from my window

And then I went downstairs to have a quiet cappacino before everyone else came down. It was the nicest I’ve had in a long while….a lovely reminisce.

I hope it won’t be too long before that’s happening back in Italy but until then it will certainly do.
