There are not many things I miss from the UK after 9 years living here in Italy. But I do love a hot buttered crumpet when the temperatures fall and the stufa is lit. Even better with a smear of marmite and a soft poached egg for breakfast. So I make my own. These are scrumptious, even though I say so myself, far better than any bought from a shop. What about you, what do you miss?

Feeling: Toasty – managed to keep the stufa in overnight and so lovely and cosy this morning. And looking outside it’s where I plan to stay with laptop and journal. (though will probably be persuaded to take Naughty Nell for her daily walk).

Our new drive is now complete with new gate and steps, we could hire it out as a car park! But after last nights series of wobbles
This has never rung more true than now. I’m sure we’ll all come out stronger in some way… I have to believe that something positive will come out of all the crappiness. Being a cup half empty kinda girl, I’m going to try extra hard in believing that the cup is actually refillable! Which is timely as it’s G&T time
Feeling: Grumpy, don’t know why just am. That’s okay isn’t it? (Poor Simon)
Feeling: Autumnal – lots of leaf sweeping today… I know it’s an endless task but it gives me head space
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Feeling: Tired of the Christmas banter all ready…
Feeling: Desensitised from the tremors – with all the work going on the drive shaking the house!
