The snow is taking some time to shift… and will be around for sometime I think. A lot has melted compared to the pictures in this previous post and of course we’re able to get round and about, but impossible to get in the garden to sort the damage out. So we’re doing an online Continue reading “Still Snowbound”
Apart from shovelling mountains of snow and building temporary fencing to keep the dogs secure, my current Work in Progress – All Will Be Well – has now been professionally edited and proofed. Now onto finalising the book cover and blurb. My plans for January may have been a little frozen but the big melt has begun.
It’s been a while since we had as much snow as this and still falling… we’ve given up on digging out and shaking the olive trees as it’s now thigh height. Feeling sorry for those with damaged houses from the quake last year, this can’t be helping. Have had to give Nell a hair trim because she was beginning to resemble a load of pom poms! But she loves diving in the snow, mad dog.

Yeah! The edits on All Will Be Well are done, on target. That’s the first of my goals for this year achieved…starting how I mean to go on.
Yes, that’s right. Christmas isn’t over yet. Not in Italy. Today is Epiphany and last night thousands and thousands of Italian children will have been waiting for Befana, the Christmas Witch. I do hope that she paid special attention to Continue reading “The Christmas Witch”
Well, as forecasted the snow has arrived. Personally, I love it. Great excuse to snuggle down with a good book by the stufa. This was taken barely an hour after we got back from a sunny (but cold) walk with the dogs. Good timing. And I managed to get a good editing session done in the ‘writing room’ – 1700 words. So a good day all in all.
