There’s not much I miss about living in a country that is not my birthplace. Here in rural Italy things are harder to come by in terms of some things. For example, Continue reading “4 Amazing Libraries”
I spent a large part of June last year over in the UK at a very sad time, so it was wonderful to spend this special time back at home. It’s been hot, and it’s still hot so the garden is proving a bit of a challenge. Still can’t complain, life is for living!
Si and I got ‘married’ twice in 1998, both times in the month of June. The first time was on June 11th and 11am in our beloved Firenze (that’s Florence). Just the two of us, our interpreter, Mara and two strangers, Joanna and Richard who were pulled off the street as our witnesses. The film, ‘Tea With Moussolini’ was being shot in the square and on the morning of our our wedding we were woken by torrential rain! Simon had to do an emergency shop to buy umbrellas and we had great fun sploshing across to the Palazzo Vecchio where the service took place in the Salle Rossa. A magical time, I felt like a Princess – although I wasn’t dressed like one, as you can see I was determined not to look the typical bride.
By the time we’d done the deed, the sun was shining, and we learnt that the Italians believe it’s lucky to get married in the rain. They even have a saying, “Sposa bagnata, sposa fortunata“. I know many couples pray for good weather for their special day, but nothing could have spoilt this precious time for us.
I’ll share details of our second time, next week…
Tempus Fujit and all that…Here are some facts about June and a few pics that represented my first week of the month. My favourite bit about June is Continue reading “It’s June Already!”
