Dear friends – this is it – the last post from home before I become a Venitian for 4 weeks. Hopefully there will be some great pics from Venice for you on the blog and some travellers tales to give you a sense of place.
I thought that I would be spending this week lazing around, maybe mowing the lawn and gardening – but as so often happens nothing ever turns out the way you think it will. The rain has meant that the washing and gardening didn’t happen, though I did manage to cook and stock the fridge for the petal. The boys knew something was up the moment I got the suitcase out of the cellar and they haven’t left me alone since – I wouldn’t be surprised to find that a dog or a cat has hitched a ride to Venice.
