Well I was browsing for a photo depicting Florence, and this is what I came across! Sorry if it offends ;-} Apologies for the lengthy gap in my blogging, we have had a couple of health issues which are now thankfully completely resolved and have left me with a sense of live for the moment, really live for the moment. So the Italian Adventure is one I am hoping some of you well travelled bloggers might be able to help me with - we plan to spend a week in October (courtesy of Ryanair £75 return) travelling between Venice and Rome and I am on the lookout for some sensational places to stay in both cities and anywhere in between so any suggestions would be most welcome. I have included the photo of David because I would like to spend a day or two in Florence - I have been there before in July when it was too hot to do much other than quaff large amounts of Prosecco, I am still hoping for sunshine in October but not quite so much heat.
In the further spirit of living for the moment I am alternating between exercising like a demon and eating healthily and then a little of what you fancy does you good - dark chocolate with sea salt, champagne, white wine kettle chips and Crespo olives (all at the same time). Like Hestia, I am going to a wedding in November and have a target dress to slip into, so the diet and exercise stories will unfold - this week I WILL go to the gym, just paying the membership is not enough to loose inches unfortunately. AM says rowing is the way forward, the only problem is it is soooo boring, unless I watch Come Dine with Me as I row, and then I inevitably have to leave the machine to eat!
