Sporadic posting and looking forward to next weekend

I’m not the only one but, still, I feel guilty. It’s been 10 days since my last post! And, as a result, traffic is down. Not that traffic is so important, but it’s nice to know that there are people that read my blog (and I’m talking about the regular readers, here).

The fact that there are others who are also posting less frequently is not a good enough excuse. I could say it was the weather. It’s currently 33 degrees, according to my weather pixie. At least we are not flooded out like those from where I hale. And my sympathies. I mean, when I lived in Upton, many, many years ago, we had regular flooding in the town. A couple of pubs were guaranteed to be flooded out, maybe a couple of times a year. But never in July! And never so badly.

And, although I never suffered flooding in the house (any of them), I can only imagine how depressing it can be. I hope it clears up soon and you get back to some sort of semblance of normality and, dare I say it, summer.

H is back from the UK and said that it was cold and wet most of the time. I think she misses Milan, both for the weather and the lifestyle. She said that people didn’t seem to go out (in the UK) like they do here. And I think this is true. Certainly, we are out and about much more here than we ever were in the UK.

But I can’t make the excuse of the weather for not posting much. I could say that it’s because I don’t have anything to say. But that’s not true either. I have a lot to tell. Many, many things are happening right now or have happened in the last few weeks.

The problem is that it has been a very stressful time in one way or another. As a result, it becomes difficult to sit at the keyboard and think through all the crap that has been happening. Better, by far, to wait until I feel better and things are much less tiresome.

However, S has just texted me. She will be coming over for a few days and I really can’t wait. I am so looking forward to seeing her. We shall have the weekend and then, whilst V is at work, a few days to ourselves, which will be so nice.

There is a possibility that she will be going to Mantova this year. I do hope we get invited because, again, this would be such a great thing for us to be there at the same time and Mantova is such a lovely place for a festival and, of course, for the food and the general ambiance.

She’s trying to get us to go to Segovia as well. However, amongst many of the things that have happened is the loss of all my credit cards. So, at the moment, I don’t have any way to book flights even if we wanted to go.

Ah well. That’s life, as they say.

Meanwhile, just had an hour long conversation with S and I really wish she were here right now. We just have so much to talk about. Luckily, she liked my idea of sitting at a bar, a couple of beers, watching the world go by and chewing the fat. Sounds bloody perfect to me! So, a week from today, she’ll be here. Hurrah!
