Well, that’s that, then.
Just over 2 weeks of holiday and this is the first day back to “normal”. And it’s a struggle.
Still, that was the best Christmas/New Year period ever. We had many good times and great fun with lots of nice friends.
For F’s birthday evening, he took me and An and her husband to Al Garghet, a wonderful restaurant, just outside Milan. The place was lit up by Christmas lights everywhere outside and was very pretty, the food was excellent and the service was perfect. OK so it isn’t cheap but it’s OK. The only way to get there is by car (meaning someone can’t drink) or by taxi. But totally worth it.
Earlier, I had given F his present which is shown below:
They are, of course, imprints of the dogs’ paws, reduced in size to become cufflinks, in silver. Dino’s is on the left and Piero’s on the right.
Now, what the hell am I going to do for next year?
But now we are back at work. And I’m gearing myself up to really start work tomorrow, since today, I just can’t do it! So, slowly does it.by
