All I want for Christmas…



Is that your families and friends are safe and sound, and hopefully where they want to be.


Most of Europe has been in turmoil with snowfalls playing havoc on transport systems just when the season was at its very busiest meaning that travelers were left stranded for days or having to choose longwinded means of reaching their homes. Luxembourg was also hit by blizzards and the heaviest snowfall ever, closing schools for the first time and leaving me without use of the car for days.


I watched the airport timetables anxiously as my husband arrived truly late in the night from Positano laden with fruit from our garden and  delicious homemade ‘struffoli’ pressed upon him by our taxi driver.


My children were able to return to their flats when their flights were cancelled unlike many who slept at airports and arrived home with only two days delay. We were lucky. I hope you are too.


Thank you for following my sporadic posts this year.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Buon Natale e Buon Anno Nuovo!

Glad everyone made it home safely. It looks like a winter wonderful there. I can't believe taxi drivers give out fruit and struffoli? We certainly can't say the same for taxi drivers here.

I have tried signing up for your blog before and have just tried again. I always have difficulty with blogspot signups - they seem incredibly complicated.

Ciao, all the best for 2011.
I am back at last catching up on all the posts I missed while I was away from computing while on an extended trip to the UK. I really missed my blogging buddies while I was absent from the blogsphere so have enjoyed catching up with everyone this afternoon.
I hope you will be back yourself soon with some posts, however sporadic. :)
