Posts Tagged ‘Covid in Italy’

Welcome and Benvenuti to all my Lovely Followers around The World,

As the UK heads for a so called second wave and the rest of the World is on red alert, here in Italy there have also been some increases in cases. However, restrictions have remained in place throughout, the surgical type mask is recommended and wearing one remains a legal requirement. Absolutely no gatherings of people are allowed and you should check the new tight rules for travel. Nevertheless, some people have become a little too relaxed, which has put me off going to the restaurant for a bit! But I would rather be in our little bit of Tuscany than anywhere else! For all the latest covid information in Italy go to http://www.salute.gov.it/portale/nuovocoronavirus/dettaglioFaqNuovoCoronavirus.jsp?lingua=english&id=230

At our last visit to Paolo’s at C’era una Volta Ristorante, my man enjoyed a delicous Spagetti al Pomodorini. It’s the sweet locally grown baby tomatoes that make it so special and tossed with olio and aglio (olive oil and garlic), lovely.

Meanwhile, I enjoyed Baked smoked Scamorza Cheese over potato and sun dried tomatoes; another electric Italian mouthwatering combination of flavours! We’ll be back there soon, just taking a little break!

Well, today is Sunday, the temperature is dropping and it’s raining. My man donned his cowboy hat and highwayman mac, to go up to Fiano for coffee. He complained that he was having to wear long trousers too, poor thing. But I’m somewhat relieved. Another couple of weeks and we should be free of mosquitos, which means we can sit outside in the early Autumn sunshine, without my being attacked by the little monsters!

So, I turn to the Italian fashion pages and drool over the new Autumn look. Do you like faux fur? This is the rage at the moment, I’m not too keen. So, I find myself inevitably drawn to the Luisa Spagnoli collection. The Autumn look here is to die for, but prices are back up to their original level. For some not affordable, others might consider it an investment. I just adore this gorgeous velvet frock and am so tempted; hum, need to sell a few more books first! But oh, I see she still has a lot of stuff in the sale, many lovely things as low as half-price, yay! Anyway, why not pop over to the site and window shop like me. Who is your favourite designer? https://www.luisaspagnoli.it/

I promised myself that this weekend I would go downstairs to my Sound Studio. I am waiting for some more backing tracks to arrive, so I can practice singing as if the band was with me. I must chase these up! Now that the covid thing has raised its snarling head again, musicians are having to think twice as regards newly planned concerts. So, streaming has to be the big thing for Autumn, some of the big stars are now organising live concerts on-line, which you buy a ticket for. Otherwise it’s about getting a proper job, as someone close to me suggested…..

Well, its now turning humid, which was inevitable after the rain and my man has decided against working outside. I will skip the studio, which will be too hot now and do a bit of voice exercise in the kitchen as I have my practice tracks there as well.

So, what are you up to this weekend? Do drop me a line either at the bottom of this blog or email at june.finnigan@virgin.net. Oh and do visit my website at http://junefinnigan.website

Have a great week and please stay safe.

Salute June x
