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

imagesIt’s a shame really.  Italy’s Rugby team are getting a little better at the game every year, but a little is not enough.  As English fans living in Italy, my man and I support both England and Italy and our hopes of victory in the Six Nations, still lie shakily with England.  But to watch England pulverise Italy with a win of 57 – 14, was rather sad.  Great that England have those extra points, but we would love to have seen the Italians put up a better fight.  Hey ho, next time I guess.  Image from the Guardian.

2019-03-10 10.11.40Anyway, on a much lighter note and what with all the fashion parades going on, I did spot this rather lovely outfit in La Repubblica.  But, as I was about to take this foto at La Dispensa this morning, I was approached by a very sweet local Signora who loves to talk about her one and only visit to London a quarter of a century ago.  So, I’m trying to take the foto for you, and she is pulling up a chair and kissing me on the cheek.  She is about four-foot-ten so she did not think much of the outfit I was photographing.  Anyway, I listened for at least ten minutes and understood about eighty percent, which is a way of helping with my language skills I guess.  Eventually, she must have seen my eyes glass over, as she  finally stood and went about her shopping.  Bless her.  Anyway, I finally got the foto!

2019-03-09 09.51.52Where was I?  Ah, Sock Shoes.  Now these seem to be the latest thing here in Italy.  They look very comfortable, but methinks you need slim ankles or long legs and preferably both to set them off.  But then I also feel the same way about the fad for trainers with everything.  If you are short or dumpy, they are so unflattering!  What do you think?

2019-03-09 09.49.40Back out there in the world of politics, which I have not talked about recently due to the confusing nature of everything, we are about to have the European elections.  Now my man and I are allowed to vote, but what or whom do we vote for?  Look at these two Joint Deputy Prime Ministers that make up the head of the coalition government.  They are like a couple of cry baby siblings, with completely opposing views, no wonder things are all over the place!  Listening to the rumblings over coffee at Fiano, there is a big desire to return to the Lira, which to me also smacks of wanting out of Europe.  At least by watching the way the Brits are cocking things up, there will be a lesson learnt on how not to do it!  Watch this space.

2019-03-10 10.10.42But enough of that, I saw this interview in the paper and whilst you may not recall her name, Giovanna Ralli, you will remember her beautiful face.  This Italian actress was hugely popular in the 60’s and at the age of eighty-four, still looks stunning.  There have been many Italian actresses who graced the cinematic screens over the years, more than you may realise.  Giovanna made her first film in 1942 at the age of seven and her last one in 2013.  She was nominated for numerous awards and was awarded the Golden Globe for her career in 1975.  Recently asked if she would be making any more films she retorted I’m eighty, why not?

2019-03-07 09.46.01And, here is another thing of beauty and made in Italy, the new Ferrari F8!  But what’s this, I here you say, they’ve painted it blue!  Now I always thought Ferrari were traditionally red, but my man who knows about these things, says not.  Anyway, methinks that whilst I need a new car it is too low slung for our dirt track roads, so perhaps not.

OK, time to get on with the day job, am a little late in posting this blog, sorry about that.
