Well, I have no intention of talking a lot about my visit to England.  I returned early as I could not bear to be away from our little bit of Chianti, say no more!  However, I will just mention two things about my visit to Wells in Somerset; firstly I bought a beautiful hand crafted shoulder bag at the Saturday morning market and secondly my sister-in-law took me to a lovely artisan coffee shop for a proper cup of coffee.  Now you all know how important my morning coffee is and my heart sinks every time I get on a flight to England.  Then I walked into ‘Strangers with Coffee’ and my spirit lifted.  My caffè latte was the best I have ever tasted in England!  They are also a Bistro so we went back for a delicious veggie lunch.  I have left a 5* review on Trip Advisor!

Now, thankfully back in my beloved Chianti Hills I crack on with work and writing.  Then I find that a video of me has been posted on Facebook, filmed last month, telling a funny true story about my trying to buy a ‘Wood Splitting Axe’ at Mole Valley Farmers in Devon many years ago.  Now I am currently trying to work out how I can post this on YouTube direct from Facebook;  If you have any clever ideas do let me know.  It was filmed on an iPad I think.  In the meantime, if you want to see it and I would love it if you did, do become my friend on Facebook!

Well, the heat here is really intense, currently 39 degrees centigrade (that’s around 106 degrees farenheit to you Brits, Yanks and Aussies) and we have started having our aperitivi in long ice filled glasses instead of our usual cocktail glasses.  We keep meaning to cut back on our drinking, but I’m afraid this hot weather calls for long drinks with a dash of alcohol to help us relax.  And where is Farty Barty?  Ah, there he is in a cooler spot under the garden table!

Meanwhile, the second most popular man in Italy, Pope Francis, has been busy out and about blessing the multitudes.  He has reached out to the divorced and remarried saying the door is open to the children of these families.  Are his followers dwindling or is this a truly kind gesture?  What is your view?  What was that you said?  Oh, the most popular man in Italy is Silvio Berlusconi of course!  Watch this space.

Well must be off, time to think about lunch and a nice chilled Pinot Grigio.

Have a great week and do drop me a line.  You may also like to visit my author page at http://www.amazon.com/author/junefinnigan
