Posts Tagged ‘Working from Home’

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

mixed blossomsYesterday, I would have been blogging to you but we had no internet, which is so crucial for any communication, writing and work-wise.  So, I start the working week with this blog.  I am no stranger to working from home.  Over the last sixteen years, I have become very experienced in commuting between Italy and London.  As technology improved further, I could spend more time in Tuscany where my man and I both have comfortable working offices.  Video meetings have become the norm and of course email has virtually replaced hard copy mailings.  But there is nothing quite like face to face meetings and perhaps a nice lunch with a client.  But these pleasures must now go on hold.

the house early morningAnyway, here in our lovely little bit of Tuscany, on the edge of Chianti, we are safely tucked away in our country home.  This foto was taken as the sun was rising on the opposite side of the house.  We have had two weeks of glorious weather, so much so that I have actually got a bit sunburnt!  Spring plants and trees are changing daily and we now make a point of walking the boundaries in the early mornings, to marvel at how life in the wild still goes on unhindered by any viruses.  Young fruit trees, fig, mulberry and pomegranate are in blossom, as are numerous shrubs that remain nameless due to my lack of knowledge.

Bench viewSlopes of wild flowers and fungi, our English Climbing Rose looks very healthy and the bees are going into overdrive.  Yesterday, we enjoyed an aperitivo before lunch and watched the dance of the Swallow Tail Butterflies swirling around the Lilac Tree.  So, the best thing I can do is send you some Foto’s to remind you that if you have not yet cancelled your holiday in Tuscany, do consider postponing instead.

2020-03-22 20.59.43We are very fortunate to be living in a beautiful converted former Monastery Farmhouse.  It is quirky, yet comfortable.  Our landlord had an artist come in before we moved here to paint this gorgeous mural on the sitting room wall.  So in the picture, you can see the view from my armchair, which we can enjoy no matter what the weather is doing outside.

Stag beetlePreparations for our rock concert on June 19 continues, in the hope that restrictions will have lifted sufficiently for us all to get together again.  Stefano, my lead guitarist, has approved the repertoire, so we will have eighteen great rock songs for you.

We were impressed to read that thirty-seven skilled medics from Cuba have come to Milan to help with the crisis, all experienced in dealing with the Ebola in Africa.  Also Russia is apparently sending medical help!  You will have read enough about the virus in Italy, so I don’t think I need to elaborate further.

The Stag Beetle on a rose bush in the foto, is carrying on regardless!

So, wherever you are in the world, we wish you good health and happiness.  Do stay at home as much as possible, it is such a very serious situation.  Please stay safe.

Salute June xx
