I’ve finally plucked up the courage to open a blog – a good few years after first entertaining the idea. Today is the perfect day. The first of November, and a public holiday in Italy (where I am incredibly lucky to live). So I’m NOT doing any housework, but spoiling myself with the indulgence of reflection and creativity. I’m a wife, a mother, a teacher, an avid reader and a keen home sewer and I hope to share my thoughts on all and sundry. Yes, it’s a total indulgence. Come and visit sometime, and let me know what you think about various things.
