Home: exhausted and happy

Sorrento: some of these designs are over 1000 years old

We attended an American memorial service at St Angelo.

We’re home – what a trip! It was incredible, but exhausting too. We had such fun; it as a very late honeymoon and a somewhat early Silver Wedding present.

We got back Tuesday night, I went to work Wednesday and had the paper done by Sunday morning. Now I need to relax for a few days and let all the information percolate in my head for a bit. In the meantime, these are a few random photos from amongst the many hundreds we took.

When good bloggers go bad

I guess I should’t say I was a good blogger, but I was certainly a dedicated blogger. It’s fair to say life overtook me recently, with art exhibiiotns, work, an overseas trip to plan – and so the excuses go on. Tomorrow TOny and I pack our bags, and the next day we head for Italy for the LEGATO exhibition. Service may be patchy but I will try and update during the trip.

This trip is exciting for a number of reasons. Tony has never been overseas and I last went overseas 30-mumble years ago. We have not had more than 3 nights away from home together since we started looking after Mum 12 years ago. (But MUm has been to my sister for a week or 10 days at a time, but we’ve stayed home and worked etc).
