I have had an excellent week. We have had more bookings for Casa Leana (one for July this year, another for our 2022 season and two more for 2023!) and we have been busy, as always, in the Casa Leana garden - trimming hedges which is an ongoing task we have to do at least twice a year.
We also went out, not only out as the saying goes but OUT OUT! To the Mille Miglia, an annual classic car race which always runs through a town or city close to us. I'm surprised the week the Mille Miglia runs doesn't sell out sooner at Casa Leana, maybe we should advertise it more heavily as I love it when our guests get to see and do the things we enjoy.
It is an amazing event and even if you aren't into cars, it has a lovely relaxed vibe and the vintage classics are beautiful, there is no getting away from that. Comparing them, as we always do, to the modern day "boxes" they are a work of art. (Check out our Facebook post for images).
I think that's it, oh, we went on a few bike rides but I'm still feeling a little heavier than usual so planning on some more rides next week. It's been super hot here so we have to go out early to miss the midday sun - I forget what a lovely time of day 8am is - perfect for cycling or taking a walk! Even after all these years of living here, I love to stop and take pictures - it's ridiculous although it does give me an excuse for a breather! Ha ha.
Leigh, as usual, ventured a little further up to Convento di Montecasale on Thursday. I have never been there myself as it's a bit too hilly for me to cycle but apparently it is a very beautiful and tranquil spot to visit - I've promised myself to take a trip up there this year, goodness knows I need a bit of tranquility in my life sometimes!
Oh my goodness, I forgot to mention "the football"! We have watched both England games (Leigh has watched virtually all of the other games in the tournament too!) with friends and it has been an emotional rollercoaster as always with England but fingers crossed they will get through to the next round on Tuesday. I am sorry to those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, suffice to say we will be on a knife's edge here tomorrow!

Welcome to my blog...
Just a little insight into our lives here. After eleven years of living in Tuscany I thought it was about time to have a go at blogging when one of my lovely friends said she had received (what she thought!) was an extremely funny text from me, hmmm.. How difficult can it be?!
