I know this may sound incredibly twee to some but I made some jam recently - my first attempt with some apricots that keep falling off the tree in our garden making me feel incredibly guilty when watching them decompose. What a messy job that is (or is it just me?!). After I'd finished literally everything we touched in the kitchen was sticky! The jam is lovely though (a bit runny if truth be told) and we have given a few jars away to the neighbours who it seems can never receive something without giving something in return so we now have an abundance of tomatoes and lettuces from their gardens. So sweet.
We've been out and about as usual over the last few weeks, a few bike rides and another unexpected visit to Lake Trasimeno with some friends so that was a lovely treat. We sat around the pool overlooking the lake for most of the day with a break for lunch in one of the waterside restaurants so came away feeling very relaxed and happy.
We are looking forward to seeing our friend next week - she's arriving on Monday and then Leigh's dad and step mum are arriving soon after, so we have a few busy weeks ahead!
Took another trip out on my moped the other day - I am getting super confident now so we went and got a pizza to take away… I never tire of pizzas!
We also had a really lovely lunch in a little place in Citerna called Ristoro La Cisterna. Just a few minutes drive from Casa Leana. They serve lovely panzanella and bruschetta, perfect for a light lunch washed down with a half litre jug of their house Prosecco (or vino rosso) yummy!

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?!
