If you didn't know or if you're not interested (sorry!) England got through to the next round of the European Football Championship. Very exciting for all concerned even though they didn't play particularly well. I am no expert but I think I could have done better than the £100m Harry Kane shot that went over the bar! No offence Harry but hopefully we will do better in the next match against Germany (hmmm).
I know I always say this but we have been busy again. I am not sure where the time goes really. Sunday we went for a bike ride and then it was Thursday. We have been giving Casa Leana another spring clean before our first group arrive next month, almost there now. We have a new industrial hoover so Leigh is “enjoying” that ha ha
Mowing and strimming as usual. The weather is hot and sunny at the moment so a few bike rides early doors and we have moved out of Casa Leana now, a bit later than usual but it is good to be away from "the job"!
The sunflowers are almost in bloom. I have a thing about sunflowers. I cannot help myself pointing out the fields to whoever bothers to listen even though I know I have pointed them out several times before! It is exciting to see them grow from tiny little buds to enormous flowers following the sun around. I will post some pictures (obviously!) when they start blooming. There are fields and fields of them in the valley below Casa Leana. The farmers, as you expect, change their crop each year, sunflowers one year, wheat another or corn another but there are always lots of sunflower fields just not in the same place. That is of course the reason I have to point them out!
Well that's it for this week. Oh, we had an enquiry for 2024 can you believe?! It was for a school summer holiday week. They sell so quickly. And we sold another couple of weeks for 2022 and 2023. Things are looking good for our little business during the coming years and we're just waiting for Boris to put Italy in "green" so that all of our lovely UK guests can come on holiday this year.
Anyway, that's definitely it for now. We are planning a few nights out this week and we have friends coming over on Tuesday for takeaway pizzas and Prosecco in the garden - €4 for a really lovely pizza and less than that for a bottle of Prosecco - only in Italy! I am a cheap date...
Hope you all have a fun week too.

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?!
