Well I am back
What a weekend…
First some of the not so good parts –
1. Starting a cold on the first night away. I have been waiting in hope of a damn good cold, or maybe even flu so that I could have a excuse to lounge around in bed all day, with books and Toastie and radio and lots of sympathy etc. As of last Thursday I had been waiting for about eighteen months, but no luck. No.. We have to start the cold the evening I leave for Rome – Sod’s Law I believe it is called.
2. No sleep the first night. The seven of us thought it was a good idea and we would get more sleep if we booked into a Travel Lodge in Birmingham as we had to be at the airport at 5am Friday morning…. When the alarm went off at 3.30am I was still awake… what larks!
3. Two pairs of shoes but not the right pairs of shoes to withstand the miles of hot concrete and cobbles of Roman streets – will try a lot harder next time, and there WILL be a next time because…
It was fecking fantastico! The most amazing, romantic, interesting, supercalafradalisticexpealadocious place I have ever been to. And not only was the place wonderful but so was the company, the apartment that we stayed in and the weather, all amazing – so lucky I can still hardly believe it.
I do have lots more photos but that’s it for now. Having charged through the last four days my body has given up and I am having a pyjama day before work tomorrow. The weather in Rome was so lovely and warm, and we have arrived home to flooding and the need to put the heating on so it is a good day to snuggle down.
Oh and Happy Autumn/Spring Equinox everyone!
