The last days of summer school holidays and Nonno and I were duly woken about 6:30 this morning by our beautiful grandson…he’s 8 in a few days and is very excited about it his birthday so it’s understandable that when he wakes early he wants to wake everyone else to plan and chat about parties, of which there will be 2, guests, food and of course his surprise gifts. As the sun was trying hard to show it’s face through the grey clouds and it’s still quite mild we stumbled in to the garden for our morning coffee. P1210598We always have coffee together in the morning, a ritual we have brought with us along with the Bialetti coffee pot from Italia, a ‘pick me up’ before facing a day at the skate park with grandson.
