It has been a bit silent over in GFG land, but now our house sitter has been firmly embedded for a week I don’t feel like such a twit saying we’re not there. Funny thing is we met him and his family where we are now. Their apartment was just 2 minutes walk from where we are in Florence this time. Green and J.C. (no really) worked together and it took them a couple of months to realize that they had partners with young children exploring Florence alone. Hmmph! Astronomers. Then Z,C and Bean and I explored together and it was fun.
Of course, this time Green gets sent to Florence (oh, the hardship) just as J.C. and his family are moving to Tucson from Spain. This time we’re only here for a few weeks though. We’ve been in Italy and France for nearly 2 weeks now, a sweet vacation before the hard work (for some) began. We got to see a dear friend’s mum and meet a ‘virtual’ friend I know from online and her family while we were in France which was fabulous.
The internet is painfully slow here in our apartment and I may have to just upload the pictures and tell you about it when we return. I’m perched by a window in a most uncomfortable and precarious position to get slower than dial up connection. Terrible isn’t it?
