Isn't this a lovely building?!
It is a 150 year old villa (this is really old for us!) that has been restored and renovated beautifully....
That Victorian clocktower in the background is still stuck at 12:51 pm, the time of the February 2011 earthquake. It is currently under repair.
I'm feeling a bit naked without a hair ornament!
This mimosa took my mind off the matter, thankfully.
Love these old sash windows.
And the detailing on this seat!
My starter of orecchiette with duck ragu and broad beans.
A lovely Australian pinot noir was just the ticket to follow.
Groper, caramelised witloof & pickled courgette for my main, with a side of Soft carrots, sumac & yoghurt ....mmmmmmm
And then back to Jo's....
This is Harvey, Jo's fiance's cat, who has been successfully transplanted from Perth!
He's quite the schmoocher.
I'm not sure when we staggered off to bed, but I am proud to say that it was after midnight!
That's late, late, late for me!
I need the practice for New Year......
Happy Holidays, lovelies!
