I'm back but not for long.

Dvorak is cracked! I'm still making mistakes and I'm still going slower than a worm but all the short, common words are up to reasonable speed now so it's not a wholly painful process to write anything.

I've got until Thursday to post as much as I can because on Thursday the family arrives: my husband's cousin and her husband. I think I might need to be internet-free for five days to be sociable. (Gulp!) They are wonderful people and we've got lots planned so I'm hoping the withdrawal symptoms won't be too painful.

Then on the 30th we go to Italy for two weeks. Yay! A week with my son and his fiancée and a week just husband and me. It's 10 degrees hotter over there than it is here which is great - I hate the cold.

I don't expect to have internet access and I shall miss you all. I hope you all miss me but I will be back.

We will miss you- and we will be jealous that you're in Italy, and we're not!

Have a wonderful time - and bring us back pics.

Thanks, Robin. I'll bring back some good pictures - my other half is better at photography than I am. Not that that's difficult.

Italy! Definitely will want to see some pics. And we'll miss you!

Sorry to hear about Rufus. I see he has a sock on the the scratchy paw, there. Hope he's back to his old self soon.

Rufus says "thank you", Freddie. He's not so much hurt as annoyed that we have a bandanna (handkerchief) round his neck and a bandage on his foot so he can't scratch. Well, that's the theory anyway.

Have a wonderful time with family and fun travels! We'll be here when you get back. :)

Now that all sounds like a lot of fun! We'll miss you, but enjoy everything you get to do and see.

Thanks, Sylvia and Natalie.

Handy tip if you're taking photographs of the leaning tower of Pisa — lean five degrees in the opposite direction and the whole structure will appear doubly imperilled.

Have fun.

WO - is there no end to your skills?
