Blog Break

08 Aug

*Photo taken by me in Lignano Sabbiadoro

When I went to Italy recently, I had grand designs on spending the evenings writing blog posts galore and sharing beautifully taken photos of our trip with you.

However, shortly after we arrived, Bambina took ill and ended up in hospital.  Shortly after that, I took ill and my mother-in-law also took ill.  Our holiday plans were scuppered, not least because of the sweltering 40 degree heat but because the germs and bugs had totally floored us.

This, coupled with an over obsessive foreign mother-in-law, a whole Italian family who were on a diet and watched my every morsel for ten days, as well as the most vicious mosquitos ive ever seen – it’s safe to say that our annual Italian paradise was more like a trip to the black hole.

There were a few glorious moments which of course, I intend to share on the blog, but there were also a few rant worthy incidents that I absolutely cannot refrain from sharing!

To make up for my blog break, I will share all of the above and more in a few blog posts over the next few weeks.

Now, must run and take the pasta off the boil… In the meantime, Buon Appetito!

    Oh no, that sounds terrible. Poor you. These things are sent to test us – I have experienced holiday sickness (not this time thankfully) but have been thrown up on minutes after taking off, have been shat on with runny tums and also took down the whole in-laws and bro and sister-in-law when we arrived in Oz with a tummy bug. Sorry to hear that you were all so sick.
    Look forward to the posts!
    Take care. M xx

    Oh no poor you! I hope you get a chance to go back soon and actually have a holiday. Look forward to catching up when you’ve recovered. Xx
