First of all I hope you are all well and as happy as it's possible to be in your various worlds.
Please don't think that because I don't post that I am not about and thinking about you guys. It's great to see that most of you are still posting and keeping the LJ flag flying, makes me even more ashamed of myself but at the same time glad that there is still somewhere to come *home* to, if that makes sense.
This year alone we have had 2 weddings in my family, my middle son Giancarlo married the wonderful Fotini last Dec 29th and my eldest son Francesco remarried the nightmare that is Kelly on 3rd August.......we all put a brave face on it and I shall keep my mouth shut for my son and granddaughters sake because I know what this woman is capable of..........but that leopard will never change it's spots, she is in my gun sights.

This year I will be celebrating my 60th birthday, there will be a late afternoon party for my family and close friends and my sisters are taking me to London to see Jersey Boys - my husband is taking me to Italy for a week at the beginning of Dec and we are going up to London to see Crosby, Stills and Nash at the Royal Albert Hall next Tuesday.....not a bad start to my celebrations which I plan will last for the next year!!! I am a lucky lady.
The Grandchildren are growing fast Jake is 17 and studying aeronautical engineering, Ben is 14 and just starting his GCSE studies, Ffion is 12 and doing well at school, she has just secured the lead junior role in the local pantomime and earlier this year was the Cat in a Hat in Suessical the Musical with a local theatre group, little Effie is 2 years old and capable of holding a conversation with no trouble although they usually revolve around Peppa Pig and biscuits! - she is adorable!

Myself and Pietro are doing well, he has some problems with his knees which we are in the process of getting sorted but to be honest I believe it is wear and tear - he has been working hard for 40 odd years so it's to be expected - just have to see what needs to be done to make things a little easier for him, he has bought himself a bicycle which should help as long as he doesn't overdo it.

The hotel is busy we have done so many weddings this year, some weeks we have had 3 weddings and then a christening on the Sunday and it's looking the same for next year. My husband is a perfectionist and this has helped our reputation to grow in the area. Also the hotel is a beautiful setting.

Well my lovely and good friends, I am not going to apologise for being an absent friend, just going to do better and be *home* more often.
Love and ((((((HUGS))))to you all.
