IT’S hard to believe now that just a couple of weeks ago, I was in Italy with my little family. As I sit here going through the hundreds of photos (!) and look outside my window at another grey day in Blighty, I can only wish I was back in beautiful Umbria enjoying the glorious Italian sunshine.

IT seems only right that I finish 2015 with this post. About our family holiday to Lake Maggiore in Italy. Because it was a stand out holiday for many reasons.
