I've fallen in love

...with Italy! Hubby and I have just had a fantastic weekend away in Milan!

The weather was hot!

The architecture was amazing:
La Scala
and Il Duomo, which was beautiful inside too!
We discovered a market just minutes from our hotel on Saturday morning with stalls brimming with delicious, fresh produce:
and how about this for a shopping centre?

Gorgeous food, wine, ice creams...just the two of us! It was a real treat and the first time that we've been abroad, child-free, since before they were born! We were sad to leave...
but our post-wonderful weekend blues were soon lifted by news of our daughter's GCSE results yesterday: a total of 7 A*s and 5 As - we are so proud of her!
Back soon,
Rebecca

  3. Just found your blog recently and I love all your items.
    Looks wonderful, I want to go to Italy.
    What fabulous results, she has obviously worked very hard. I was really proud that my 14 year old got a B in GCSE statistics.

  4. It looks like you had a lovely time - it looks so clear and bright there and all that fresh produce in the sunshine looks fab. Many congratulations to your daughter - son no. 1 of ours is in year 10 and did just a couple of modules this year, with not-so-successful results! But he's got another year to improve things. xx
