Sorry, it seems ages since I have posted anything - we have just returned from a holiday in Italy and the week leading up to it was too busy getting ready and this week it seems to be taking ages to get back into routine! I think I need another holiday!
There is always something special about arriving at a holiday destination in the dark. This was the view that greeted us in the morning from our bedroom, with Mount Vesuvius across the water.
I thought I would share some of the vibrant colours from our time in Sorrento in Italy. The smell of the lemons and jasmine will be transporting me instantly back to last week.
We stayed in a lovely hotel which was converted from an abbey. It was located above Sorrento and was surrounded by olive groves.
The sun setting over the island of Capri every evening was so spectacular.
The colours in the Meditterranean always seem to be so much more vibrant!
One of my favourite moments after a busy day of sight seeing was to relax in a hammock under the olive trees in the garden, looking up at the sky through these leaves.
It didn't take us long to get used to the warmer temperatures, it feels so much colder back here now. There are some more pictures of Italy but they will have to wait for another day.
Very sadly while we were away my sister-in-law passed away.She took so much interest in this blog, especially when I first started it in 2012. We shared our love of the countryside, dogs and the sea. Her family meant so much to her and she will be so missed. She had a talent of always being to find you the perfect present. I have had some fantastic books that she has given me over the years that I shall continue to treasure.
