Santa Margherita Ligure

Views from the Lido Palace Hotel on the waterfront, where I have stayed twice before. I'll be back there later this year.

PhotoHunt: Protection - Alessandro in Fiesole

Talk about fun! On our trip in October 07, Alessandro and I cruised around Fiesole for a morning - having a good look in the cathedral, wandering around the Roman ruins, looking in antique store windows...

REPOST! This just seemed to be perfect for the "protection" theme! Medieval protection can be seen in this antique store in the piazza in Fiesole up above Florence.

This is my latest entry.

PhotoHunt: Purple - View from Sorrento

That's Vesuvius in the background. The picture is from my balcony overlooking the ocean, at Sorrento. I've stayed here four times. This is a repost, but I just LOVE it!

This is my latest entry.

Color my world

Alessandro and I did some bonding over pancakes at Maccers. Mine's the black Lancer and he owns the blue WRX. We have arguments over whose canon exhaust is bigger.

PhotoHunt: Triangle - cherry pie

I baked it myself, and cut it into triangular pieces. It was SO delicious!

Nine on the ninth - for April 2009

I went to work this morning and saw my senior colleague setting up an Easter egg hunt for his class.

Then he sent around rosemary for us all to pin on our shirts. We all went into the hall, past the digger's slouch hat, and the World War One helmet in between the Australian and New Zealand flags.

You see, my wonderful colleague had arranged an ANZAC day assembly for us complete with Catafalque Party from the navy.

Then in the afternoon we farewelled my beautiful principal who has retired, and I went home to a piece of comfort pie.
