A milestone for Mama

Twenty degrees at 10am, sunny with patchy clouds and a bit of a wind.

Carmine is fuller today than it was before the weekend, with people arriving for the Easter break, and we are starting to see more day visitors tramping through the woods and hiking up the hill. It's nice to see a little more human life up here.

Today I drove the children to kindergarten, with a large P showing in the rear windscreen and M. riding a rather nervous shotgun.

It may not sound like much to you, but for me it's a milestone.

Hi Louise,
i love reading your adventures in your blog, particularly because i grew up in Italy (on Lake Como), and when references to italian people (or customs) are described, I can actually picture them with lots of smiles *_*
Good luck with your driving; you'll be great: once you learn to drive in Italy, you'll be a "pro"!!!!
ciao
Marina

Ciao Marina - Thank-you for your comment. I'm so pleased you enjoy reading what I enjoy writing! Perhaps one day you'll get back to Como? L
