I also feel as if my English is systematically deteriorating as my brain no longer feels as if it has the capacity to be able to converse in 2 languages. Anyway enough negativity! I have just borrowed a copy of 'under the Tuscan sun' from the uni so ill hopefully allow myself enough time to be able to settle back and watch that tonight for a bit of a release.
