Today was our cooking day. Lesley picked us up and drove us to her house in another nearby village. She is from England , but has lived in Italy for 11 years. She had Lisenna helping, who only spoke Italian. We made 4 courses. For our antipasti we made La Ribollita, or Tuscan bean soup. Our first course was gnocchi with a cheese sauce. We added spinach and tomato paste to some of the potato to make them green, red and white. Our second ...

Tomorrow we have our Tuscan cooking class,so be ready for more pictures of food! ...

Toys, toys everywhere

Lovely day today, weatherwise. It was all nice and sunny and warm an' shiz. It started off with Metta going to dance and me buying a police car thing for Millo. Us two then went to the park where Millo promptly went into a huff because the cutest little boy came over and started playing with the cars too. I don't think Millo thought he was the cutest little boy, that's just my input.
After we had all met up (Metta, Millo, Livia and I) we ...
