A big thanks to all of you who left messages of support regarding my mother in law. I’m pleased to be able to say that, although she is still in hospital, she is making progress, and is feeling a lot less poorly than she was a couple of weeks ago when she was rushed into hospital with breathing difficulties.
My other half is relieved, as you would imagine, but knows that her mum is not out of the woods just yet. Still, things are looking up, which is good news.
The downside is that our proposed holiday in Corsica has been cancelled because my other half wants to spend some time with her mum this summer.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
Not going away will be a bit of a shame, and I was looking forward to touring the interesting French isle, but, I can understand why my other half feels that she will be too far away if things start looking bad.
Looks as though summer will be a little quiet this year, but, then again, there are plenty of places around Genova that I’ve never seen, but would very much like to. Lots of fodder for my camera too!
Clouds often do have silver linings.
