Bye Bye Rogoredo

At the end of the month we're saying good bye to our corner of Milan and saying hello to a new corner of Milan. We're moving to a bigger flat so I won't be sad to say good bye to the apartment, but I will be sad to say good bye to Santa Giulia. The next area won't be half as young and lively and brand spanking new.

We took another breather from the boxes and A accompanied me on a night time photo walk with necessary stop for cannoli. Why did the Sicilian bakery have to open right before we leave?!

Bye bye Milan as we know you!

Walking with the Puppy

I've written myself a list of 20 things I want to do before I'm out of my twenties  (yes, I know) and I've deliberately made it achievable. Some things are easy like 'buy flowers fo myself' and some things are harder like 'take portraits of everyone in my family'.  I've made a start anyway.

Some (not very) Milanese Moments

I just wanted to share some moments from this summer... it was glorious! Or at least it was in the UK. With the weather as warm as it is at the moment these pictures still feel seasonal, but that might be because I've been shut inside all weekend (we only ventured out for a trip to the recycling station and a coffee with mini cannoli) doing boxes boxes boxes. The move is fast approaching.

If you've been outside recently let me know how it is!

Harvest Sunset

Sun down Thistle down.
In the hazel coppice.

In a few hundred years time when archeologists pull my body out of the bog or whatever, they will deduce I was an agricultural labourer due to all the straw dust in my lungs that I inhaled that walk - but they will be wrong!

Sorry, was that a bit morbid?

Do you know what it is?

Mystery Fruit

Finally I tried these at the weekend for the first time after seeing them out and about in the mountains. They aren't tomatoes or nectarines. They're eaten when very very ripe with a spoon. The flavour is subtle and the texture rather... jammy.

Anyone else tried them and liked them?
