We have just returned from Italy (for Whitsun Half Term break) where we stayed for 3 days in Florence and then 3 further days in Rome. Pig heaven! The indoor writer soaked up the sights, sounds and smells for inspiration. Whereas the tame teenager just soaked up pasta, pizza and copious amounts of gelato (ice-cream to you and me). I caught up on my reading in the hotel rooms and guarded the books. (Handsome hubby doesn't "do" heat and stayed at home, how sad...)
The indoor writer has plenty of inspiration to now finish a short story, which she plans to enter into Bridport competition (closes 30th June).
Hope to publish some photos soon of our escape to Italia.
