Is it very nearly time for my holidays?

It’s that time of year again when I get itchy feet and want to be on holiday already. I though I would share some images of our Tuscan trip from 2008, back when we could afford foreign holidays!

Reminiscences of sunnier climes

The weather outside is turning grim as I sit in the office. My desk is on the top floor of a cavernous mill building and whilst the long-johns don’t seem to be working I shiver slightly as I weld my hands onto a small fan heater. It may be hypothermia setting in but my mind wanders back to sunnier times!

I would normally be feeling sorry for my site colleagues around now as they are mostly all out digging in the snow/rain/mud, but the central heating in here has been broken for several days.

So I post here a single image, the Devil’s Bridge north of Lucca in Tuscany. It evokes fond memories of ice cream, hills, sunshine, lemoncello, scorpions, and badly-built Fiat hire cars etc etc. Depending on how long the heating is off I may post further holiday snaps.
