sono felice - I'm happy

§ Tutte le cose belle finiscono....
e purtroppo oggi pomeriggio ho accompagnato Susan, Margaret e Fay alla stazione per prendere il treno che li porterà a Venezia.
E' stata un'esperienza MERAVIGLIOSA. Susan e i suoi amici sono adorabili, gentili , cordiali, intelligenti ed è stato davvero un piacere ospitarli.
Ci hanno viziato spudoratamente con un sacco di regali.
La stoffa meravigliosa sullo sfondo è un sari da matrimonio e poi dolci,le famose torte di ananas, biscotti di tapioca e di nocciole.E ancora spezie, una maglia dalla Tailandia, il libro di Angie Scarr e depliants su Singapore.
Ops... ho dimenticato il caffè... ci hanno portato del favoloso caffè Malese e un pomelo. Ero così entusiasta che l'abbiamo tagliato, e mangiato, prima di fotografarlo.

§ All nice things have an end....
alas this afternoon I went with Susan, Margaret and Fay to the train station where they got on the rain which will take them to Venice.
It has been a MARVELLOUS experience. Susan and her friends are adorable, kind, warm, clever and it has been a great great pleasure to have them as guests.
They have wildly spoilt with presents.
The wonderful fabric on the background is a wedding sari and the sweets, the famous pineapple tarts, Tapioca and hazelnuts biscuits. And more over spices, a shirt from Thailand, Angie Scarr's book and Singapore brochures.
Ops.... I forgot the coffee.... they brought us a wonderful Malaise coffee and a pomelo. I was so enthusiast about it that we cut, and ate it, before taking a pic.

§ Stamattina abbiamo fatto colazione con pasta al pesto, torta pasqualina e tè. Molto leggera ;o)
§ This morning we had breakfast with pasta al pesto, artichokes pie and tea. Very light ;o)
§ Sfortunatamente faceva un po' freddino come potete capire dall'abbigliamento.
In lontananza si vedono i monti coperti di neve.
§ Unfortunately it was a bit cold as you can guess from their clothing.
Far away you can see the mountains covered with snow.
§ A pranzo ci siamo incontrati con Roberta. Mannaggia, non ho fatto una foto ! e abbiamo girato per i vicoli.
Vi dirò che sento già la loro mancanza.
§ We met with Roberta at lunch time. LOL, I did not take a pic ! and then we strolled in the Historical Centre.
I must say that I already miss them.

It doesn't matter if it was cold because it sounds as if the hospitality was very warm!
It is always lovely to have visitors, we are enjoying a visit from my cousin from Italy at the moment and are having a great time getting to know him!
We had never met him before.

Oh Rosanna! How super great this blogging world is! Did you ever, for one second considered, when you started your blog, that you were going to meet up with people from Singapore (and they were going to bring you gifts!) or any of the other lovely people you have connected with all over the globe?

Glad they made you happy!
