We were so happy to be able to invite our two eldest grandchildren Jamie and Tom and their Mum Vicki to come and stay during July, they had had a tough year and really needed a break. Jamie, 11, had just finished at primary school and was going up to senior school in the coming September.
However, the weather during their stay was extreme to say the least, hot and humid with temperatures reaching up to almost 40 deg C, totally energy zapping.
Thank goodness we had the pool for them to cool off and play in.
We invited up our friends children who moved from the UK to live in Itri three years ago, and they got on so well and great fun was had !!!
During their stay with us Tom celebrated his 9th birthday for which we held a little party.
Tom was especiallyl impressed with his special ice-cream birthday cake from the Fiocco di Neve.
The evening before their last night our friends Pauline and Filippo kindly invited us all to have supper at their home.
Thanks to Pauline and Filippo for a lovely evening !!!
Sending our love to you all.
We miss you !!!
