A very early birthday present!
Yesterday, whilst doing my bit at the tourist information point in our village of Amandola, some very lovely friends came up, bought me a cup of tea over from the nearby bar and presented me with a very early birthday (it's September) present. Norma knows I am mad about chocolate and she had spent six months embroidering a "box full of chocolates" and then had it framed. It's gorgeous! Only trouble is, each time I look at it, I feel the urge to eat chocolate....
