When I travel I always have the best intentions of maintaining my blogs, but of course that never happens!
I have begged off lunch in Venice today to catch up on some things in my work life, but when you are staying on the Grand Canal it is always easy to be distracted!
It didn’t help that when I ducked out to the supermarket I was discovered by friends and “forced” to stop for pre-lunch drinks!
I finished Mary Balogh’s latest the other day, and loved it to pieces (I honestly don’t ever cry, but this is one of four of thousands of books I’ve read that nearly made me). However, there won’t be a review until I return home in March.
I am now in the process of reading a bunch of Australian books by women writers, as I am to moderate at the Jugiong Writers’ Festival shortly after I return home:
I am also now reading a review copy of Eloisa James’ latest book – my first by this very famous author! It is great so far.
However, I am in Venice at Carnevale, the most important time of the year, there are people in spectacular costumes everywhere, and our long-term Italian friends (who we’ve known since living in India many years ago) have driven here from Asti to spend time with us. So I am falling behind.
My Italian-language skills are becoming terrible, because these days so many people speak English.
I am sorry for all the typos I am sure are in this post, but I have no proper computer at the moment!
I am also sorry for not responding to people. It is not on purpose!
