Fortnum's delivered at four thirty this afternoon - why do deliveries never ever come first thing in the morning? We now have everything needed for an expats Christmas. The mince pies proved too tempting and have already been sampled. Although the trip to Assisi had to be delayed I did just have time to visit the florist in the local village this evening for some roses.Every single rose in the shop had been augmented with copious amounts of spray on glitter . My request for plain roses was met with incomprehension - why have plain when you can have sparkle? I came out with some rather fetching lilies - blue ! Tomorrows priority is a trip to the local cantina to buy enough Franciacorta to last until the end of the week. Snow is forecast for Christmas day.
