What an absolutely hectic day following the break in.. Neighbours have been calling, the bar owner in the local village sent down the papers and coffees, others have done the shopping for us, and yet others have been helping tidy up the chaos in the house. To top it all the pasta fresca store has sent down lasagne for lunch. The boyz are now back home from the kennels and acting in a very reserved manner- clearly the memories of the night remain very strong for them. Neither of them will come upstairs to the bedroom. We shall take time to reassure them through lots of cuddles. The carabinieri have just been again with a large team of officers in two cars examining the bullet holes - this must make more than a dozen separate visitors this morning. Our lovely post lady was so apologetic she burst into tears - 'this isn't the Italy I know'.All the time we are running on adrenaline and ibuprofen. Our poor bruised and battered friends have left andf travelled on to the south.
