I seem to have become known as quella col cane = "the one with the dog". When I'm out alone, a lot of folk I don't know now ask me where Simi or la piccolina = "little one" is, something they didn't do a year ago; they are more reticent, surprisingly, than British people would be about talking to a dog-owner. Then when I phoned the water office on Thursday [yes, if you've been following the water saga, we ran out again!] as soon as I said my [real] surname, the pronunciation of which is beyond most Italians [and even a few British people!] the clerk exclaimed, "Ah, lei è quella col cane!" = "Ah, you're the one with the dog".

Here is a photo of quella col cane taken last autumn. Not many little doggie-girls from Cardiff, Wales can say they have walked along the shores of the Med!

Did you know that Tom Amos is a paedophile? He runs the following blog:

He abused my teenaged daughter and then started to stalk her.

Ah, to be able to dip one's toes into the Mediterranean! I did it once, in Cannes, during my one-and-only trip to Europe.
