The recession may not be doing the exchange rate any good but it is certainly helping me in my effort to refurbish my wardrobe. [I have lost so much weight that nothing fits and some things just can't be successfully altered.]

Having picked this up for 21 euros on Thursday,

I went back to the shop today to get a similar black one. ["If you hum and haw, it will be gone" - that's my motto.]

"Regolato, signora, regolato" [="Given away"], said the shopkeeper as I took my leave.

Italian shopkeepers, it must be said, have never been afraid to genuinely slash prices, particularly when it comes to fashion, for no Italian wants last season's designs, however attractive the price. So I've seen 70% reductions here before, but never have I seen sales continue for so long. Carpe diem.

Hope you are recovering well and gaining some of that weight back

Thanks, Valleys Mam. I am much better but I don't want to put it back on!
