August 6th – The Sweet Smell of Success in Rome

1999:  Awoke murmuring “sweets, sweets” (I had fallen asleep in the car on the way home last night holding a box of sweets and had been dreaming about them all night).  We went downstairs and found them but I was only rationed to three.  Did a war start overnight?  This was followed by a more stable, but boring, diet of Golden Nuggets and yoghurt.  We drove to Edons via the fire station so I could get my daily fix of ‘Denis’ the fire engine.  On arriving at Edons I spied mums supply of pear and grapes which she was taking for lunch.  I ended up taking the pear.  Not such a good move as later I ended up with a bottom explosion resulting in a bath and binned pants.  Tonight I found a balloon in the garden and discovered it belonged to Emma next door when it popped.  No problems; I posted the pieces back through the hole in the fence to her. 

2019: Off to Rome. On the way Zof realised she’d left her birthday euros at home. Luckily she has lots more in family cards stashed in my bag (along with the ring 😀) My name change has finally gone through but not the flight change. Tried to change at Ryan Air desk but they wanted nearly £500! On getting to Rome and our room this evening and, taking in the beauty, we have decided to pay the extra money for Sundays later flight but to Luton with EasyJet, not Stansted. Checked with Mum and they are ok to collect us from there at midnight! The room is amazing at Suite Sistina for Lovers. You can choose the room temperature, the music, there’s a jacuzzi, candles and rose petals everywhere! Lovin life right now.

I may do stupid things and make light of them but deep down there’s a reason and I love exploration, even if I cannot fully understand the outcome!
