Thank you

Hello Fellow bloggers
Ooh it's been rather cold here today
So spoilt because the weather in Italy was gorgeous
Yes l had a mini break in Italy (Lake Como) where my daugher
Sarah and her partner Mark are getting married in August this year 
They where there to sample the wedding food
And checked out the venue it's a beautiful place
l can see why many go and marry abroad
Here is a sample of the photos l took during my visit
 Daughter Sarah and her Husband to be Mark
 Beautiful views across Lake Como
 This is the appartment l stayed at
 Exploring the sites and sampling the Italian Wine and food
And the famous Harry's Bar the food lived up to it's spectations it was delicious
Can't wait until we go back in August 
Here is a thank you card l made for my neighbour after keeping an eye on my property
