I was very pleased with myself last night because we went to the painting class.....and I did what I was told. At first, I thought how on earth can I spend three hours painting on such a tiny piece of paper. But I did...and loved it. It was quite sweet really, because these young children were hanging around and were saying 'bella' 'bella' and then were really keen to practise their english. A gorgeous little boy, probably about 7/8 years old, puffed his chest out and said "my name is Phillipo".....he was so happy when I told him how clever he was! Anyway, it was another gloriously good day....off to the hairdressers later today - and then a meal overlooking the lake. What a life!
