  • Another Suitcase, Another Hall
    on Dec 7, 2009 in House
    We have had the removal men in today, for 11 hours, on a good day that is a pain, but with a small baby (Truly Scrumptious is now 3 months!), that is a real pain, and still they did'nt finish, it will take another 3 hours tomorrow am. Where are...
  • Hanging On The Telephone
    on Oct 22, 2009 in House
    I didn't want to tell you about it in advance, as I knew it would be too good to be true, but last week we finally got a date from Italia Telecom to come fit our new phone/internet connection, they even gave us a number in advance (get this straight,...
  • Truly Scrumptious
    on Oct 10, 2009 in House
    Excuses, excuses. There's always a good reason for not writing the blog, well, how's about the blog-host (Typepad) fee's not being paid, and my account suspended, not good enough? ok, how about the fact that last week I became a statistic of the glob...
  • Hot in the City
    on Sep 6, 2009 in House
    Although daily temperatures are still high (ie 28-30 deg), there is a definite smell of Autumn in the air, and its obvious that Italy is back to work, as I received the 4th and final invoice (contabilita) from Chiasserini a few days ago, as well as t...
  • Living In A Box
    on Aug 18, 2009 in House
    At 5.45pm Sunday, Mrs J and I sat down to watch il Palio (live from Siena), courtesy of Rai Uno, but by 8 o'clock, with 3 false starts and fading light even the producer had had enough and switched transmission to Rai Tre, and almost immediately they...
  • 8 Days A Week
    on Aug 4, 2009 in House Travel
    Is it me, or is it just too-hot-to-blog? I mean, would JK Rowling have written so much if she wasn't in Scotland?, if you just compare her latest tome (at 600+ pages), to your average Hemingway, penned in a less than cool-Cuba (barely breaking 110 pa...
  • On Days Like These
    on Jun 28, 2009 in Garden Project Management
    From reading my favourite bloggers, it seems that its officially a 'slow blog season', perhaps its due to the crazy weather we are having across Europe, or else I can blame the 'day job', and a hectic few days in Moscow last week, but I have finally...
  • Long train runnin'In case I forget, the aim of the mad digging was not solely to 'do the garden', it was actually to 'plant' the LPG tank, and then finally the septic tank, the gardening was merely a sideshow, but a comment this week from my gardener seems to say that...
  • Ain't no stoppin' us now
    on May 30, 2009 in Design Garden Project Management
    I've been back home almost a week now from the craziest gardening weekend ever, and now there is nothing blocking the completion of Chicken House. I pitched up at 9am on day 1 to find Matteo already well in to removing half of Tuscany by way of his m...
  • Bottoms up!
    on May 17, 2009 in House
    Another week has flown by without any discernible progress on Chicken House, and it's all my fault as I struggle to clear a few days in my schedule to go down there and oversee the digger. Its obviously even getting to Alberto who sent me a mail on F...
