Regular readers of these pages will of course know that I am not one to comment on football, but interest has been raised due to my recent holiday in Italy and the friends I made there. For this reason then, I have put off watching last night’s Doctor Who (although I shall probably watch it now) and had the football on as I started to type up my holiday journal.

And now Italy have won. Arthur and Bella even woke up to celebrate with the Italians. 😉

I had a text message just now, in reply to my question about whether it was very noisy over there at the moment. Non si dorme, Emi replies. Yeah right. I can hear the Fiat 500s and their car horns from here.
