Living in Italy
Italy has been our home for 10 years now, and this house for more than half of that time. This daily blog documents the joys, difficulties and irritations of our existence.
We have our own intrinsic difficulties. My husband, Clive, is disabled and I am partly so through a scoliosis.
We have no family but are great dog-lovers, although things aren’t easy in that department either. Our eldest dog (a young eight years old) has been treated for cancer. Our six-year-old dog plays ‘chicken’ with the post van and has been diagnosed with chronic bronchitis. Our youngest dog (only a puppy) nearly died from the complications of a coccidia infestation.
I love living here. Clive is more circumspect. The earlier entries in this blog are by him and reveal a different attitude.
Maybe, by keeping abreast of our daily life, you will be able to tell whose view is the more accurate. Does the pain outweigh the pleasure? Will my writing betray a less rose-tinted reality?
Please note: I’m now continuing my blogging at Daily Reflection on our company website.
