The wanderer returns

Mmmmm. That holiday was fun. *g*

Everything I expected, and a little more silliness and refreshingly childish behaviour (like soaking each other playing around the Alnwick Garden water features).

Kate H, I'm sorry to say that only a couple of roses in the Rose Garden were in bloom, but I breathed deep of one of them for you - a soft, fresh scented one, with an overtone of apples.

We've returned to earth with a bump, though - over the next three weeks our kitchen is being ripped out and redone (the installers turn up on the 26th, but there's building work to be done before) and we're in the process of packing up and dismantling. I stupidly forgot to take a 'before' picture, but I've just taken a 'during' one which will do.

I also have an MA assignment due in a couple of weeks, and believe me, I haven't forgotten the writing...

Hoo boy. June is turning into a rather crammed month.

What's occupying your mind this month?

Sicilians ;-)

Welcome back!

Well, there are worse things, Kate... ;-)

That depends, Anna. Is he a nekkid Sicillian? Or a vengeful one? LOL!

Welcome back, babe!

>>Is he a nekkid Sicillian? Or a vengeful one?

Both - at separate points in the book and probably both at one particular point ;-)

Can I tempt you Dee?

Kate, it is your special talent to tempt me, lol. You're a good reason why I'd consider life with a tempermental nekkid european at all, lol. :) Hee hee!, WHEN will I be tempted?? ;) Hopefully soon!

Now I'm going to be thinking about nekkid vengence the rest of the night, lol!

Orange juice and ice cream. And lots of it.

I wouldn't mind a nekkid Sicilian, either.

So glad you had a well-deserved good time.

We interupt this blog to bring you another instalment in the nekkid Sicilian story . . .

We seem to have hijacked Anna's blog with talk of nekkid Sicilians - but then Anna's the tolerant sort, she doesn't mind the odd nekkid man wandering in - so to answer your question, Dee - I'm afraid you're going to have to wait a little while for the Sicilian - this book's out early 2007 in the UK - no idea of the USA dat.

But to keep you happy while you're waiting I can offer you a nekkid Greek in August and a nekkid Sheikh in October - Oh, and a nekkid Italian (but not Sicilian) round about Feb 2007


Enjoy the orange juice and ice cream Julie - seems to me it has all the major food groups in there!

Anna thank you for the loan of your blog - I offer you a free nekkid Sicilian book in compensation as soon as it - he - comes out (or does that give quite the wrong impression of the Sicilian, nekkid or not?

At 6:51 pm, Blogger Dee said...

LOL, isn't it illegal to say "hijack" these days? Besides, when we're talking nekkid Sicillians, lol, that's less a hijacking and more a reward, hee hee!

Darn it, once again the US is lagging in the hot Sicillian department. I'm willing to be assuaged by a nekkid greek--I admit, though it's a futile love, I still have the hots for George Michael--and a nekkid sheikh. But only if they have tans. LOL! If they don't, I'll be forced to request some extra nekkie vengence from the Sicillian, lol.

And what? We were supposed to see something in that last sentence besides nekkid Sicillian? (I wonder how many times I can get it in one post?)

Julie--LOL, ooh, orange juice and ice cream?? Moo had a bad thing for chili dogs. I would have loved to eat oranges and ice cream! LOL!

Welcome back, Anna. The rose sounds lovely.

Wishing you patience for the kitchen refit. Last October half term, I remember sitting on a paving slab (that shouldn't have been there) in my front garden, driven out of the house by the noise of the pneumatic drill, wondering why on earth I was having the kitchen done.

(Answer: because now it's my joint favourite room in the house.)

Occupying my mind - a gorgeous gardener and two Italians who need to wait their turn before I write their books. (Not Silicians. Probably nekkid at some point - aves to Kate W and Dee.)

At 11:32 am, Blogger Anna Lucia said...

I remember your kitchen refit, Kate! :-D I'm hoping mine turns out at well. *pleasepleaseplease!*

And the roses are out with a vengeance, now! I popped in on the Alnwick Garden on Monday, and smelled to my heart's content.
