It's been rather chilly here, though the snow has stayed up in the mountains and there's been just the odd spot of rain. The skies have stayed mostly overcast with just a glimpse of blue sky. As a result, we relied upon some lovely friends to bring the sunshine with them as we all got together for lunch today. Conversation was good, old times remembered and plans for the next meeting hatched (Lake Maggiore, May 2007). The food was delicious, not to mention the wine.
We sat down for lunch around 1pm and got up from the table around 4pm. A great way to spend a day, I think.
