Spot the difference!

Despite anonymous's plea I have decided to post the photos of our annual bash at Ceci and Cesare's.
Can you see anything strange in these photos?
Yes the first were taken 14 years or so ago. Personally I think the women have stood the test of time better than the men (what do you think?)

Caught you out Carlo!
Thanks for yet another lovely meal !

These sox were made for walking

After thinking we'd seen the last of it, it was back, deeper than ever before this weekend. SNOW
And yes, I admit it, I didn't go walking preferring to stay at home and finish these off for when I next take to the hills.
To complicate the issue, for once our weekend was a real social whirl with 2 dinner invites. Watch this space for photos tomorrow.

Uninspiring weather

The weather wasn't at all inviting yesterday and hubby was glued fast to the TV so I set off alone looking for inspiration.

And even though my walk apparently led nowhere it charged up my adrenaline and I came back raring to start on a new bit of knitting.

Tower of Rossenella

With temperatures still hovering around zero, we didn't go far this Sunday, just up to the tower of Rossenella to eat our picnic.

It acted as watch tower for Rosena castle on the opposite hill.

More snow outside = more cats in garage

...forcing the only one that actually belongs to us to wait patiently outside the front door for a prime position by the fire.

Festive frolics

Waiting for New Year's Eve concert in Piazza Garibaldi Parma.
Looking for Lake Calamone buried under metres of snow.

Freezing Boxing Day walk.

By the river...
As you can see we were treated to real Christmassy weather this year!
