It's Mother's Day today in England. I'm not sure which other countries celebrate Mother's Day today - if any, I know that Italy and the US don't.
So this post is to say happy Mother's Day to my dear lovely perfect Mum. My parents don't read my blog on a regular basis as they're not online unfortunately - maybe some day...For now they just read when they can, which is normally when they visit friends or relatives. We talk lots on the phone, but having a computer makes it so much easier to keep in touch. GET ONLINE! :)
Mum loves Italy and just the other day she was saying that one day in the future they'll sell their house in England and buy a house on Procida. Procida is the one of the three islands off Naples – the others being Ischia and Capri. Procida is one of their favourite places in Italy. Last October we got the boat over and spent a day on the beach. It was a perfect beautiful day because the peak season had passed, so just a few people were on the beach and it wasn't too hot. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I'm not sure if they would really move to Procida, especially as my Dad is very attached to home. But maybe they could have a second holiday home there, or do as the very fortunate Italians do and rent a place for 3 months in the summer. That would be fantastic!
Happy Mother's Day!
