Dear autumn, It’s official apparently – you have begun.
Dear Friday, It’s hard to believe that you have come round already! This time last week I was in Rome.
Dear Rome, What a fascinating place you are. Round every corner there seemed to be something magnificently wonderful to look at.
Dear gelato, After fairly extensive research last weekend, I can confirm that Italian ice cream is very tasty indeed.
Dear local council, Why, when you have recently resurfaced a huge number of the pavements locally, are they now being dug up for some kind of maintenance work (replacing old lead water pipes with plastic ones is the rumour)? The lovely new smooth pavements are now going to be all patchy and uneven again. Could the two departments concerned not have spoken to each other and done the pipework first and then the resurfacing? I expect that would have been too much trouble.
