Sweet sorrow

Our six month annual stay in Tuscany ends in forty eight hours. This summer has been bittersweet, but I’ll dwell on the sweet.
Amazing times: walks in the beautiful Apennines, discovering ruined houses that whisper stories to me. The children coming to visit with partners and little ones. Making new friends in the area. Our return to Sicily after forty years. Meeting ‘virtual friends’ from all over the globe and coming across relatives in America and New Zealand. All this thanks to clumsy forays into internet marketing for my writing. What a bonus. I’m not hibernating in England. Far from it. My books are being republished next month by Endeavour Press. Watch this space and thank you for joining me on this journey.


About Angela Petch

Bit of a story dreamer, written two novels - a third in progress. I love my little family and in no particular order afterwards: Italian culture, food, wine, walking everywhere I can and especially in the Apennines, East Africa, tennis when I can, reading, reading and more reading. So much to discover still before I die.

    Thanks, Jessie. We’re all on journeys, aren’t we? On this leg, we will be trailing bottles of wine, jars of home-grown vegetables, etc etc behind us. It would be great to travel less like a gypsy – but it is interesting and we are very lucky….oh and not to mention the 14 panettone we are bringing back for various people!!! Thanks for commenting, Jessie.

    It seems poetic that your journey home coincides with a new chapter in your life as a writer. Good luck!
