Don't Look Back

The cards have been cleared from the mantelpiece.

The Christmas tree has been packed away
& stored back in the loft for another 11 months or so.

We have eaten, drunk & been merry
(well I have - hubby doesn't drink).

And that's another year consigned to history.

Once again, as last year, I won't look back,
but continue to look forward
to each brand new day on Leila's Mountain
and the promise it brings.

Buon Anno, tutti!

Mangia Bene Il 1° Gennaio

We were invited to the Russo's 
for New Year's Day lunch.
Maria kept repeating the saying
'Mangia bene il primo gennaio e
si mangia bene tutto l'anno' - 
'Eat well on the 1st January 
& you will eat well all year'.

And we did......
