One often asks what do you do all day with no work. Well apart from looking after kids and cleaning the house here in Italy.
Well when I can I love to paint and work with soft pastles. It is so beautiful in Le Marche what else can you do?
Finally this year i wrote and published my first book for children. Its only short but I got the chance to illustrate it which was very exciting.
SO if you are limited for things to do in the Italian countryside, get creative !! ................just never know what you can do until you try!
I had a good time anyway. Below is a review of my story, love to hear from you.

No moon shone on this particular evening, it was the darkest night
Not a soul in the village stirred without fright
The crying and howling came across the land,
Once it was dark and misty.
But warm and snug tucked in his bed was a little boy called Christy
The morning arrived with golden rays across the sky
The cockerel crowed as the sun rose high.
A welcome end of a sleepless night
A jump out of bed with relief and delight.
There was worry of the harvest not being done
Collecting fruit nuts and berries was always such fun.
Going to the woods was too much for some
With the howling and crying all night,
It just couldn’t be done!!!
But Christy was brave and thought he could
No!! Off to school said mum and put on his hood.
With a skip and a run he went on his way.
Not always fun at school with no one to play.
The kids laughed because he was so small
He didn’t like it, no not at all.
“I’ll show them,” he said
As he went on ahead.
To the woods without a care
A job to be done that no one else would dare.
In the canopy of trees
He felt at ease
Abundant load he had collected
This harvesting he just perfected
His hood was full to the brim
But then he felt some one watching him
Creepy and scared
He crept quietly as he dared
But who was this in the shadow?
