A marvellous morning, I am up early to head off to the second set of lessons and complete the refresher course for HCCP in Perugia. As I ready myself, feed and walk Bobby and Jenny and check all is well for the service of breakfasts the sun is already shining, soft mellow golden hues, it is yet another gorgeous day here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House.
I hate to leave such beauty, but I must away for six hours in the classroom. Traffic is not bad, the roadworks around Perugia tamed, they have moved onto the second set of tunnels. When sitting in a queue on the raccordo for all of five minute I often remind myself just how lucky I am. My previous life in Scotland and the city meant all too frequently sitting for nearly one hour in slow crawling morning traffic, now after a mere five minutes I am already impatient to get on and have my first coffee and cornetto. My back still hurts, I am wearing the lumbar support, it gives some relief, but not enough and I know that it will be tough in the classroom, but luckily there are a few breaks…
14:30 freedom, I passed and am now on my way home to Bellaugello. Poolside the guys have been enjoying the peace and quiet that we find here, they are relaxing soaking up the sun and chatting, clouds flit by and the silence is broken by the odd splash as somebody dives into our infinity pool.
A bbq is planned and the table set, Daniela has done us proud in the kitchen, and I sweat as I cook over the wood fired bbq, it is a warm convivial evening.
As ever a great group of guests from many countries, some returning some new, a perfect balance, and the conversation flows until well after midnight.
