The last e-mails have been sent, the polite reminder has been set up, my drawers have been bolted shut and I made a dash for the door; for a week, I shall be nowhere to be seen.
If only the flight wasn’t overbooked and I wasn’t left behind, waiting for another one leaving six hours later. I guess I’ll spend the time dozing and looking at the planeloads of vacationers jetting off from the murky, humid and gray London, off to sunnier – hopefully – climates.
I shall be back a week or so from now; in the meantime, here’s a moody picture of the hamlet of Antagnod, in Italy’s Alps, taken last week. The second hottest summer since 2003 and it rained one day out of two whilst I was there.
I wish I kept the receipt for that rabbit’s foot lucky charm, it ain’t working I can tell you.
