A house in Umbria and the blissful geography of a flat world


 

Tomorrow's aquarobics have been brought forward one day as tomorrow we'll visit an old lady - a very old lady! - in a nursing home to celebrate her 97th birthday.

During today's trip to Ulladulla we picked up a DVD we have had on order for a few weeks, My house in Umbria, and a couple of interesting books - The Geography of Bliss and The World Is Flat - from our favourite op-shop or thrift shop or second-hand shop or whatever you call it.

We don't call it second-hand shop. We call it the place where you can pick up an almost brandnew book which still has a retail sticker of $39.95 on its cover for a mere 50 cents.
