Venice

Last weekend we had a long weekend in Venice to celebrate my birthday and our 10th anniversary. We arrived to heavy snow! So much for spring time in Venice. We did manage an afternoon of looking about, but just ended up with very cold and wet feet and I can't say it was very pleasant.


So we were both very relieved to see sunshine and melting the snow the next day, and managed to have 4 days of sunshine and each day it got a little warmer. We did loads of walking, everything was so expensive at least walking was cheap! I got very inspired by gold mosaics and its been added to my list of crafts I would like to try, which is already very long. We had a lovely mooch round Peggy Guggenheim house and her fantastic collection and then did lots more walking.


And as I joint birthday and anniversary pressie my lovely fella brought me a gorgeous antique diamond ring that I have had my eyes on a while. Its so sparkly and pretty, I'm a very lucky lady.
