Well just in case you had missed me - though you probably thought I was being lazy and not blogging!  We have just had the most wonderful nine days at Lake Como - the weather was fabulous around 30 degrees - so it was very chilly coming back home.
This was the view from our hotel bedroom - it was lovely and I really did not want to come back home.

One of the magnificant floor patterns from the Cathedral in Milan.  Milan was fascinating all the shops were very fashion conscious.  We did the Open top bus tour and that was marvellous - we had a great day there.
One of the highlights was the Bernina Mountain Express it is the highest railway in Europe and was quite breaktaking.

Another highlight was a lake cruise around Como - it was a beautiful day, the lake was calm and the scenery out of this world.
As you all know by now I am not one with the greatest amount of patience and I have got fed up with waiting for photos to upload - I could be sewing!!!  So I shall put more photos on later in the week.
All in all it was a really relaxing week and we fell in love with the lakes.


  1. Bernina mountain express??? Can it do machine embroidery too?

  2. LOL to Gina's comment :-) It looks stunningly beautiful. Lucky you! I missed you on Saturday but I'll let you off ;-) Of course, that means I'll have to come again soon!

  3. It looks very beautiful. The Bernina Express sounds great I use one of those most days :-)
