Desolé has been my word of the past ten days or so.  I have had the utter pleasure of having a couple of guys from Paris staying here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House, nicer guys one could not hope to meet.

Yesterday evening we had another of our great barbecues, this time Alessandro cooking outdoors and  because of the huge grey clouds hovering nearby we set the table in the dining room it was kind of surreal serving and eating a bbq indoors.  Anyway afterwards these delightful courteous guests informed me that they had early flight departure time from Rome and they were planning to leave at six o’clock this morning.  Obviously I offered coffee and croissants before they left.  I set the table in the dining room, ready with the cups and saucers, readied the kitchen, and even better looked out a pair of jogging pants and sweatshirt, which I left on the chair in my bedroom ready to put on and dash downstairs to give the guys breakfast before they headed off.

Well the best laid plans of mice and man can often go asunder, and asunder they did.  Late to bed, set the alarm, 05:33, woke at 04:30 went back to sleep and then slept through my alarm.  It was only when Bobby woke me at 06:34 that I sprang out of bed – he must have heard the car leaving, for me to realise I was too late , I had overslept and the guys had left with either coffee or croissant:(
