Hello from Morgan Le Fay for week number 2:

For the past twenty-odd years I have lived in Edinburgh but I am still a country bumpkin at heart. So, when my daughter asked if I might be interested in going olive-picking in Tuscany, I jumped at the chance. Since I loved Italy and was doing an Italian course, it seemed too good to be true.
Accompanied by a friend, kitted out in outdoor clothing and walking boots, we jetted off to Rome where we caught the Florence-bound train, finally arriving very late in the mediaeval town of Cortona where we spent one night in the Hotel San Luca. Despite our late arrival, the kitchen produced a historic pasta dish garnished with fresh truffle shavings that I remember with relish to this day.

The following day was spent exploring the ancient narrow streets of this scenic hilltop village before being picked up by our hosts. In darkness we drove up the dirt-track deep into the hills. Our seven fellow harvesters for the week were Belgian, French, and Spanish.
The first thing that struck me in the morning was the absolute beauty and tranquillity of the location. The ancient converted watch-tower was surrounded by olive groves and the views over the valley to the towers of Cortona were breathtaking.

I've just dropped in to say that I am pleased to see that the MM initiative still thrives.

On another matter ~ entirely different! The Supermarket Morrisons recently ran a project called Disney Magical Moments and a neighbour of mine needs card K6: "The Red Queen" to complete a set for her grandchildren.

If anyone has a spare K6 and knows my email address (from previous correspondence). would they be so kind to contact me to arrange for its transfer. Needless to say, I have some spares to permit me to reciprocate!

Best wishes,

Harvest MOUSE
Welcome back to the game Crofter - seeing it from the other side this time.
Hope all is as well as can be expected.

You may want to repeat your request elsewhere because I fear this thread will have very few further visitors this late in the game.
just got back from hols
