It's finally complete - we're just back from a lovely break in Sant'Angelo at the new house. Not entirely a holiday - there was lots of cleaning to do, and dozens of lights to buy and wire in (more to come later, along with a significant amount of Ikea furniture to be trucked in and assembled - in November we hope). And I spent most mornings working (those pesky deadlines again) proving at least that the EDGE service (no UMTS in the mountains) and a 20 euro for 500Mb web deal from TIM were enough to keep me going.
The garden remains - a couple of 80 year old olives should have gone in this week, and work will start on the rest in the autumn.
Nothing to do now but work as hard as possible to pay the bills!
