Rome: Muriel returns with gifts for the kids

Rome: Muriel returns with gifts for the kids

Today all of us had a very long sleep in, because my mom was jetlagged, and the rest of us needed a little catch up of our own. Hannah and I woke up first, but soon after we heard my parents thundering like elephants coming down the stairs. To our horror we found out that our shower didn't work, so for now we had to settle for baths in the upstairs bathroom, instead of the classy shower stall downstairs. The night before there had been a lot of thunder and rain, and it was still raining buckets in the morning. My mom then showered Hannah and I with gifts of socks, makeup remover and....Kraft Dinner!! Hannah and I then went out to get a couple groceries. Our parents were quite proud that we found the grocery store by ourselves in a place we had never been to...and to be honest, I'm quite proud of us too. Then we came home and made our macaroni and some soup for my parents (they also shared some of my mom's leftover airplane food). The weather had started to act up again (rain, then hail, then rain, then sun, then rain...) so we decided to make it an indoor day reserved for doing laundry and writing blogs (like this one!). Tomorrow we plan to get out even though the weather is not supposed to be that good, but we'll brave it anyways to see some sights of Rome.

You're caught up now. Yeah!

That's a shame the weather isn't cooperating. Hope you manage to get out and see the sights of Rome. Unlike me you'll be able to see the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain (it was rather crowded when I was there).

If you go to Piazza del Campidoglio (next to the Victor Emmanuel Monument), walk past the Palazzo Senatorio. You'll come to a viewpoint that has a great view of the buildings and ruins that make up the Forum/Colosseum.

And have some gelato.

Now that we are hosting beautiful bulbous Bella (I did not use the F.. Word )Hannah., I can see how she is the cat for your family.....Bella likes to eat too! This morning I was struggling to wake up and get out the bedroom door when the meowing started up...obviously I was the first up. I didn't dare feed her as it is Jordan's pleasure each morning. He explained in detail how he wakes up and knows he has to be quick before Bela the Bullforg starts her grunting. He says he pulls on pants and wraps himself in a fuzzy blanket so he can dash out the door to feed Bella as quick as a cricket. Bella accompanies him every step of the process meowing pitefully, like -Abby I think, until she pounces on her food to slurp it up, without pausing for breath...hum have I seen that before? Bella then stretches out on her side with her paws dangling in mid-air like a beached harbourseal dreaming I'm sure of FOOD. Yes, she belongs to you. Happy savouring kids.......Mare
