Hi sophie - you will be back when you read this all Florenced out! Thanks for the link it was the right person - if you put the buttercups as plural you get another blogger form 2006 in America who is clearly unhappy with her whole life in cluding her hubby and her inlaws!! We have just put an offer in for the other prewar semi and I am off today (flexi) waiting to see if they phone back today. Thought this afty I am doing the charities as treat........We loved the house and cant understand why we had it as second choice. So heres fingers crossed I wont withdraw the offer on the other one yet tho' we wont go for it anyway - I think they will take if off the market. Will keep you updated x
SophieI am green again.. Florence... you will be smitten..it is an equisite place.. one of my favourites! (mental note to oneself .. put on list) Have a fabulous time~!I love your Steiff cats.. I have one too.. he sends his regards.Love Michelex
Hi Sophie, we are also a slight shade of green!!! Have a 'belissima' time away! We look forward to hearing all about it! Jenn and Jacqui
Bye bye Sophie! Farewell and bon voyage!!! I am green with envy, Florence is my favourite place in the whole wide world outside of home... actually I think I like it more! You will adore it! Everything about that place is magical!There's a great place if you cross the Ponte Vecchio, on the left after you cross it, can't remember the name but the fabrics you can buy there are exquisite, not to mention their homewares... wish I was there!
just jealoushave a fantastic time
Have a wonderful time in Florence - you'll love it. Lucca and Siena are easy to get to on the train too and worth the visit.
Best wishes and safe travels! Enjoy your special getaway!
Sounds wonderful to go on vacation with your girlfriends! Have a great time and a safe flight! I do soooo need a vacation LOL!!
Florence is a beautiful city so I am sure you will have a wonderful time! Humm...that passionate kiss in the cornfield was with a man she had only just met. OOPS! Don't let Tom read your comments. LOL! It will be sad not to see any new blog entries here but I will look forward to hearing about your very own 'room with a view' when you return. And after missing you, Tom will be giving Spider cuddles and kisses I bet. Have a great vacation Sophie!~~ Heidi ~~
Florence was my honeymoon, and as far as I can remember there were no cornfields close to the city, and the corn will all have been gathered in at this time of year, so dismiss that romantic idyll from your head (one of those ideas best dreamt about this week!)and have a cracking time with the gels. Red wine, ice cream and lots of leather shops. Go for it, Sophie!
Have a fabulous time! It sounds so dreamy!When I first saw your post, I thought that cat on your bedpost WAS Spider. It was kind of scary, but I have come to your blog before and been frightened by Spider in a frying pan, so why not on a bed post!I will miss you, but look forward to your wonderful tales of adventure soon,Melissa
I can't wait to see the photos! Have fun!(and now, I'm going to go google'Maeve Binchy'...!)
OH what fun you lucky cat-lover you!!! Think of all of us sad bloggers...still ironing and dreaming maybe someday we'll too get to go SOMEWHERE!
Ok, I'm back after my googling adventure~!I saw "Circle of Friends" and loved it, didn't realize there was a book behind it! Wooooohooo! What a great discovery to unearth! I'm going to have fun with this one~Thanks, Sophie, for the mention!
Have an absolutely beautiful time Sohphie! Have lots and lots of fun & frolics!See you soon love Alison x
Bon Voyage, Sophie!I'm looking forward to hearing all about your trip to Florence!Pat
Oh, Sophie, I hope you are taking lots and lots of pictures! I can't wait to hear all about your trip -- I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time!xoxo,MaryLove the bears, btw! :)
Oh Have a good time, Soph...bring Tom back a nice lovely present and a bottle of wine, then share it! Hurry home!
Sophie, Have a Fun Trip, Can't Wait to see Pictures, I know you will get some Great Ones, Sounds so Fun :)Angie
The Steiff cats are adorable! I've never seen those before, love em. I share your morbid fear of flying, but a trip "abroad" would probably get me on a plane too! Can't wait to hear about it. I'm also jealous that you know six people to go with!Jacki
Have a wonderful and safe trip!:)
Have a wonderful time.
Hi Sophie:I hope you have a wonderful trip! Florence is one of my favorite places. KarlaP.S. I don't think kissing Spider is unhygenic - I kiss my little doggie all the time!
Have a wonderful and safe trip! I look forward to seeing gorgeous photos!
Hi SophieWishing you a wonderful time away! Florence ... how exciting!!
Sophie,Hope you have a wonderful trip! And I love you pics of the cats. I didn't make it to Florence when I was there last year so I guess I'll just have to go back. LOL
Sophie,You'll have to read this when you get back I guess. So, I'm trusting your trip was remarkable and lavish!A few things happened while you were gone. I lost 50 pounds. Won the lottery and blew it on flea market finds. A cure for the common cold was found and lost. Spider meowed so much for you that I hopped the pond (on my lottery winnings) and gave him some comfort because Tom wasn't getting the fleece thing right! But after a few days - all was well. And the cops persuaded the neighbors to drop the charges after the party we threw. So don't worry!Hope your trip was fantastic and that pictures will be popping up in blogosphere soon.Much Love,Julie
Have a safe and fun journey. Look forward to wonderful pics of your adventures. Alexandra
Ciao! I am headed for Florence in April. You will have to let me know how you liked it!Penny

Lucky you. I have never been to Florence but would love to. Every time I suggest going to my husband he says it doesn't appeal to him! Looks like I'll have to round up some girlfriends to go with me instead too.

"Well, if you like that sort of thing...."I was going back and reading some of your old blogs and just about died laughing about that friend of a friend's comment. I also noticed you read The English Home. Is it the same magazine we get here in the States? I LOVE it and it has inspired soooo many projects here at White Oak Hall. Have a marvy time in Florence. I've been there and had a great time at the Uffizi. Can I add your blog to mine? Thanks, Laura
I can not wait to hear all about your trip and see your pics!! How wonderful for you. Love your Steiff kitties:-)Michelle
Hi Sophie!I hope you have a great time!! There is nothing like a great trip with the women in your life to make you feel alive and happy!!Tale lots of pictures for those of us who will probably never get to such a beautiful spot!!All the best,Linda
Sophie - you spelt Ciao correctly lolHow was Florence? I haven't got to Italy yet but I hope to in the next few years. Is there any bits in particular in Florence that you would reccommend?
I hope your trip was FAB-U-LOUS!!!!
Sophie, Hi! As I am writing this I hope you are having a delightful time in Florence and than a safe return home! Just wanted to drop in and say that I've missed your lovely posts and look forward to your return! Cece
Hi Sophie,I am so late in catching up with your blog ~ you are probably back from Florence by now, but I do hope that you had a wonderful time and look forward to seeing the photos.Marie x
Off to Florence? Oh, that sounds fantastic! Have a wonderful time! Love your kitties and that gorgeous rose wallpaper!!Michelle
Sophie - what do you think of the new 'Room with a view' to be broadcast shortly? I am not sure it will be an improvement on the original - its sounds like it will be very loud - everyone seems to be shouting - I don't remember HBC shouting - she was a lady....... Why do they have to do remakes all the time - if it ain't broken don't fix it!
Hi Sophie,Hope you have a wonderful time in Florence!! I am so jealous...I have never been outside of Australia!Look forward to seeing the pics when you get back.All the best,Kathy :)
Hurry back soo, we miss you!
I know you've already returned but I'm still excited for you that you went to Italy. It sounds so amazing. Looking forward to read your most recent post about your trip. The "Tom" cats are very cute!Alliewww.mycozyhome.typepad.com
