Casa Marconi
Casa Marconi

Just got back to Casa Marconi yesterday evening after a long drive from Puglia. Now I have just one week to see what needs replacing/fixing and put it right – not to mention have the whole house painted by the wonderful Nicola from Albania.

So far, the ‘to do’ list includes a new kettle. What happened to the old one? The first plaintive reference to its absence in the guest book dates back to April … Someone has also nicked the dominos and the bookshelf looks a little denuded. On the appliances (or elettrodomestici) front, I had a new washing machine installed last week (the old one only lasted four years) and the fridge-freezer is leaking – again as of last week. Let’s hope a good defrost will fix it …
