[Friday 8th September]
For no particular reason I was in the mood for going out for a slap-up meal tonight. So after work we decided to head over to the little Italian place near to our apartment. We've been a couple of times before, and the food is always good, but tonight it seemed especially good - I had a very nice pizza and also what I think is their best dish - gnocchi with porcini. Very rich indeed. We even pushed the boat out and had dessert - I can't remember the name of what I had, but it was basically a cup of espresso and a lump of ice cream - the idea being you pour the hot espresso over the ice cream. Sounds a bit of a mess but it was actually very nice.
When we got back home, we watched a Studio Ghibli film about raccoons. I was surprised by just how much enjoyed it - albeit a bit odd and even a bit macabre in places.
