Everything plus the kitchen sink….

I had a lovely day yesterday. I took the 7am catamaran by Virtu Ferries to Pozzallo using their September special offer met my interior design god friend and whizzed up to IKEA in Catania to buy a kitchen for almost complete house renovation project I’m working on. My Italian was almost up to scratch, I’ve been having the most fun taking lessons so it was really good to have to use it. There was just one misunderstanding, but turned out to be a funny one….

I managed to buy everything I needed except one door which I ordered (oh damn I have to go back next week to collect it….), and fit it in my pretty car before we headed into town to visit Cafe Prestipino in the main square for one of their delightful pasticci. Stopped for a quick coffee with a friend and then on into Modica for a mammoth cheese buying session. Well, it’s red wine o’clock and one needs a decent cheese to accompany it hey?

Had a terrible salad on the cat on the way back – I’d have thought this is the ideal opportunity for a Maltese and Sicilian company to join forces and do specialties of each island rather than Coronation chicken wraps and microwavable pasta? What do you think? 50% of the passengers are tourists… be a great way to promote ourselves.
