just booked tickets for Limi and i to go olive picking next week (not sure how much help she will really be!). whoohoo! it's my favourite time of year. we pick the olives on my sister and her husband's farm in Umbria, Italy.
the best part is that it's a great excuse to climb a tree and as you are sitting there dangling from a branch you gulp in lungfulls of fresh air and look across the most beautiful Umbrian countryside.
at the end of the week, we load up the olive crates, my sister produces plates of incredible food and off we go to the olive press where we see all our hard work turned into golden liquid. can't wait!
