Yesterday we went "al fresco" and had a coffee (well, wifey did- I can't stand the stuff) outside. It was so warm and sunny that we sat outside in the middle of January and watched the sun sink down towards the Adriatic, wearing just a pullover.
Until a large delivery truck pulled up on the opposite side of the road and blocked the sun out!
All the punters on the veranda simply smiled, made a joke or casually returned to their papers and conversation, and within minutes the van driver came back and was about to drive off when he noticed a couple of young kids with their father on a table next to us.
So the delivery chap went into the back of his van, brought out a handful of balloons and gave them to the kids, before driving off and returning us to our basking sunshine.
Just as they do things in England, eh?
