Greeting friends, from chic Milano! We have been most unstylish in this stylish city for just a few days and leave tomorrow for the reputedly gorgeous Como region – but more of that another time. This morning found me in mild hysterics, sobbing over the keyboard and beseeching this blog to load – all to no avail; the page remained stubbornly, heartbreaking blank. Never having been one to take these little set-backs in a laid back fashion, I wept, raged, rent my clothing and hyperventilated. When none of that changed the situation I contacted my server who informed me that an up-grade (about which I had been informed) meant air-silence for me for 2-4 hours. I decided that I could probably cope with that and went out for brunch instead. Voila! When we arrived back in our hotel room, all was as it should be.
To celebrate the successful escape from this close brush with collapse I am launching a little competition – with special thanks to Everten who have supplied a fittingly stylish prize. The loot in question is a set of three Mastrad 100 ml, double walled glasses – ideal for individual desserts or injections of heart-starting espresso coffee. Mastrad is a French company specialising in stylish, functional and high quality kitchen accessories and these glasses – being made of heatproof borosilicate glass which is thicker than easily broken, similar products – exemplify these qualities.
