Jamie Does…Venice

Yesterday channel four offered me such beautiful tv that I could have simply spent the whole evening in a vegetative state on the sofa. Yes, that’s right, the tv Gods combined my two favourite things: Jamie Oliver and Venice. Who could not be hypnotised by the down-to-earth Essex lad, as he  energetically piles  raddichio and zucchini onto a huge plate of carpacchio? And not forgetting his gloriously British banter; even when addressing his parmesan as a ‘little bugger’, he exudes charm. And Venice? Well what a backdrop….even the Venetian Women’s Prison tempted me to emigrate to Italy and commit a murder or two to become an inmate. I am so so so so excited about my aupairing job this summer – only two months to go!! There’s just a minefield of pesky A Level exams separating me from my beautiful, beautiful Italy…
