Early this morning Peppe turned up on our doorstep with a gift; fresh cherries and berries picked from his garden and wrapped in fig leaves. Yum.
PS Update on the courier. They couldn't be bothered to climb the steps to my house so stopped the first person they found on the street and left my delivery with him. Luckily for me it was someone I know and he handed over my package a day later. It is still a mystery as to why the delivery was logged as 'missing', but at least I got it.
