The bells

For some time the clock on the local church has not been striking the hours. Now that repairs to the church are under way the bells have also been fixed. So the church bells strike between 7.00 in the morning and 10 at night. They also strike the quarter, half and three-quarters and so for example at 11.30 there are 11 strikes plus 2. Its nice to have them back.

On Easter Day we had Anne from Mondavio and Elizabeth from Carbarnardi to lunch. We ate and drank well. Despite wet and windy weather it had been a lovely day. At 11.00 we went to bed. Sleep came quickly but at about 1.00 am we were woken up by a car alarm going off. It continued to ring until 4.00 in the morning. Couldn’t understand why the owner of the car didn’t go out and turn off the alarm. It was only today that we discovered it had been the alarm in the church. Water had got into the electrics and started the alarm ringing. It was 4.00 before they were able to get a technician out to turn the thing off.
