Well it is here at last, having been all round the houses Basso's cup has finally arrived. A very nice lady appeared at my door yesterday evening with the cup complete with ribbons. She had no idea what the cup was for so I told her the story of how he was nominated and won.
The inscription just reads THE ITALIAN SPINONE CLUB OF GREAT BRITON.
Today is not a good day in this house as it is the anniversary of the bus bomb and James PTSD is in meltdown and it is also the anniversary of my parents suicide so I am a little edgy too. So the cup is a welcome bit of light relief.
