There was a time when the Sunday Papers were read cover to cover all before our first glass of wine at lunchtime on a Sunday. No longer. Now, I might manage one article in short bursts over the course of the morning in between feeding/dressing/conversing with various small people in the house. By the time lunch has been devoured, dogs walked and children sorted, the Sunday slumber sets in and I’ve lost my appetite for all but the Magazine. Maybe a bit of property porn at a push. But I can’t imagine it any other way nowadays: it’s all good (news).
The current red on the side is:
Villa Maria Cellar Selection Pinot Noir 2008, £9.99 if you buy 2 bottles, Majestic Wine Warehouse
Pinot Noir is an expensive habit but so is waxing. Smooth, dark bramble fruits with a good lick of oak make it that bit more serious.
With thanks to Milly for making my blog look so much better.
