Party pooped…

A few days ago, a friend and I talked about how much we were loving the holidays: everyone at home, no school runs, even relative lie-ins thanks to later-than-usual bedtimes for the children. The holidays are too short! I said. I wish we had another week of this! I said. I must have been tipsy, or showing off. Probably both. Truth is, I am really looking forward to resuming our version of normal family life, starting tomorrow. It was fun for a while but I need a break from mass catering and lunchtime drinking.

And I won’t have to wipe anyone’s nose or bottom at work tomorrow. At least I hope not.   

This week’s white in the fridge:
Tesco Finest Premier Cru Champagne, currently on offer at ¬£14.23 per bottle,
Sounds extravagant but just finishing off our NYE stocks. This is a gorgeous, biscuity Champagne with fantastic balance and long flavours. 

Not drunk red since the delicious Cairanne 2003 supped on New Year’s Eve with 24-hour roasted aromatic shoulder of pork. Need to top up supplies, will report back.

Bottoms up xx

    Took my decs down yesterday, everywhere looks bald. I personally could have managed another 12 days of Christmas.
    Will have to bet my brother to check out that Tesco bubbly, sounds interesting.

    I know what you mean, took our decorations down and every time I walk into the sitting room I think we've been burgled.

    1er Cru is fantastic, mostly Chard + PN, bit of Meunier, extra 3 months bottle age post disgoring giving it time to settle and round out. 2 more bottles left, no way they are going to see the end of the weekend.
