Roll with it

It’s been a week of highs and lows. Highs include making cocktails on live radio and watching a football game at Anfield – the atmosphere! – whilst enjoying a glass of red, obviously. And I love that it’s now cold enough for proper jumpers. Preferably roll necks, not least because they hide a multitude of chins (sorry). Lows include forgetting Youngest Girl had a wear-your-own-clothes-to-school day yesterday. She was one of only two in school uniform. That said, the other boy’s mum is a teacher at the school which, if I’m honest, made me feel a bit better. Keep rolling.

Current white in the fridge: Yella Belly Citrus Bomb

Price: £6.49 - Buy From Aldi

Proving the point that sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, this is a lime and lychee mash up. It’s a brilliant blend of three grapes – Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. The Riesling adds a bolt of citrus lightening, the Gewürztraminer a dollop of perfume and the Pinot Gris gives backbone. Fantastic value.

Current red in the rack: Chateau Thieuley Rouge

Price: £10.95 - Buy From The Wine Society

Gorgeous red from a great vintage, this is a classic blend – mostly Merlot, some Cabernet – from a family-owned chateau in the Entre-Deux-Mers region in Bordeaux. This region can sometimes come across as a bit too old school for some but wines like this one are a real breath of fresh air. It’s juicy and more-ish, just so you know. Absolutely made to go with sausages.

    Love, love, love your blog Mrs M … never fails to make me smile, keeps me sane and reassures me “it’s not just me” – along with a lovely little glass of something by my side, which I know I’m going to love because you told me so!! x

      Ah, thank you Vicks! Such lovely words…and definitely not just you! I tried to convince her that ‘zigging’ when everyone else was ‘zagging’ was a Good Thing. Then I took her to Peacocks and all was well x
