    No, boring old supermarket captain Morgan.

    Perfectly nice though.

    Much as I would like to "smell the flowers" tomorrow, some strange urge makes me keep pushing the pedals harder than I need to, and it then becomes a competition with yourself.
    Tomorrow though, as everyone else is either at school or at work, I perhaps should seek out a few more routes, as I'm in no rush to get back for anyone, or anything.

    Tonight’s tipple - £6 on a special (normally £8) at Sainsbury’s. Went down well with my pan fried Sea Bass. :)

    TBF unless you're spending more than £10-15 for a bottle of wine, you're not really paying much / if anything for the wine and it'll all be pretty much of a muchness.

    Working a 4 day shift over the weekend so when I got home tonight my wife had bought me 8 bottles of Spitfire Gold as a surprise.
    She refused to put them through on the special off er though.
    They are normally £1.83 a bottle but todays offer was £1.25 a bottle or 4 for £6
    Work it out for yourselves.

    I will have a small glass of Champagne on our Christmas dinner table.
    I will take a sip, that's me done for another year.

    That's enough to put anyone off drinking. Wine is bad enough, but making it fizzy? Sheer madness.

    Me :)

    Have a couple of drinks at Xmas and that's it now. I used to drink a lot, until I went self-employed and had to get up at 4.30am for work. Nowadays I just can't handle it, hurts too much in the morning!!

    Never drank at home, apart from possibly one or two bottles of beer at Christmas. Since lockdown started though, I have been consuming rather more, possibly 8-10 bottles of Hoegaarden a week, but still not indoors.
