Meeting at home with Le Grand Simon and new FD Andrew to review the state of play at Direct Wines (which is what our Company has always been called for reasons I have forgotten).
We've had a good month. Could be down to that Expert's Choice offer which has done way better than expected or - Simon's view - things always pick up after elections.
Anyway, grateful to customers. Things going particularly well too in the US thanks to the inspired leadership of our Adrian (who started out in Railway Arch 36 with me) who was despatched over the pond because we had no-one else to do it but who loves it there so much has been sort of re-born.
Evening put new boat on river (Thames at Henley right by our office). 8 foot dinghy acquired for just three bottles of Theale Sparkling. Called 'Tot'. Made of plastic but otherwise just like 'Kingfisher' the 8' wooden boat my grandad built me when I was 12 ... gave me my love of the river. "Smaller the boat, the better the fun" is true you know.
