Not going to be easy to work wine in to diary today. I have three days off. Have shipped aboard the old boat with a crews of dogs. Not sea dogs. Just dogs; Max, Snoop and Alfie the French b*st*rd, (Henry's dog). Useless crew. The gearbox is playing up. I have fast forward or nothing. Makes the lock manoeuvres interesting. Wine? I found in a locker a 3/4 empty old bottle of Gobernador Oloroso Seco which could've been here years. Great stuff, dark sherry, if you are a bit disorganised. It doesn't mind.
That and some old Hawkshead beer - also ancient I suspect. Will see me through til the wife and daughter in law turn up with something chilled and fizzy to accompany our meal of creative cooking from tins. It’s raining! Wow! Had forgotten rain.
