Until I go to Chile next month I am not going to have a lot to say about the here and now because I'll just be sitting at a keyboard. Boring.
So I thought I might go back in time.
Now that the wonderful, clean, fast, elegant, intelligent, new Laithwaites Wine website is up - the Webbies having not slept for days, existing on bacon baps and coffee - I can see no way of getting out of writing a proper 'About Us'.
What's there now has been bodged about by many other people over many years - none of whom were born when Laithwaites started! So it’s got huge gaps and a few inaccuracies. There isn't really anyone else but me who can write the story - certainly not the early days.
I plan a short version for normal people.
But also a long rambling one for anyone too bored with life to care, or ...
... maybe for those of my lot who read this blog ( I know you do!) ... clearly desperate to know what's going on. Maybe they'd like to know how - really - we got here in the first place.
Maybe it’s for my old mates who look at this vast offices-round-the-world-wine-empire thingy, even bigger than Majestic, shake their heads and exclaim; "Laithwaite!!! Of all the ......g people, Laithwaite!! ......g Laithwaite!! How the .... did that happen then?
I'll be truthful, and if the Comments don't get too abusive I'll do it in bits as my blog on days when nothing else happens and stitch it all together later.
So tomorrow its back to when Laithwaites wine life began in 1965!
Unless there's an outcry!
