Day 358 – Worth Waiting For…

We don’t drink dessert wine very often at all – not that we don’t enjoy it, just that the occasion never seems to demand it. Anyway, we had a very quiet pre-Christmas dinner tonight at home, and just fancied something sweet at the end. Out of the fridge came this bottle of 2004 Montbazillac which I remembered buying in Hompes in France in the late 2000s when we used to spend a lot of time there. It came back from France when we sold our house there last year and cleared the cellar out. Despite its age, and the mileage it has traveled, it still tasted pretty good!

Day 210 – Made It At Last…

After two pretty horrendous days traveling, we finally made it to Ibiza. A cancelled flight yesterday and a long drive to an alternate airport, then a delayed flight today, with the threat of being bumped at the last minute as the plane was overloaded. Fortunately we made it, and our reward was meeting up with family, and a fabulous sunset dinner…

Day 166 – Duck or Grouse…

I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!
