I have popped in and out this week, posted a few little msgs,and have lurked and read quite a few posts, and have noticed things seem to have got a little fraught this week....

DH in bed, cats asleep, tv off!

soooo I thought a few glasses of wine brew and cupcake for anyone driving/tea total smile

The wine is on the left as you walk in, brew and [cupcakes] on the right, coffee is in the perculator next to the microwave, just help yourselves, plenty of soft seating and cushions scattered around, some nibbles on the table.....




should be enough to go round smile

enjoy your evening, tomorrow is a new day gringrin

Cheers anno. What sort of wines did you enjoy when you were holidaying last week? I love shopping for wines in France. Every single bottle seems to be a bargain, in comparison with the UK wine

Pinot gris, primarily. Not that I think wine is such a bargain in France as it used to be. We have a huge variety to choose from here from far-flung parts of the world that are competing successfully with French wine. Many wine makers in New Zealand have qualified as masters of wine in France and some are, in fact, French. Cheers again wine

Don't bother apologising biker he makes enough noise for all the neighbours! grin. It's more likely he was angling to be invited in.

Glad you had a good time. Thanks, ladies, for finishing off the cake and scones, and removing all temptation! grin
