140 bottles sitting in the hall...

Got back from my visit to France yesterday with 140 bottles of wine. And the odd bit of liver paté. That should keep me going wine-wise for the next 18 months.

I was very delayed by the events at Buncefield and missed my train by a whisker, but the staff were very helpful and re-arranged my booking. The return journey was also delayed - by an hour - due to an incident. No details, alas.

I visited Cité Europe where I got the plonk, then beetled round to Auchun for the better stuff, though I found myself rather disappointed with the lack of the good names. Never mind - I'll visit the right places next year.

I was bl**dy knackered after carry all those boxes from my car into the house. So I cracked open a can of cider!

In what Hogwarts House am I?

Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?

Only edged Hufflepuff by one point, though.

Better late than never. I now have 2 weeks off work. And boy do I need them. I haven't had a real holiday all year. In between the fsckwits who create and distribute viruses and a distinct lack of cooperation from people within my own company, I'm plain bushed. I was thinking of visiting Istanbul but for reasons I won't detail that's not very sensible right now. So it's a booze run to Calais sometime this week.

We had the works Christmas do last night and we went to an Indian restaurant in Harpenden and it was very good. Well done Gareth! Good company, good food, good drink - for what more can one ask? I've been regretting it today, of course - spicy food doesn't really agree with me - but tonight's steak and chips should settle things down.
