It’s my birthday tomorrow. That’s not interesting in itself, but as with every year it does make me think now about how my thinking’s become slightly different over the years, and in particular the last couple. Being both painfully socially awkward and British, I tend to be very apologetic for everything and also tremendously self-conscious about the things I like to do and what people think of them.
My life has just taken a major turn for the better. After two weeks of solidly being glued to my chair in the office and getting all my accounts from the last 18 months up to date I’ve finally caught up with myself! Of course I celebrated by cracking open a bottle of wine and sitting through a really boring 0-0 draw between my team Liverpool and West Ham. Well, at least I had the wine!
Last few months or so there’s been a new topic in the wine-o set about whether you can pair wine and music in the way you do with wine and food. Can a wine enhance your enjoyment of a piece of music and vice versa? I’ll not lie, I started out as a skeptic, but has that changed over time?
Busy time at the minute with 20h33, with a mixture of wine dinners and sales for Christmas. But it’s definitely a good busy, so I’m definitely not complaining! I’m sure everyone’s gearing down into the year end at the minute, and why not eh? This year’s flown by for me, and I’m now giving it the old “can you believe it’s December already?” Starting to sound worryingly middle aged about it all!!
