Most people get to the start of a New Year and think about all these resolutions they could have a go at. Heading down to the gym, eating better, stop smoking, and all the usual stuff like that. Well I was having a think myself and realized that rather than stuff that I’d like to change, there are certain things that I genuinely need to achieve, otherwise this little jaunt of mine (following my dream and joining the wine industry) might need a rethink.
For this New Year’s I decided that rather than stand with thousands of randoms on Primrose Hill (looking at the fireworks over Thames and dodging firecrackers from the knobheads in the crowd) I’d try and do some voluntary work. I know that homeless shelters get inundated this time of year and I wanted to help out where I could. Sounds easy right?
So I’ve had a week off writing the blog as I ate far too much and drank…nah actually…I drank exactly the right amount! But as everyone seems to be throwing out pieces on which Champagnes to waste your money on, I thought I’d chip in with a couple of tips on what to have at all your parties.
So I was having a think about new year’s resolutions the other day. I don’t usually bother. Most of the things you decide to do are usually all forgotten about by February anyway, but this year I really fancied finding something I had a chance of keeping it all going.
So there I was on Twitter and read up a tweet by Anthony from “Confessions of a Wine Geek”. It was a “what’s anybody doing special wine-wise in the new year?” kind of thing. I thought it’d be cool to have a flick through the lesser known wines, so I replied and said “I’m going to have a brand new wine every week for the rest of the year!”
