Nice one, weeps! WELL DONE for going!
It was a totally informal chat with an admissions bod just to see whether they think it's a ridiculous idea and I shouldn't even be thinking about it as a single parent. I've got a better idea of what I'd be letting myself in for and what I need to have a good chance of being accepted and I'm not put off it for next year
Kingstone Press Dry Cider was on 4 660ml bottles for a fiver in my local spa, which is normally silly expensive!
Sipping a few to celebrate pay day before I work out how skint I still am.
Eleven hour day today, tomorrow and then a twelve hour day starting at 5 on Friday rum is essential.
Having just finished my third 12 hour shift in a row, and considering I need to be in at 7am tomorrow, I am inclined to agree.
I rather like this one - about £6 a bottle from Morrisons - masses of fruit - but complex - almost clarety - though less refined.
The manufacturer suggests it could improve with a few years' rest, and I suspect I may give it a go.
La Châsse Winemaker’s Selection Côtes du Rhône.
A shame Morrison's is at a point on my commute where I'm in full sprint-mode...
I've now tried 3 of their wines and this is a second one I will buy again.
Water and coconut water
Nowt now, but in approx 10 mins, homebrewed Chardonnay, and VERY nice it is too
Tesco Finest Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu
When I opened it yesterday it was high tannin, slightly acidic/astringent, but pleasant all the same.
Today it's rounded off, the fruit is more "red" and full.
I'll definitely try this one again - about £7 I think.
Bacardi Oakheart. New one on me this, quite nice. Think I prefer Morgans Spiced but it's a nice drop. Bit of diet coke with it and ice.
Cotes du Rhone, thanks to that gentlegreen.
Just been given some Lamb's spiced, NVP.
Not sure how I'll go on with it as I find them all a bit too much of a vanilla-y muchness. Prefer my rum like my vole primers - naked!
Ice cold Stella to wash down a violently chilli-rich Thai meal. I used Super-Naga Chillies and it's totally volcanic. What I like about trying to stop chilli-burn with lager is that it doesn't work. You get a moment of cold lagery relief and then the chillies come back at you tenfold. I swear I'm a masochist for this shit.
Franks alcoholic ginger beer. Not bad but I think I prefer Crabbie's
Fleurie - technically a Beaujolais - very nice straight out of the bottle. Fruity and well rounded.
Another wine at about £7.
Sainsbury's Basics rum and Rubicon passion fruit juice.
I'm getting into this Bacardi Oakheart stuff. It's nicer straight up with ice I've found. Still prefer Morgan's Spiced overall though.
On me second pint of Stella.
Elderflower cordial. Summery and lovely.
Coffee, for now..
A & W root beer.
krony. figured after two booze free days i've earned one
Tea at the moment but I have my eye on a bottle of wheat beer later
i could kill for a mojito atm
Elderflower cordial, again. I really do love it.
Strongbow. All i can get when i'm boozeless late on Sunday, cold as fuck at least
I seem to have slowly worked my way through half a bottle of gin this afternoon. Most pleasant.
Heineken. Might have a G&T now.
