So what do you do on a cool wet day in Languedoc? You go shopping, well, wine tasting to be precise.
No1 son, having heard we were in France, emailed to say that he'd like some wine and could we pop over to Ermitage de Pic St Loup and get him a couple of cases? Now, I'd have been pleased if he'd asked how we were and simple stuff like that, but being the dutiful father, and fancying a quick tasting on a miserable day, off we went.
Look, I know you are supposed to taste and then spit it out, but not me bruv, not at those prices, so everyone went home happy.
Poorer, but happy.
