… a little bit of this, that and a lot more

It’s a tad late. Who cares if it’s a tad late?! I have nothing witty or intelligent to contribute today, so why not speak about my first and only love?


Grapes – An Ode


As green as grass

Or red as sin

Even purple will pass


Lusciously succulent

Fresh is divine

Raisin’s, currants and sultana’s too


But fermented

Speaks to my soul

(And my knees)

(Probably the legs too)

My love, my mate, you won’t let me down




Cabernet Sauvignon


As long as it’s dry, so I can drink it (snigger)


Oh my dearest closest, and most loving friend


I could never live without you! I shan’t even try!


YOH, I know that’s excruciatingly bad, you’re probably speechless right now, but it’s better than me giving you an arb rendition of my boring weekend, right?


Have a good one!

    There is no point in a grape that can’t be poured out of a wine-shaped bottle, really.
