Well, when Jill challenged me to go for the whole of January without wine, my first thought was "Don't be ridiculous". My second thought was "Don't be ridiculous" but when I realised she actually meant it, I decided I may as well do it for a good cause so I am going to attempt the impossible (or, certainly, improbable) and go for thirty one consecutive days senza vino as well as sans vin.
So, if you've already bought the presents, now's your chance to feel really good by
making a donation to Cancer Relief via my brand new Just Giving page.
Don't forget to GiftAid your donation so Osborne has to stump up his share
And finally, you will able to follow my efforts here on my blog (http://bigredwine.blogspot.co.uk/)
which, hitherto, has extolled the virtues of some big red wines but, for January
2014, will be dedicated to my struggle to "do the right thing".
Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year!
