A Good Champagne


More harrumphing by the Prof who is cooking dinner

Sorrel and I are just a little red faced after 
two very large glasses of good champagne 
at Mrs Trellis'
and are sat uselessly in the front room

Sorrel likes a good champagne

  5. Were you toasting the new baby or what? Not that you need an excuse to drink champagne.

  7. I remember my first campaign, at Meg's wedding. I was twenty something and wore my yellow dress. Driving home, my husband and I each agreed to be responsible for watching a lane of traffic. Back in our living room the baby sitter said "You're both drunk!" and kept the kids the rest of the day while we slept it off.

  8. "Three be the things I shall never attain:
    Envy, content and sufficient champagne."
    from Inventory by Dorothy Parker. My very wise Aunt Anne taught me that when I was 16 years old. Aren't you lucky to get on so well with your MiL? xx

  9. Dorothy Parker was very clever about champagne. Another of her quotes is:
    'Champagne to my real friends,
    Real pain to my sham friends.'
    Love that you and Sorrel get on so well.

  10. Wine makes me sick. Even champagne. Luckily for me, beer and vodka and rum (not all consumed at the same time!) treat me fine.
    I want a picture of the meal!
    I am very demanding, aren't I?

  12. I like the pic. It reminds me of Table and Four Chairs by Robert Therrien. http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/therrien-no-title-table-and-four-chairs-ar00166

  14. I like the picture showing little people or huge furniture – your camera must have taken some Champagne too. I guess you mean the real Champagne? From the area of Champagne in France designated by the law of July 22, 1927? My cousin near Paris goes every year to Epernay to buy a couple of cases. I like to visit my cousins … But here in the US they call champagne any wine that is bubbly so you are not sure until your take a sip what it is your are drinking.

  15. Oh my, champagne. My favourite tipple (when I can get it!) There's nothing like a champagne buzz. That's a very strange photograph.

  18. Me and champagne share a mutual dislike for one another. Luckily it's the only social lubricant to suffer this affliction.
