Cheers, darlings

I arrived home and checked the situation.  Champagne, unchilled, in the larder, Cava in the fridge.  

Cava it is, then.

    Cheers, Julie!

    It was, thanks Gled. I’m afraid I hogged more than half the bottle. Not only did my husband buy and cook my dinner, he didn’t get his fair share of the drink!

    Very true, Dave. But fizz is a quicker pick-me-up, and the governors had had a very intense meeting. Such was the combination of tiredness and adrenaline that the alcohol didn’t have any apparent effect, except to keep me going while I wrote a lot of emails.

    I’m off Cava. The last bottle got a bit vinegary at a second helping and I was out of Cassis to jazz it up. So it’s now my duty to keep champers in the second frig in the garage/laundry room. Just in case.

    School stuff?

    I imagined you were going to:

    Take a course in parachuting/scuba diving, maybe simultaneously

    Take vows of Holy Poverty

    Open a night-club for your blog-pals

    Model for Lands’ End

    Model for Anne Summers

    Go on pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela

    Start up Our Very Own Dave East Fan Club

    Open a kangaroo ranch and carnation gardens

    Pioneer a system of teleportage

    – or all of these.

    Champers should always be kept ready for immediate use – just in case!

    You have to be a school governor to get excited by the sort of things I do, Chris.
