I have reason to celebrate today....because I passed my driving test today - and at the first attempt. I am so over the moon. And as I got my big box of wine yesterday from Germany (will tell you more about the wine later), I think there is double reason to open a bottle. Since the day is so lovely, it screams for a rose. So I will open the bottle of Syrah of Le Jamelles from France and at 4.95 a real bargain (wasn't the only one who found that as it is sold out now). Check out www.hawesko.de . They ship to Ireland but even with the postage it come cheaper than bying some wine here. The bottles were packed securely and survived the trip. So I have chilled the Syrah and will celebrate my new driver's license.
And I bet that the wine will even help me over the pain of a swollen ankle (fell yesterday and heavenly bandaged now - but due to the fact that I am driving an automatic....the test went still ahead). So now I am sitting in the garden (mum got me a big tub of Ben & Jerry's as a passing gift and I am almost in heaven......George Clooney would make this day perfect ;-)
Will tell you all about the wine in the next few days.
