I’ve been away forever, haven’t I? We have just arrived home from 10 days in Western Australia, combining a visit with Peppercorn and her parents, with a few days touring the wine area of Margaret River. A little piece of paradise, especially with the spring flowering of the wildflowers.
A public holiday tomorrow, and then the last term of our school year commences – a nine week term. I feel like self medicating at the very thought, but since we have toured the wine area, I am not so confident in my choice of drink.
I mean before, I just ignorantly drank what I liked. However, now that I have tippled my way around numerous wineries, I feel like I should have an educated opinion, but I don’t. Drink anxiety, I am sure it is a real condition.
“Ho! Ho! Ho! To the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe
Rain may fall, and wind may blow
And many miles be still to go
But under a tall tree will I lie
And let the clouds go sailing by”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
