    I was impressed with the Frixxy SSM. Its the first Prosecco in a long while which hasnt made me sneeze. And it tasted good too. Very smoothThe empties look very sad in the recycling bin today. They are far too pretty

    On the subject of booze.....the Adnams beer has gone down far too well. I am being asked to put another order in

    Id just remembered something my uncle told me a couple of years ago about using egg whites to filter wine. A quick google also reveals dried fish bladders are also used.

    Not great today to be honest. A couple of things people have said have really upset me which isn't like me at all and earlier on I crouched down in front of the fridge I'd done it before I even realised and ended up in a right pickle. Dh had to help me up but I've really hurt myself so I've come to bed.
    Dh is gojng back to work tomorrow, for his sanity haha, and I'm not looking forward to being on my own. People have offered to come but its not the same I just cannot do a thing, my neighbour came to see me this morning and she said I don't know what ever possessed you to have it done, I know she wasn't being nasty when she said it but its really upset me. Had I known I was going going to be like this and it not have worked either I wouldn't have had it done obviously.....rant over I'll shut up now, thanks for asking x
