Christmas Tutti Fruti - Second Bottle (A1), 27th December 2012
Due to the previous night's excesses, and my continued dizziness, I had not even a taste from this bottle. I was all for taking it back to Leeds with us, but Claire had other ideas. We were to spend the evening watching the Downton Abbey Christmas special, a programme I have not previously seen. However, Sooz's television had only recorded the first seven minutes. Instead, we watched the first part of Restless, adapted from William Boyd's novel, which I read about four years ago. The period detail was splendid - including the bits in the 1970s - and very nearly distracted attention from the rest of it, which was brilliantly done. I will certainly be watching the second episode. Possibly even with a glass of wine.
