My taste buds have taken a turn for the worse. I have spent much of this weekend in bed ill. Yesterday I was shivering and hardly had the energy to read. Today was far better but I'm still not well. I can tell this because both my gin & tonic, and this bottle of blackberry wine tasted off. The gin was too bitter, and there was something unpleasant about the wine. This didn't stop me drinking it, of course, and the lasagne Claire made was delicious. So maybe it was just the wine.
