This blog is a record of the wine that I make and drink. Each flavour made and each bottle drunk will appear here. You may come to the conclusion that, on the whole, I should be drinking less.

Prune & Parsnip Wine 2019 - Eighth Bottle (B1), 9th-10th December 2020

This will be another of those diary entries where I complain that every day feels like the last. There is little that stands out from Wednesday or Thursday and they certainly will not be days that I remember for evermore. Or even by the start of next week. We did have a bottle of Prune & Parsnip Wine, so that was something, and saw a further two Advent Windows from the neighbours. It was another two days of feeling barely in control at work and I do look forward to a fortnight's time when the country shuts up shop for a week.

  1. The window looks amazing! what a great idea. Well done you two!
    Prune and parsnip sounds good, think I will put that down to make in January.

    1. Hello Angela

      Definitely do Prune & Parsnip. This year I only did a single batch and am already regretting it. Definitely a double batch for 2021.

      Thanks about the window - we had a lot of fun doing it. Mostly Claire's work, but I did the Tardis panel, and the clown fish and the jellyfish's body on the Aquarium panel. Took hours! But the street looks great, and gets better with each day.

  2. Hi Ben,
    Yes definitely on the prune and Parsnip..
    My goodness it took a long time to do the window, what an achievement, looks great. Maybe it will become and annual thing.....
    Have a great Christmas.
