Difficult questions

Forgive the non-wine related nature of this entry, but I thought I'd share two rather difficult questions that Fiona was asked as youngest son went to bed last night.
  1. Mum, does Father Christmas visit children in Africa?
  2. Will Father Christmas go to heaven when he dies?

Not tasting any wine tonight because I have another cold. The last one was mild and went quickly. Let's hope the same is true of this one.

Our good friends Karl and Kate are off to Australia for a month on Tuesday, with their three kids. I am jealous of them. A whole month off. Of course, for a freelance wine writer to take a month off would be professional suicide. But the thought of hanging around Aus for 4 weeks appeals immensely. The blighters have even got tickets for the MCG on boxing day!

It's Australia! Couldn't you combine your freelance wine writing with a trip through the Yarra or the Heathcote or such as well?

As for the MCG, more reason for you to join along. I'm counting down the days until I'm there (my first Ashes test!) - just hope it's still live.

Santa is certainly coming to South Africa,Jamie. In fact,on the 14th Dec he is going to meet the children of Pebbles and I shall post a few photos,on the wine-pages site,which you can show to your son.
