A walk, a party, and a Portuguese wine
Yesterday was a fun day. Crisp and bright and very cold; one of those days where all the colours are in laser-sharp focus and the air has a wonderful purity to it.
I took RTL and the two boys out for a long walk in Windsor Great Park. It was great - everyone was in a good mood, and we met a huge golden retriever-poodle (goldenpoo) cross called Dougal who looked very similar to RTL but with big, furry feet.
Then, in the evening, we partied. It was our good friend Karl's 40th, and it was a real craic. Nice bunch of people, good spirits all round, and a few nice wines including a really smooth, lush Alentejo red - the Herdade de Sao Miguel 2006.
