Broken bone blues
Regular visitors will know that the wine anorak is updated several times each week. Well, in a rather bizzare playground accident while playing with my two young boys on Sunday, I fractured my right elbow. It's one of the most painful things I've ever done. Consequently, updates are going to be scarce for the next week or two: one fingered typing is mindnumbingly slow. Pain relief on Sunday evening came in the form of the second half of a deliciously intense, rsapberry and dummer pudding flavoured Morgon from Jean Descombes, and last night I sought solace in an equally flavour-packed rustic 1998 Crozes Hermitage from Delas. I'll have a better idea of how long it will take things to return to normal after the next trip to hospital, on Friday.
