One of the questions that I ask myself about blogging is whether or not to include personal information here, or just to stick to wine.
I think a bit of personal material is good. It helps you understand more about where I’m coming from. It;s important to understand a bit about the author if you are to be able to interpret the writing properly. Context is important in wine, and I reckon it’s important for bloggers to be open and ‘knowable’ in their writing.
Besides, if you just come here for the wine, you can filter out all the personal stuff. Just indulge me, and ignore it.
With this in mind, a little about the weekend. It’s the last weekend before older son returns to boarding school. Things have been mixed over the last two weeks. That we have survived it, more-or-less intact, is a positive sign. But it’s still pretty tricky, with conflict rippling below the surface. Having said that, we went down to the golf range together yesterday and hit some balls (he’s pictured above: I’m trying to encourage the boys to take to golf, because it would be great to play with them – automatic pass out), and the weather has been fantastic, which always makes things seem much brighter.
And there was the football. It went badly for City, who lost in the last few seconds to Utd. And then Chelsea managed to lose to Spurs, which is bad news for City in their pursuit of fourth place. It is going to be an exciting end to the season.
