I'm going to try something a bit risky, but also necessary.

I'm taking a break from blogging and even updating my website, for a week. During that week I'm not going to be using any electronic forms of communication at all.

I've not turned hippy. I've just decided, that after a particularly frantic period, I'm going to have a family week. Having just signed the contract for my third book, and with fairly solid ideas for books four and five, and a wild idea for book six, I could do with the space. When something as much fun as wine is a way of earning a living, it takes some discipline to stop it invading every spot of mental space, and every scrap of time.

I hope regular readers will understand, and that you'll all be back next week for freshly invigorated comment, analysis and vague wonderings.

Wine tonight is Domaine Du Cros' 2002 Marcillac, which is my comfort wine. Delicious, meaty, fresh, sappy and bloody.

Not that you'll read this comment, of course, until after the event, but have a great week! Superb idea :o)

Jamie, I totally understand what it means when work takes up all your space!!! Enjoy your time off with the family.

What a great idea. Perhaps we should all take a week off looking at wine-related websites. I think I've become as addicted to that as I am to wine!

This site has inspired me to create my own wine web log - not a patch on Jamie's, but nonetheless interesting, I hope...

Yes, Alex, taking a break from things is healthy, but please let your break from wineanorak be but a brief one.

And as Subtextinator has pointed out, it is important to consider the legitimate demands of others on one's time.
