At Last! March Arrives.

Every now and then it behooves a lady to ask herself these questions,

  • Am I drinking too much?
  • Would I like to feel a bit sharper at the weekend?
  • Is wine terribly fattening?

If the answers to these questions are, as follows - possibly, definitely and hell, yes! then it is time for the lady in question to jump on the wagon for a few weeks. And then if she goes to visit her old mother on a particular Wednesday and notices a great, greasy smudge on her old mum's forehead, then is the perfect time to announce, "Guess what Mums? I'm off drink for Lent."

And all was going well until Friday when my thoughts turned to chilled white wine. It was so hard driving past that off-licence for I had such a 'nyang' for a delicious chardonnay or pinot grigio. But drive past it I did and now it's official - I'm off drink for Lent. Sure it'll do me no harm.

Best of luck! I, who at one time never met a drink I didn't like, pretty much don't drink at all anymore. Though I have to say, about two or three times a year I do suddenly feel the need to have a glass of wine with dinner.

How long have you been sensible around alcohol then?

Grannymar said...

Well done you!

I hope Bert is joining you for the duration. ;)

Nelly said...

He had a beer with his Sunday lunch I'm afraid.

Whoo hoo for Bonnies calendar girl pose - you still have 28 days to enjoy the March pin-up!

Rankin himself couldn't have got a better picture of her.

Alas, I have been treading down the weary road of sobriety for 9 years. I'd still like a drink more often than not, but my stomach makes serious objections.

Once I give up smoking, I'll have no joys at all in my life.

After a while there is joy in not smoking. Honest!
