Best check on the Sherry….


I come from a generation when family homes certainly didn’t have a Wine/Cocktail Cabinet.  The occasional bottle of beer was stored beneath the kitchen sink and wine was nowhere to be seen.

Then when Christmas came around, a bottle of Sheery (usually Dry) would be found at the back of some cupboard.  It would be dusted down, and a glass offered to special visitors…….  I should add those glasses were, let’s say, “dainty”, resulting in a bottle lasting more than one Christmas.

As for Wine….  well, that was for the People in the BIG House.


Christmas always seems to generate memories of a different outlook, on a very different lifestyle…..  amazing how it has changed.

Busy with Seasonal preparations or like me reflecting on life’s changes….. no matter, as always…

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

    1. Not all todays changes are based upon new tech, looking back to one’s younger days, at home and when first starting out in your new home and life… it can seem like we lived in a different world. But we have moved with the changes.
