It’s Friday night, and I’m drinking VAT69 Scotch.

Not the greatest tasting whiskey in the world, as far as I can tell, but it was $24 (lemme see, that’s about 9 pounds, or 13 euro) so who’s complaining? I’ve put it down to an acclimatisation expense - everybody drinks scotch in Scotland, right? Just like champagne in France or warm beer in England … stereotypes come from somewhere, after all grins

I like whiskey, very much. Actually, I’m planning to invest in one of those micro-distillery jobbies once we land in the land of Scots, mostly because of the alcoholic booty that accompanies it! (In my memory, the deal I looked at gives a case of whiskey a year, for 12 years … but my memory has been known to let me down before (damn you, Internet!) so I can’t back that up.) In any case, if I start drinking more than a bottle of scotch a month …

Have I said I can’t wait? Do I say it every post?

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
