Happy New Year !!

Happy New Year !!

It’s hard to believe the end of 2017 is about an hour and half away !!!  Well, it is here in South Africa !!   From hubby and I, and without further a do …

I think I’ve made the feature photo on the front page a little confusing.  The reason behind the addition of a photo there that has just a touch of relevance is that the front page, looks a little dull without a pic!

As it’s New Year and as it’s customary to open a bottle of champers, I decided I would share a photograph of yours truly popping open a bottle of Simonsig MCC (Methode Cap Classique) in 2011, the 40th anniversary of the wine estate’s first bottling of Methode Cap Classique,  (the French method of bottling champagne in France).  Our sparkling wines are not allowed to be called ‘ champagne’ as the name belongs to the Champagne district in France, hence MCC.   As guests on that particular evening we were all given an opportunity to disgorge a bottle, which was then labelled and our name attached for each person to take home.  Hubby did the same.   We have since drunk both bottles naturally 😉
