Traditionally the months of January and February are pretty quiet in our Bodega, and it’s therefore usually quite a good time to sqeeze in a little R&R; (I don’t mean rock & roll, but rest and relaxation!)

As soon as we return, I have to attend to a bit of urgent family business in the UK, that will probably mean that the whole month of February will be lost to me. I am resisting the temptation to travel with a laptop, but will still have my trusty Blackberry at my side (there’s no such thing as a real escape these days).
