No matter how far you travel….

I’m never quite sure about long-haul holidays, certainly it’s great to encounter new countries and cultures, but then there’s the dreaded jet lag when you get back. To be honest I actually felt quite refreshed when I woke up this morning, the only problem being that my bedside clock was telling me that it was only 4.50am. By 5am I was at my computer sorting through the photos of our trip, and making sure that I look like Brad Pitt in every shot (thanks to Photoshop and Portrait Pro)! In fairness Angela now looks like Angelina Jolie in our holiday pics too, so what the hell…..
I am only back in the office for a week before I’m off again, this time to the UK, on a boat! After a six hour drive to Santander I have a 24 hour crossing to Portsmouth which traverses the notoriously rough Bay of Biscay. I’m not a bad sailor but I still have my fingers crossed that the weather Gods will be kind to me.
Meanwhile back at the Bodega, there is still nothing out of the ordinary going on. The orders are thankfully still arriving which keeps our bottling machine occupied, and out in the vineyards the pruning is actually finished – it is only the tying that remains (another neck and back breaking job that I happily leave to the younger men on our team).
