#SE5

She’s eyeing up the laptop and wanting a piece of the action. Wherever I work in the house...she’s never far away. She’s gorg, but the need to be sprawled across me constantly can be a bit much when she deletes something I’ve spent ages crafting. Like she did last night. 😩. I need an office with a lockable door (she can open unlocked ones!)

And now for something completely different... Ever seen these wacky-looking labels on the shelf and wondered what was in the bottles? Aussie “Garagiste” winemaker Gary Mills is a true “philosophist” winemaker in a world of ever-increasing big-money brands coming out of Australia.
Naming his wines after Jamsheed, a King in Persian folklore who is said to have discovered wine after storing his grapes in jars which then naturally fermented, Gary seeks out the best grapes from growers in the Yarra Valley, and beyond, and treats them with the utmost sensitivity to create elegant, complex wines which really express the “terroir” they come from and his holistic winemaking process. Using whole bunches of grapes in the ferment, he doesn’t add yeast, acid or enzymes and leaves them unfined and unfiltered. Only very small amounts of sulphur are used to stop the grapes and resultant wine from going off.

Ma Petite Francine is a single vineyard Cabernet Franc, with grapes sourced from a biodynamic/organic vineyard in the Yarra Valley. This grape variety runs the gamut of red and black berries, from strawberry, raspberry and red cherry right through to blackberry and plum. It’s also known for it herbaceousness, and a whiff of tomato leaf can be found in this wine. Four months in oak before bottle smooths out the tannins and gives an earthy, spicy finish.
The Illaj Syrah contains grapes sourced from across three sites in the Yarra valley and Gary’s lightness of touch makes this a very quaffable wine. You’ll find rich blackberry, violets and black cherries in your glass, with a hit of black pepper on the finish.

We’re open from 11am to 5pm today, so pop down and get some to go with your Sunday roast!

Me.
After a ginormous Sunday morning lie-in.
And knowing that my day consists of paper reading and lounging. With a pint of shandy thrown in (you can take the girl out of Wales......)
Rest assured - normal service will resume tomorrow.

Hey! We’ve got NEW cheese in the house!
Driftwood is a fresh, log-shaped goat cheese with a lemon flavour and a silky-smooth texture. It slices into neat discs of deliciousness – absolutely scrumptious grilled on toast or in a salad and a winner on your cheese board too!

What to drink on the side?

Try our Austrian, Sepp Moser Grüner Vetliner - with a touch more weight than is usual in a Grüner, this wine has delicate aromas and flavours of citrus and apricot, with a touch of spice and a hint of honey to round it all out. Great with Asian dishes too.

Prefer beer? Light goat cheeses need a sparing hand when it comes to hops and malt, so reach for a lovely, refreshing Pilsner, like this Peckham Pils from Brick Brewery. A Czech style lager, the predominant hop is the classic noble Saaz which adds pleasant earthy, floral, citrus, spicy and herbal overtones to the beer.

We’re open until 6pm today, so see you later

Today, I’m on the verge of a Mini Break. A rest. A treat to beat all treats 👏🏻
For Christmas, The Husband excelled himself. He bought me a whole night away from day to day life - from The Mini, from the never ending chores, from cleaning up cat sick (don’t ask 🙄), from homework duty, from making beds, from picking wet towels up off the floor, from cooking, from being called to locate the cheese when he can’t find it, despite it being right in front of his nose......You know the drill.
A break from Mum Life generally.
We are going to a hotel in the city we live in. It will only take us 30 minutes to get there. But it’s a world away from my day to day.
There will be people. Buzzing around in bars and restaurants. There will be loud music and if we (by that I mean ‘me’) are lucky - dancing. There will be laughter and chat. There will be breakfast in bed. Book reading. Goddamit there will be spontaneity! We might bump into a friend or two and say ‘yes let’s have a drink.’ And of course there will be cocktails!!! Mine’s a French Martini. He’ll take a Bloody Mary.
In short - we will be transported back to Life Before Kids. We will feel youthful and free and decadent. We will, for 48 hours, be young, carefree and living that life less ordinary.
And I will recognise myself again. I will fleetingly re-claim my identity as Nicky, not ‘mummy’. And it will be glorious.
Because as much as we adore our kids and being their mums, that role does not define us. It is what we do, not who we are.......and Amen to that. 😉

Love those Pressure Drop labels as much as we do? Here’s what’s behind them:

Inspired by the likes of The Kernel and Magic Rock, Graham, Sam and Ben started brewing beer in Graham’s garden shed in the summer of 2012. Having moved premises twice since just to keep up with demand, in 2017 they built a custom facility in Tottenham, joining Beavertown and Redemption who operate close by. We stock four of their prolific range:

Bosko – Inspired by classic American beers like Sierra Nevada, the boys wanted to make their own version so they could drink it as fresh as possible. Loaded with aromatic American hops, it’s brewed with crystal malt. Fruity, with grapefruit and orange citrus, piney hops and a lick caramel to round it off.
Wallbanger - Their Belgian-style Wit is brewed with the classic aromatic additions to make it a refreshing yet flavoursome beer. The orange zest, crushed coriander seed and gentle spicing used in the brew go brilliantly with fish tacos.

Pale Fire stole its name from a novel in the form of a poem, whose title was lifted from a Shakespeare play…and the label is an homage to the great Californian poolscapes painted by David Hockney. Tropical citrus and mango the nose with hints of grass & grapefruit.

Wu Gang - Their idea was to combine the flavours of wheat beer: clove, bread and banana, with some foraged herbs to create a beer that would go perfectly with roast chicken – and it does! And with all those eastern spices it’s the perfect beer to wash down your curry too.

Come down and grab a bunch on the way back from picking up your Friday night takeaway! We’re open until 8pm, so see you later!
