The way back to wine

I had Franklin 6 weeks ago and Christ! What a steep learning curve that was!

I'm loving it now but if you'd asked me in the first 3 weeks I think I honestly thought I'd made a huge mistake. He's beautiful, of course (every mummy thinks so, doesn't she), strong, smiling.

......Breathes like an elephant with a bad cold in the night ...... Why does no-one mention that babies are so loud?

So much to learn and know.

And now that I'm not terrified every minute of doing something wrong I think the way is paved back to wine.

One cannot taste wine when tense. And I've been tense.

Wine by its very nature needs a relaxed recipient in order to unfurl and show its colours.

So, soon.
