Arranged to visit Auntie Chez today. She wasn't home, so as I was a bit hungover I went to the # RSL Club. Had a plate of cold soggy chip bits that made me wonder what I had done to so grievously offend the staff. Also a bottle of rosé that was quite confronting. On closer examination, the gold medallion on the label read "Kills 99% of all household germs."

You can stop anybody in Sawtell and ask "Have you seen Cheryl today?" and they'll know who you're enquiring after. She's that kind of person. Nobody in the club had, but eventually she turned up, and we had a lovely chat.

Now my head is spinning, because I'm not accustomed to socialising or full-strength wine. Think I'll do some washing up to buffer the comedown.
