Well I’m relieved to know that I have got to day number 365 and that it matches with the last day of the year. There were times when I thought I had miscounted and would have to track back over half a year’s worth of posts. I will always see the year in with some champagne and will be sharing this with some friends later in the evening as we see the new year in with food, games and the above.

OK, so I wasn’t really out on the town, but I did venture out to the local throat emporium on a week night which is uncommon now-a-days. I was though meeting up with friends who I hadn’t seen for a while and what was a drink ended up being a meal as well. It was a good time catching up after a number of years, though one friend wasn’t able to make it. We also agreed that we needed to meet up more often so hopefully the other friend will be able to make it next time.
I decided to do a different walk to the one I had planned and decided to extend out a favourite route of mine and try some new paths that went off of it and incorporate some older paths that I hadn’t walked for quite some time. One of the country pubs that I went past had discovered what some might consider the best being of recycling going, using the old pallet to let those passing know what guest beers, ciders and stouts they were serving. Sadly this was very early on my walk, but I may be tempted to pop back another day when its on the way home instead.
I recently finished off the current single malt that I was slowly working through. I don’t have some most nights so they last a good time but obviously eventually a new bottle would be started. I don’t necessarily have an out and out favourite. However this one could easily become one as it was very smooth to drink and had flavours that pleased. I’ll most definitely be making a note of it for my next duty free holiday trip.

I decided to start using some different wine glasses today. There is nothing particularly wrong with the ones I have but I has some stemless ones that I had bought some time ago for other drinks and not really used much. I quite like them as they are a little more robust than the other ones and not so easy to knock over. I’m sure that the purists will feel that the glass can’t be held the right way, or that the shape of the glass with a flat end will have an effect of the taste. At the end of the day though, I’m not a purist and these glasses are probably better to use outside as they won’t break so easily.
