Dry January - what is it for February?
I must confess that I failed the dry January test. I had tried to go the whole month drinking nothing but Dry Martini. However over the weekend I succumbed to the temptation of a couple of pints of Doombar. But what is it that one drinks in February is the question that it troubling me. Black September is for Guinness and Red October is obviously for red wine. But what is one meant to drink in the other months of the year. It seems to me that this "Dry January" thing has been very badly thought out.
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for nearly 47 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was four in April 2017 and he now has a sister, Georgia, born on 29 December 2017.
I am ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my fifth year of ministry.
