Gin and tonic! I agonised over G. I was going to go for Gardening and then I thought it was too cold for that. I thought of Goals (as in football) and, as you’ll remember if you read last weeks F is for …, there haven’t been too many lately. Then the new boss suggested Glass of wine and I thought hang on, she’s on to something there so I opted for Gin & tonic – my current favourite tipple.
As a teenager, misspending my youth, I tried a variety of alcoholic beverages. People always told me that Gin was mother’s ruin – a depressant, and I came to the conclusion that they were right and avoided it for years. Fast forward 30 years and I find myself once again enjoying the odd G&T – the first one taken whilst luxuriating on deck on the last cruise in November. I actually felt rather decadent as the waiter wheeled his cocktail trolley along the deck. It was only 2pm after all.
When I arrived home I treated myself to a bottle of Gordon’s Gin and a multipack of slimline tonics and have been treating myself to a regular G&T on a Saturday evening! I’m a lightweight these days when it comes to drinking so it’s only ever the one, although, I might break that habit in a couple of weeks when we head off on holiday again!
