It was David Paul’s turn for the dreaded MMR today.

As it happened, he was not at all bothered.  We had some fun in the waiting room as a grannie took to DP immediately and they started having a lark.

Ruth adopted this habit, and now we have our family meals in this way as a matter of course, and we think it’s a “good thing” (see UK Dining Etiquette Survey).

However, lately we have grown tired of the same old wines, so we began exploring when we saw a sale at Tesco at the beginning of “summer”.  One of the ones we came across that we liked a lot was the Montepulciano D’Abruzzo.
