Bloggers Block

I've been trying to write a post for about a week now, there's an unfinished dozen, all starting off with some half arsed whimsy that trails off into no-where. Something's not there, it's missing, and my thoughts just won't gel.

So, here's a wine. A very nice wine. Recommended by Ross at the Woodlands Road Oddbins. Full of spring flowers and smelling of almonds.

It's organic, has a gentle spritz and... I've discovered that it's much better after opening, drinking a glass, then finishing it off three days later. Such parsimony hardly ever happens Chez Splodge. Strewth, I really am out of sorts. Maybe this will help...

Ticket price back with any purchase over £75. 20% discount on 12 bottles. Feel the deal. Okay, it's a mildly complicated deal. Here's a summary: If you're planning to buy some wine why not get pleasantly pished for free and save lots of pounds? You know it makes sense.

Without any wheeling and dealing, this Falerio will cost you £7.49. It's well worth it.


  1. Well, you can't force writing. Let it leaven. This wine is a curio. I was disappointed on opening it but didn't, unlike writers block, give it time to eventually express itself! What is the article you're working on BTW?

  2. Ah yes, I've had two bottles now and both were utterly transformed by the fridge door shelf. It should say on the back of the bottle... "To fully enjoy this wine, open at least two days in advance, pour off a large glass, reseal and pop in the fridge door".
    As for the article, well, that's partly the problem. It started off about BBQs, drifted into memories of childhood summers then began meandering along the Asturian coastline. At which point, fortunately, my 'pretentiousness alarm app' kicked in.
    Will take your advice and let 'em rise!

  3. Hey no need to worry about the article, and no need any advices. Just go through the Google and spent some time about how to prepare the exact article, then apply here.
