    Default Mini flounce

    Off to my small beaten-up finca in Portugal for a few weeks.
    Hopefully there a modern boiler installed now and we don't have to heat water with a log burner
    Although I quite liked that.
    And to see what Goncalo my neighbour has done with my vines - he farms my vines for me (about half an acre only) and takes the proceeds in exchange for looking after the place. I think they make wine the traditional way with a hand wine press.
    Looking forward to drinking wine from land I own at some point....

    Have fun, enjoy summer hols and Brexit
    Hard Brexit now!

    If you find the hand wine press has broken, not to worry.

    Goncalo will have used his initiative and pressed the grapes with his bare feet.

    At last! Positivity! Describing a skin destroying all inclusive package holiday how it could be, were you not a fantasist loser. Well done.

    Who the fook goes there at this time of year? Even the locals stay inside! Portugal is a May or September destination. Enjoy your kebab and cheap lager filled all inclusive. Have you got your Chelsea kit ironed?

    I thought any kind of flounce was accompanied with a ban for the associated period?

    don't forget to sue for Porto belly because they are prosecuting for lying about that. Maybe we can get you locked up or sectioned?

    Seriously have fun, its going to be nice late 20's early 30's.

    For 'place in Portugal' replace 'Garden shed at bottom of garden'

    Indeed.

    However as long as he f00ks off, who cares?

    One can only hope he will have enough money to live in Portugal for ever. Though I would feel sorry for Bee.....
