This is what we had last night for drinky poohs:
There use to be a Lancashire drink brewed on the banks of the river Irwell in Manchester. It's called Vimto. Babies were weaned on it and now a days it's made in far off places like Yorkshire, Leicester and Pakistan.
We grew up on it and it is believed to have been the dye for the red rose flag of the house of Lancaster and also the stain or dye of the Red Devils shirts of Old Trafford: Manchester United.
Ok I used a bit of artistic licence in the last two paragraphs. Are you still reading? Good. Every now and again we do venture to Cork or Tralee and enter the frozen food store that sells English delicacies like Pukka pies, Hollands pies, Heinz Beanz and Sausages and VIMTO!
Last night we settled down and watched Alaska The Last Frontier and Fake and Fortune. I Googled the Lancashire church and told her the paintings provenance at 8.30. They don't announce whether it's "Fake or Fortune" until about 8.55! Oh dear. I am in the bad books again.😊
We then treated our selves to a pint pot a piece of Vimto and lemonade. We even had another one whilst we discussed the new level 3 instructions/rules/dictations in Ireland. You can go to the pub and stand outside with fourteen others if you want a pint but you can't go inside! Well we do live on the Irish Riviera and it is OCTOBER!
Don't we know how to have a good time? I am not enjoying my "Dry October".
