Her post reminded me of Millie’s Can’t open it posts.
Well, I never told you about our Christmas dinner, did I?
Ever since her Dad died, Julie and I like to spend a few days at Christmas in Normandy. This year, we even had a white Christmas. And we both decide on a suitable Christmas Eve dinner and buy a nice bottle of wine, light candles and shower each other with nice presents.
This year, everything went according to plan until it was time to open our bottle of wine. Our corkscrew, a very simple affair that you can see above, taken back in September, refused to do its job. It just kept on turning and screwing and turning and screwing.
We tried to pull the cork out of the bottle, but neither of us was strong enough! It turned out that the corkscrew was broken.
So, on Christmas Eve, I had to drive out of Bénerville, into Deauville, to my uncle’s house, where my cousin Léo pulled the cork out for us!
As I told Lucy, men do come in handy sometimes 😉
In case you’re wondering why I happen to have a photo of that corkscrew, this is more evidence of my monomania (or is it multi-monomania)! Ever since I’ve joined flickr and bought a digital camera, I take pictures of everything. This one was taken because I was looking for photos of coiled and twisted things for a group on flickr.
On a daily basis, I upload quite a lot of photos onto my flickr account, but I choose one a day, which I blog at Claude’s Daily Snap
