The Good Life


Hubby has gout.

He is hobbling about like a truly old man. Poor dear. Trips to the gym are also severely curtailed.

But it’s more than the physical restriction. There’s also the dietary. Beans, nuts and red meats are out. Some say mushrooms too. He has also been told to go easy on alcohol, especially beer and red wine. Not that he has these daily. Not even weekly. But he does occasionally savour some of it for the pleasure of social drinking.

Now that he has to watch his intake, he bemoans the fact that he has just found a great rocky patel vintage 1992 but he can no longer enjoy it….. Such is life….!
