little drummer boy

Like the lady on the lion, his face was a little bit small (only about the size of my thumbnail) so not much you can do with it.


I think he has a bad back

In other news I’m wondering if the Yorkshire Show has reached peak gin. I don’t drink the stuff, but by going round and giving all my free samples (as well as his own) to Gareth yesterday, I managed to get him moderately sloshed. There was some beer and whisky, but it was mainly gin.

  1. Gin does seem to have become terribly trendy of late. Particularly “artisan gin”, whatever that may be…!

    • I’ve read that a lot of the gin distilleries, like the lakeland one, are actaully there to fund the start up of new whisky distilleries – gin and whisky start off as the same basic grain spirit, but gin can be made ready in a few months, whereas whisky takes years, so you make gin to avoid going bankrupt waiting for the whisky – but I think a lot of the gin distillers are just making gin because it’s trendy. Gareth is eagerly awaiting the single malt boom, his sister bought him a share in the lakeland distillery for christmas last year.
