This is my first ever reblog, but I just had to. You’ll see.

The Wine Wankers

A few years ago now (and maybe a few more) when I proposed to my wife I decided that I should source a really good French Champagne and make sure that my wife was thoroughly enjoying it before proposing.  My wife loves bubbles, she can’t get enough of it.  So bubbles and their warming effect was always going to play on my side!

It was actually my wife’s birthday which gave me the perfect cover to wake her up before sunrise on a crisp morning and drive her to the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean south of Bondi Beach in Sydney.
