MOTH & I are not generally great telly watchers, but we've been enchanted with Michael Wood's incredible History of India series. Last night we sat in front of our first fire of the season, with a yummy curry on our laps & a delicious bottle of Trollinger/Lemberger blend dry Rose from the gorgeous Larry & Marc at Hahndorf Hill. No kids, no phone, no interruptions - what a treat it was! If you haven't caught it thus far, sadly it's the final show next week & you've missed what I think is the best piece of telly I've seen for years.
P.S. MOTH had a MM Tour of his own at the Cheech & Chong concert on Friday night. He reckons just watching the audience was as entertaining as C&C's routine. Apparently they opened the show by asking the audience 'Hey, hands up if you've ever been busted' & there was an almighty cheer & a 99% response rate (MOTH & the kids definitely excluded)! He said there was a guy sitting in front of them complete with dreadies, tatts & an Iron Maiden T-Shirt circa 1974. As they were leaving MOTH accidentally bumped into him & MOTH said for a split second he thought he might be in for it, but as he quickly apologized he got a 'Hey Man, no worries, stay cool' & the gentleman quietly 'floated away' as MOTH so succintly put it!!
