While not wishing to get too carried away, (hang on, who are we kidding?) why not just grab the case, and the fabulous Chardonnay and beautiful glasses and head directly to the beach.
Or the river.
Or the Italian iron table and chairs. At home. Under that very expensive, landscape-architect designed loggia you weren’t quite sure about. But which is now groaning with grapes, or wisteria, or lichen.
This gift is quality and pure spontaneity, along with a soupcon of whatever is French for “Je Ne Sais Quoi”.
Yes, the person receiving this elegant gift could well store it away in the oak sideboard for someone’s wedding, or 21st, or 80th birthday.
But we say: Live for the moment, you’re worked hard, you’ve earned it – so savour it.
