Photo article: Decanting those last Christmas Presents from the Greek Hovel

The photos below are self explanatory. One five kg tin has been changed into ten presents. Eight were posted yesterday, after 2 hours was spent at the Post Office wrapping them in the prescribed manner. I know that it worked as the first has just landed in London. Two more remain for hand delivery or post Christmas sendings.

And we still have ten litres left for ourselves. When you buy olive oil at Tesco is it this green? Nope. This is a first press of the olives from the Greek Hovel. The peppery back of the throat aftertaste is very powerful. There is no need to add pepper to this as you prepare to dunk in your bread. This is the real deal squeezed from some of the 2.681 tonnes of olives I helped harvest from the hovel a few weeks ago.

In decanting I spilled a bit on the worksurface. That was a bonus as i could mop it up with bread and treat myself whikle also clearing up so impressing the Mrs. I am such a domestic God.

The loathsome FT equates shagging someone else's wife with caring for your 4 year old

Government adviser Dominic Cummings did not break the law or indeed break self isolation rules when his wife came down with Coronavirus but he undertook travel, arguably non essential, to make caring for his 4 year old easier. But for Jim Pickard at the FT bending the rules to care for your kid is the same as bending the rules to shag someone else’;s the case.wife. The acts maybe the same but surely the intent in one case is rather more laudable than in the other. But maybe among godless metropolitan elites who can never forgive Cummings for his rile in Brexut that is not how they see it.Most of us might have a different value set, another reason, maybe, why FT readership continues to slump.
