Dateline Monday 17th April 2023

Happy Monday morning, stone the crows it was a bit blooming chilly and blowing a gale last week, it’s enough with the chilly we need sunny dry and warm which according to the weather boffins we should be getting any day now

So let’s have a little recap Easter √ Passover √ Ramadan will be done this week on Friday 21st April then it will be Eid or to give it its full name "Eid al-Fitr" that translates as "the festival of the breaking of the fast". Eid begins with the first sighting of the new moon.

The Coronation is in a few weeks’ time then it’s a bank holiday or two so much going on.

Talking of going on next Sunday we are all due for an alarm test on our mobile phones, the Government is sending a test alarm to all mobile phones and you will not be able to use your phone until you acknowledge the alarm, let’s hope that the test is the only message they will ever send.

Today is Malbec World Day yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy a great excuse, as if I need one to open a bottle of fine red wine, I do like Malbec (a lot) Malbec is known for its smooth texture and rich black-fruit flavours, and delicious spicy hints, Argentinian Malbec is the best of the best

And that’s it, you are up to date from a David point of view.
