Crew are, of course permitted to buy these things, and I am sure that is the case here or she would have been much more careful no doubt. Hiding implies that it was illicit which I doubt was the case.

As for stealing the cutlery, well let's leave it at that.

Good to have CIHY with us today - so whilst you are clearly not busy, run (or shuffle) and fix me a Bombay and Slim and don't stint the ice. Cut a fresh lemon, yesterdays will not do thank you!

Darling, terroir isn’t going to do anything for a £5 bottle of wine.

I'm not that fussed if it costs £10 or £100 per bottle. I've tasted several expensive wines that would be of better use cleaning drains, and many cheaper wines that are perfectly drinkable.

There does seem to be an odd fascination that price = quality, when in the real world, it really doesn't
With wine (putting aside false modesty and reverse snobbery) it really does, up to a point. From then on it gives you exclusivity, uniqueness etc. Where that point lies will differ from person to person and which particular wine (Chablis, red burgundy ...) you’re looking at.

A lot of us have an “expensive wine tasted like farmyard swill” story, mine is about a ‘47 Petrus (I wasn’t paying). Personally, I have far more “that £30 wine from Waitrose was a lot better than the £5 bottle” stories.

I’ll stop now or I run the risk of waxing lyrical 😉
