Keep Calm, Drink More Wine – 30 DBC

30 Day Blogging Challenge

Day 21

What is your guilty pleasure?

Another day, another double post.  My little boy decided to be really good at sharing – for once – and decided to give me a stomach bug…grim times, my friends, grim times!  As a result, I missed my post yesterday.

I initially thought that my guilty pleasure was red wine.  I then realised that was also my answer for the next question, so I thought I should think of something else!

So, I asked my husband what he thought my guilty pleasure is and he said: “Take That”.  That was no use.  I don’t feel guilty about it.  Not in the slightest!

Oh, and for those that are wondering if he is still complaining about the naked bum photo in my previous post, yes he is!

Then I realised it was Easter and I would be over-indulging in chocolate.  This will definitely be my guilty pleasure this weekend, as it is many weekends.  I need to get my strength back after being poorly, so it is all for medicinal purposes, of course.


While on the topic of Easter.  Today I had a conversation with my lovely friend over at Life is Knutts – if you have not checked her blog out then please do, she is funny and an incredible person – regarding her recent post on the Easter bunny.  Warning, it may give you nightmares!

Anyway, it made me think about my views on the Easter Bunny.  We have never talked about the Easter Bunny to the monkeys.  I have nothing against the small cuddly ones, but those human sized bunnies freak me out.  I mean, have you seen some of them?!


Don’t tell me this doesn’t give you the creeps!


That is why we never invite the Easter Bunny into our house.  Mummy and daddy organise our easter egg hunt.

What do you do in your family?  Do you invite the Easter Bunny to visit every year?  What are your Easter traditions?

Day 22

What’s your favourite drink and why?  

Share the recipe.

My favourite drink is red wine.  My recipe for this is as follows:


  1. 1 x bottle of red wine – or more if you plan on going crazy.
  2. 2 x glasses – sharing is caring!
  3. 1 x corkscrew


  1. Open wine and bring to room temperature.  If you are feeling like pushing the boat out, pour into a decanter.
  2. Pour wine into glasses.  Be careful not to spill any.
  3. Drink
  4. Repeat as required



Remember!  Don’t spill the wine!

      Love to hear from like-minded people when it comes to the Easter bunny, I usually get funny looks when I say he freaks me out!

    Your wine recipe cracked me up!! I never thought about the Easter bunny before, my parents never did it but my lg has come back from school obsessed with the bloody thing, one of the TAs dressed up to hand out eggs as far as I can gather & now she won’t stop going on about it so I snuck out & hid their eggs in the garden & told her the bunny takes the eggs all the family give & hides them for us. (So they still say thank you!!) Thanks for linking up! #bigpinklink
