Every evening you call me,
At around half past ten.
I could set my watch by you.
You time it to perfection.
My youngest is in bed,
and I am able to sit down,
and enjoy our time together,
Just me and you.
You are not exactly demanding,
but regardless of circumstance,
you do insist on making contact,
You and I are good friends,
and go way back.
Spending time with you is no chore.
My husband however has no time for you.
In fact, truth be told,
he has never liked you.
However in some things we must agree to differ.
Because I cannot imagine my life without you.
In good times you have always been there,
and by being there,
you have always added greatly to the fun of the occasion.
In bad times,
you very ably held my hand,
and allowed my tears to flow freely.
As I type this,
I am aware that tonight I have neglected you.
It is past our time.
But I hear you call once more.
Be patient, I am on my way.
So now we are together,
I can sit back, relax and enjoy your company.
This evening you are a cheap Pinot Grigio.
I am sorry to have kept you waiting.
What will we raise our glass to tonight?
Oh yes The Irish Blog Awards.

Ah… the simple joys of life.
Yes. I wrote this up last night as my husband commented with few words as I headed to the fridge for my nightly tipple! 🙂
I like this, and am reading it while sipping a Cork Dry Gin!!
Keep it local!
Ditto here, I’m chatting with a local red….. great minds think alike 🙂
It is 10.30. What is that I hear? I’m on my way! 🙂
Perfect! I laughed out loud at that one. Well done my friend.
Glad you enjoyed it!
I have been off work today and spent the time in the company of a full bodied red from Australia
And I know you are partial to a red head! 🙂
haha, yes. This. well done tric, well done. Cheers.
Oh, so very clever 🙂 My companion, who often may also be cheap Pinot Grigio, or similar but regardless, cheap… cheap companions are undemanding and fun… greets me when I get in after work, and joins the G.O. and I for a chat and debrief of the day while we sit on the balcony.
Brilliant love ballad to a perfect glass of wine:)… I’ve yet to do it, but my glass of wine sure does deserve it… I’m toasting you:)
Aww, yes…the perfect companion indeed 🙂
