A PLAN to just have one glass from a lunchtime bottle of wine was flawed in conception and wholly unachievable in reality, a couple has confirmed.
Martin Bishop and Emma Bradford opened the bottle of rosé with a wildly ambitious programme of just having a single glass each.
Bradford said: “It’s school holidays, I’ve got two weeks off, Martin’s only part-time at the moment, so I suggested we just indulge ourselves with a lunchtime glass.
“It really went down well. Better than I expected. And when I got up to put it back in the fridge, not intending to for one moment, Martin thankfully said ‘Just one more?’
“Obviously, which the plan didn’t take into account, there’s no sense putting a bottle back in when there’s only a third remaining, so we tidied it up by finishing it. And I put another in to cool for later. Tactically, that was disastrous.
“At 4pm, when I had to send Martin to the off-licence and the chippie because no way was I cooking, I kept muttering ‘But this wasn’t in the plan!’ to calm my thumping head.”
Bishop said: “I think maybe the plan was nothing more than ‘Shall we have a glass of wine?’ being far more acceptable then ‘Shall we drink that bottle of wine?’ all along.”
