Oh, and some chicken because that’s healthy. That needs some wine with it. And some nachos before it. And some pavlova afterwards. The wagon is a small dot on the horizon

- August – Du pain, du vin, du massive French custard/fruit tarts. Oh, and the cheese! With more pain. Thighs reach annual peak.
- September – November – Ah, there’s the wagon! Focus, healthy food, lots of exercise.
- December – How long have you got?
