Dropping a bottle


#21

Mine too, so disappointing! :cry:
I thought that I had got an award. :cry: :cry:
Talking of prizes, has any member here ever won a bottle of Champers in the Christmas Draw??


#22

And my green circley thing is back!!:open_mouth::wink:
Where’s my bottle??:wink:


#23

Matron!!! Please…


#24

Many thanks for this - I am useless at DIY though - I have informed Mrs G - she had a good think and said she would have a go at repairing it…we shall see🤔


#25

Not yet! Maybe this’ll be my year…


#26

If putting a premier cru Chablis in the freezer for a quick chill and completely forgetting about it counts, then…


#27

It means you are logged on to the community.

If it goes red it means you are transferring any wines you hold in Reserves to me. Cheers :+1:


#28

Haven’t done that for a while, but guilty in the past.:cry:


#29

That’s not dropping a bottle, it’s dropping a clanger!

Some great (and painful) stories here!


#30

Always put the cooker timer on when doing this…


#31

You wish!!:open_mouth::wink::grin:

Now Taffy and I have a green dot at 11 o’clock position on our avatar.

Wot’s going on?

(BTW @Taffy-on-Tour, 'bout time you got a picture instead of that ‘T’.)


#33

Hear hear …! It would be great if EVERYONE had some kind of avatar :+1:


#34

Think it means you are on line


#35

Yes , that’s exactly what it means . It’s replaced the fluorescent ring .


#36

Then it’s not working properly.

That we report seeing our avatar without the green ring/dot proves that we are ‘online’ and reading the site and the site doesn’t know it.

My dot popped up today only after I posted.

Luckily not wine, but a couple of years ago I picked up a freshly opened bottle of olive oil…the neck of the bottle was slippy and in the inevitable slow motion, I saw it slip out of my hand, hit the worktop (and take a chunk of granite out) then bounce on the floor…and on the second landing smash…

Any idea how far one litre of oil will spread? … I do :frowning:


#38

We had similar this year - it goes everywhere! The kitchen was like an ice rink for weeks afterwards


#39

When I changed roles at work and moved to a different department, I helped one of the people I used to manage with the application and interview prep to be my replacement. He got the job, and thanked me with a bottle of Rioja. As I was leaving the office that day, it slipped out of my bag and hit the base of my office chair and smashed all over the carpet. I wasn’t too sad for the wine, as it was a fairly run of the mill bottle, but it was very kind of my colleague to buy it for me and it was a shame I didn’t get to have a glass :disappointed:

I’m living in hopes. Last year my order went in the day before the offer was announced so I was careful to wait this year!
