I've been ill, proper lying-under-blankets-shivering ill, for four days. So no wine for me; just soup, tea and sympathy with a pholcodine chaser. Unable to share wine recommendations, I thought I'd share this instead. It is a TED talk by Brene Brown on the power of vulnerability. I watched it a few weeks ago, hot cup of tea in hand and loved it. The last slide is fab, summing up what I wish someone had told me ages ago. Enjoy, and I'll be back on the sauce - all in the line of duty, of course - next week.
