Let The Cocktails... Be-Gin

This quarterly delivery of gin-related goodies arrived on Monday but because deliveries are staggered we were requested not to reveal the contents until Wednesday, so this was blipped today. I have quite a few unopened bottles by now so in order to protect my liver I have paused deliveries until this time next year.
I don't know if I'm on some rogue builder's register as gullible, but I was targeted horribly again yesterday by people of dubious worth, quoting figures inflated by a factor of up to ten on the final quote that I then got from a reputable company to do the work I wanted. Conservatory plasterboards were damaged and a hefty deposit was requested, made payable to someone's name. I declined, paid nothing, signed nothing and got Trading Standards involved, but I still feel a mug for even talking to them, and was completely wiped out and frazzled by the end of the day and have been a bag of nerves today lest they returned.
This of course is what gin is intended for...
