Why do some people leave the microwave on 0:01?

And then just walk away like they haven't committed the biggest atrocity any kitchen has ever seen. They probably also make tea in the order: milk, hot water, sugar and then the tea bag.

It creates the perfect precipice of frustration: keep it bottled in and it'll eat away at you, but if you say something you're the overreacting party-pooper who sucks the fun out of everything.

We realise this might seem a little abstract (for context, somebody did this exact thing at the OneDayOnly headquarters at around 4 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon and it's been bugging us since) but it must be addressed on a grand scale so these perpetrators can understand the extent of their heinous crime.

Anyhoo, here are a truckload of great deals and if that doesn't immediately make you forget about all of your problems in the world, you clearly handle stress differently to us.

About 

In 1691, the Farm Laborie was granted to French Huguenot, Isaac Taillefert. Already the owner of the neighbouring Picardie, Taillefert placed Laborie in his son Jean’s name. Together, they set about clearing the bush and planting vines, and within seven years, were producing a drinkable wine. In fact, it was the opinion of a Frenchman, Leguat, who visited the Cape in 1698, that their wine was “the best in the colony and similar to our small wines of Champagne”.

With their knowledge of French viticultural techniques, the Taillefert family laid a solid foundation of vineyards and outstanding wine production that is evident, over three hundred years later, in Laborie’s wines of distinction.

Tasting Notes

This intense, deep purple coloured wine shows dark cherries, cloves and white pepper on the nose. The fruit concentration on the palate is complemented by plums and hints of vanilla. This well balanced and structured wine displays grippy tannins and therefore the true characteristics of a full-bodied Shiraz.

A regional classic that comes in the most incredible packaging, it's spent enough time in the bottle to drink right away but it can easily hold for another 3 years. Don't miss out.

Food Pairing

Grilled meat or vegetable dishes, richly flavoured meats or wild game are ideal culinary partners to this wine although it is just as fine when savoured by itself.
