Only another two days to go now. By Tuesday the country will – we trust – be back to normal, after a jumboid winter break made possible by the happy circumstance of both days falling on a Saturday, pushing the public holidays into the following week.

If you happened to have the odd £50k going spare, you could have snapped up the 60-bottle collection of every vintage from 1945 to 2003 (1948 apart) of Château Mouton Rothschild at Sotheby's recent 40th anniversary auction. The significance of the collection lies in the artists' labels, commissioned for each new vintage by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, and painted by, among others, Miró (1969), Chagall (1970), Picasso (1973), Andy Warhol (1975) and Francis Bacon (1990). The tradition was maintained by his daughter Baroness Philippine after his death, but this particular haul stopped one year short of the 2004 label painted by one Prince Charles.

There has been a little bit of embarrassment for Boots, courtesy of Poundland. The discount retailer has been quietly selling the pharmacy chain's products at cheaper prices with new labels just stuck over the original branding. It turns out to be excess stock that the international arm of Boots sold to Poundland, but it might have waited until Boots' UK shops had run out of the identical products.
