Coffee & Current Reads

29th July 2017

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you it’s like October here today, but the sun’s trying to come out. Neil and Isla have gone to the shops, and I’m here on coffee and ready to share. Settle in. We went to a pop-up market in town this week and spent too much on mojito fudge that didn’t actually have mojito in it, I was disappointed. This is an actual mojito fudge recipe. I probably won’t try it myself, but…

My Top 17 Travel Memories

27th July 2017

In my last post I mentioned that *I was this close* to 200 groovy likers on Gin & Lemonade’s Facebook page.  With a little help from my friends, I’m now at 215.  Thank you! (I’m now at 943, help me get to 1K?) Moving on.  In a minute. When I was sitting at 199, I said that groovy person 200 would get to choose the topic for my next blog post.

How To Shop When You Hate Shopping

24th July 2017

And today I want to talk about clothes. After we booked THE TRIP, I got excited for a bunch of reasons.  One was the chance to shop in stores that carried clothes in my size that I would actually wear. But then I realised…

Coffee & Gin

22nd July 2017

If we were having coffee I’d say, are you ready for this? I’ve been up for hours and I don’t know what time it is, and I haven’t had my coffee yet.  Isla already cracked some eggs, put her wellies on, and now wants to fly a kite.  That’s fine.  I love my experimental, outdoorsy, artistic child.  But lemme say something here.  Coffee before kites. I have a coffee now.  Hi.  I feel better now.  How are you? If we…
