A to Z Reading Survey

OK, so.  My self-imposed post-a-day challenge is in the shitter, because I hate small talk.  My head is so full-of-thoughts, there’s no time in the day to do them justice. How many ways can you say I feel like I’m losing a bit of myself every day without sounding like a depressing cow? My solace is reading.  And Isla, but she’s three and I might be clingy. So, books. I found this A to Z reading survey from The Perpetual Page Turner, and I thought I’d share my own A to Z here. Author you’ve read the most books...

Have You Ever Double Booked?

So, a family trip to the library yesterday resulted in some unintentional parenting humor today. (I couldn’t remember if I had the book, but wanted to read it.)   When you go to the library and bring home a book you forgot you own and the photo is extra funny if you know that freaking annoying song. #doublebooked #libraryhaul #bookwormlife #bookstagram #bookwormproblems #notaproblem #parentinghumor #daddyfinger #itsaproblem #sharingiscaring #yourewelcome #imsorry A post shared by Lorna @ Gin & Lemonade (@gypsiewriter) on Feb 18, 2018 at 3:11am PST   Two copies of Here I Am means that freaking song in my head...

Over the weekend, the fam and I did an experiment.  We tried a road-trip to Inverness without the added interestingness of staying overnight somewhere. Our experiment garnered varying results.

I put my morning coffee in my giant turquoise Starbucks travel mug and we piled in the car. Now. I have always encouraged Isla to be her own person. An example is this: The kid wakes up every morning and wants to wear a dress...

My Chronicle Book Box Unboxing & Bonus

And so, I’ve said before that book-mail is the best kind of mail.  But yesterday I GOT THE BEST BOOK-MAIL. I was a big mope until My Chronicle Book Box arrived, and with it came the sun. Honestly, look at the bookish grooviness:     And feast your eyes, fellow book geeks.  3 books I DON’T ALREADY HAVE… The books: Murder At The Mill, M.B. Shaw The Devil’s Claw, Lara Dearman The Confession, Jo Spain I got the Crime & Mystery box for free in exchange for my honest opinion.  (See my work with me page.) My honest opinion:...

12 Somewhat Useful Things To Say When Someplace is Inaccessible

And so, I’ve been thinking of a P.S. to add to yesterday’s post.  I know I’m not the only person out there who deals with access issues. Here are some things I’ve actually said to people who own businesses that are kindasortamaybe or completely inaccessible. Try these next time you’re out: Could you please remove the bucket/sandwich-board/freaky-looking naked mannequin.  It’s a toilet, not a bin. No, dude.  I just use it for the parking. Thank you for putting us to the absolute back of your fine establishment. But what if I like being a fire hazard? Because it’s the...
