A Long Way From The Boat

And so, I was sitting with my Made of Awesome eating cheesecake and consulting the Oracle  Google about options for my hen/bachelorette weekend. ‘But what do you want to doooo?’ she asked. ‘I don’t care.  Surprise me.  No Loch Ness cruises, please.  And no pampering bullshit. But surprise me.  Should we take a cocktail-mixing class?  Or go back to Prague? New York?  Surprise me, though.  I don’t care.’ ‘How many people are we inviting?’ ‘Everyone.  No one.  Just us.  Just send me somewhere by myself.  Can I take Neil?  I really don’t want to go.  I’m not a girly weekend kinda...

Recentish Additions To My Book Hoard & A Giveaway

I’ve been promising a bookish post, and here it is.  Grab a beverage first, I’ll wait. I’ll be linking up with WWW Wednesdays to share what I’ve recently read, what I’m reading, and what’s on deck.  But maybe not in that order. Real talk time, I read one book in March.  There’s really no excuse for that except to say I’ve been writing more. AndIhavenootherexcuse. However, the one book I did read was 10 stars and kinda like nothing I’ve ever read before.  I have no fewer than three copies of Goblin by Ever Dundas.  Goblin was my road...

7 Years of Gin & Lemonade

I’m feeling nostalgic, and today I thought I’d take a trip down blog memory lane. For better or worse, but mostly better, I’ve been writing on Gin & Lemonade for 7 years and counting. I’ve travelled since I was 4 years old, but this blog began as a drunken idea I had in Italy when I was 25. After a frustrating but daresay um, an ultimately uplifting day of cobblestones and access issues followed by beautiful food and lots of drink, I had a thought. I couldn’t be the only disabled person that used a wheelchair and travelled anyway,...

7.5 Recent Writing Excuses

And so I’ve sat down to write another post several times this week. This is what happens the second before I start to write, and therefore get no writing done: Excuse 1: The phone rings. Mom/Dad: Whatcha doing? Me: Writing. Mom/Dad: You should write more about ME! Me: OK, are you sure you guys hate each other? Because Mom/Dad said the same thing. Excuse 2. My massage therapist arrives for what I like to call my monthly maintenance.  Even though I put her appointments on the calendar, the calendar lives behind the fruit bowl and never gets looked at. Let’s...

My Mother Has A Condition

Our most recent family road-trip was a weekend in St. Andrews.  We were up with the birds on all the days. We actually loaded the car on Friday, after a coffee with my Dad in honor of my Grandma’s birthday, and I (humbly?) shouted from the blog-tops about the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards. Baked potatoes and cheese for breakfast on the road, which Isla and I actually paraded in front of cheese-phobic Neil.  (She may look like him, but she’s a mini-me.) Now.  You might argue that I’m addicted to social media, but before this weekend, I never took...
