That Time I Wore My Heart On My Blog

29th April 2018

Just in case you haven’t spent your vote for the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards, I thought I’d let you know what a vote for Gin & Lemonade would mean to me. Have I mentioned it would mean a lot?  Like a lot, a lot? Now, I’m a writer anyway, I would be honest, anyway.  But to be recognised for my honest writing on this blog, would honestly be fucking excellent. I’m going to put some of my personal favorite posts…

Driving Backwards Over Legos

26th April 2018

‘Mummy stay with me,’ Isla says after 67 books last night. We worked through a stack and then I had to drive backwards over some Lego to get to her bookcase. ‘Clean your room tomorrow, please.’ ‘OK’, she says.   ‘Read Miss Messy again.’ Sometimes she lays in our bed for stories, and sometimes I squeeze into hers.  If I don’t think I’ll get up again, I park beside her bed.  She crawls into my lap, still.  This kid.

A Long Way From The Boat

20th April 2018

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…

Recentish Additions To My Book Hoard & A Giveaway

18th April 2018

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…
