My Mother Has A Condition

9th April 2018

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.

London Book Haul

19th October 2017

Thought I’d share my book haul from London.  Because it is physically impossible for me to travel and not come back with books.  And penguin pillows.  Apparently.

Me: Oh, just looking forward to the Twin Peaks UK Fest…

22nd August 2017

Picture it: A relaxed but working writer on her laptop in a coffeeshop.  Sipping coffee and eating a complicated but delicious sandwich.  Inspired by the coffee shop music of various conversations punctuated by random laughter and maybe some tears.  Inspired by her coffee and her complicated but delicious sandwich. Setting the scene out the window.  Or at the next table. Happily caffeinated and writing words. That writer WAS NOT me. I know I said I’d be blogging throughout the…

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. What I learned from that exercise is that I…
