Gin & Lemonade is Moving

25th November 2017

Hi, this is just a short note to say that after 7 years and a bit of blogging, I’ve just pressed the button on my own domain.  This move happens tomorrow and I hope you’re as excited as I am.

This afternoon, I found myself sitting with a bag of ice on my foot.  The kid throws a mean sippy-cup.  And then she came up and stole a piece of ice for her teeth. Sharing is caring. Here she is inspecting some of her Christmas haul. Complete with Christmas penguin deely-boopers. And here she is decorating her Daddy’s beard. Hope you’ve all had a great few days,…
