12 Somewhat Useful Things To Say When Someplace is Inaccessible

6th February 2018

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…

Lanterns In The Rain

13th January 2018

There was a road-trip to Edinburgh while Mom was here.  Of course.  And the three of us go to the zoo whenever we get the chance.  I’d wanted to Isla to see the Giant Lanterns of China since they arrived at the zoo.  And I thought taking my Mom would be a chance to make some groovy memories.

Life in the frosty north has been ticking along.  My NaNo novel has not. The highlight of my day yesterday was when Isla…

Drinking Red Wine On Vacation

13th September 2017

‘Isla, do you like America?’ ‘I love it.’ ‘Mumma used to live here.’ ‘Where? In the toilet?’ We were in the bathroom.  Although, she can be sarcastic, too.  Not her fault. And I should say Isla and Neil were in the bathroom.  I can’t even fit myself in most accessible stalls, let alone go with my kid, so Neil was on bathroom trips while we were in NY. They were in the bathroom and I was enjoying an iced cinnamon…

Day One, Again

13th August 2016

I’d lost track of how long I’ve been at this blogging thing.  But WordPress told me last week.  I’ve been writing at Gin & Lemonade for six years. Well. That makes me want to apologise that my last post before this was a muddy puddle.  But I won’t, because y’know, cute kid. Someone asked me recently how I was doing. ‘Yeah, she’s two.’ ‘I know,’ said my friend, in Edinburgh, on the phone, in a building where I used to…
