Coffee & Camp NaNoWriMo

23rd June 2018

If we were having coffee, I’d say that Isla’s 4th birthday is next week!  Regular readers might remember her third birthday. Let’s hope we can contain the balloons this year. Speaking of coffee, check out this thing of beauty from Toast Coffeehouse.  I miss the old country and wish they delivered.  Or, I’d just like to see my friends again.  That would work. Speaking of friends, Katie from Fatty McCupcakes will be visiting me as part of her UK tour.…

Blogging Is Supposed To Be Fun

22nd May 2018

Over the weekend, I met a bunch of groovy people, drank a lot, saw Deadpool 2, kissed my husband at the top of the London Eye. And snagged Second Best Overall Blogger at the Annual Bloggers Bash.

Blogging Is Like A Cup of Coffee

2nd May 2018

Most of my friends live nowhere near me.  This situation is amplified a thousand times when Neil is away for work. He’s not in the army.  He doesn’t work on a boat.  He’s a software engineer.  And working from home requires some city office time.  Apparently. I don’t begrudge that cheeky beer with his mates or his attendance at the pub quiz. Well, maybe a little.  I’m really good at pub quizzes. My point is.  I miss him. The day…

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…
