16th May 2018

First, if you’re reading this in your email (Hi.  And thank you) please click through to the actual post.  You will see that your Gin & Lemonade has been refreshed! I’m now using the Rosemary theme.  Because I love it and it kind of goes with gin, no?  Yes.  Let’s go with yes. I’m working with a very patient web designer (who I’m hoping to link to later, stay tuned!) Let me tell you how I got here. I wanted…

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. Baked potatoes and cheese for breakfast on the road, which Isla and I actually paraded in front of cheese-phobic Neil.  (She may look like him, but she’s…

A to Z Reading Survey

20th February 2018

OK, so.  My self-imposed post-a-day challenge is in the shitter, because I hate small talk.  My head is so full-of-thoughts, there’s no time in the day to do them justice. How many ways can you say I feel like I’m losing a bit of myself every day without sounding like a depressing cow? My solace is reading.  And Isla, but she’s three and I might be clingy. So, books. I found this A to Z reading survey from The Perpetual…
