No Distance Over Dinner

26th October 2018

And so, this is literally the first chance I’ve had to sit down (pun may be intended) and write properly in two weeks. Or something. I should take a tape recorder on my travels. Isla has been off school for two weeks on sneaky Scottish school holidays that used to be for farming, and are now for nothing. But, we did stuff with those two weeks. There was a lot of riding shotgun for me. I love road trips. Listening…

If We Were Having Coffee & Writing

2nd September 2018

And so, if we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve yet again reclaimed my corner of the home office.  Cozy with my Tiffany lamp, my butterfly print, and um, a giant filing cabinet. For real, though. I meant to write yesterday, but we had to go pick up Neil’s new old man glasses. For real. Varifocals.

If we were having coffee, and catching up on blog news, I’d tell you Sonia at Losing The Plot won the recent blog promo video giveaway. And Christine at I’m Sick and So Are You, in her infinite wisdom, has come up with 5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Read Gin & Lemonade.  Do you think sarcasm is the highest form of flattery?  Please say yes. Because then we can be friends. In real life, the fam and I took a week-long…

Have A Nice Day

13th May 2018

‘You know how new hair grows in under old hair?’  I said to Neil through the bathroom wall. ‘Yeah?’ ‘Well, all my new hair is gray,’ I said. Before we headed off on our most recent road trip, I spent some time looking at myself in the mirror. I figured out some things.  I should probably drink more water. I may start wearing some make up, all the time.  But not really. Ah’m no bad, as they say over here.…
