Please Don’t Tell Me To Enjoy My Kid

18th July 2018

And so, a few days ago I was thinking about writing while eating a root beer Dum Dum lollipop. Thinking about writing is pretty much my natural state.  Working on, y’know, actually writing more.  Stick with me. The Dum Dum was a nostalgic addition courtesy of a recent care package from my mother.  It contains too many E numbers, and two handheld gamimg devices. Isla, at four, is apparently behind her peers in the use of gadgets  that are not…

Self-care & Cupcakes

9th July 2018

Funny story, I downloaded a meditation app.  It’s called Calm.  And I actually used it.  To meditate, find relaxation, hide, whatever.  This happened, a grand total of once.  So far. But let’s back up. My kid turned four.  And I met Katie from Fatty McCupcakes.  On the same day.  It was a groovy day. A day that included 20 cupcakes, 14 penguins, and a unicorn.  Or so we thought. The night before Isla’s birthday, Neil and I were wrapping Isla’s…

Getting Lost and Found in London

8th June 2018

‘I only give Purple Monkey to people I love.  So here.’ Isla shoved the aptly-named purple monkey in my face.  This recentish favorite creature was rescued from an otherwise depressing trip a safari park, back when Pokemon Go was still a thing. Purple Monkey follows Isla wherever she goes, every second Tuesday. I felt quite special when Isla decided I could take PM to The Bloggers Bash. We’d been at Dad’s for a barbecue.  With no marshmallows.  Made no sense,…

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. I clapped for myself like a seal, and rumors of my ambivalence/sore loser status have been greatly exaggerated. First, I want to thank anyone who nominated or voted for Gin & Lemonade .  This giant, global blogging community is a wonderful thing, and…

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.…
