Drinking Red Wine On Vacation

'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 … Continue reading Drinking Red Wine On Vacation

Coffee & Books I Didn’t Buy Yesterday

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that yesterday, the crew and I tried to go out for an actual coffee.  We even left the house while it was still morning.  I was quite impressed with us.

Finding Zen On An Ordinary Day

We travel down to Edinburgh on Saturday and fly to New York on Sunday.  Things have been a little hectic around here, but we are nearly ready to go. I'm looking forward to being on the plane.  Planes are where I don't have to take any phone calls, charge any phones, or answer questions harder … Continue reading Finding Zen On An Ordinary Day

Driving Through Doors

Today’s post was going to be about my ultimate stress-busters. A numbered list with keywords and phrases like What The Hell is Hygge? or Just Find Me, Google, Damn it! A (somewhat universal, but still rather personal) list that would garner such comments as: ‘Great post!’ b. ‘Your so funny!’ iii. ‘Can I have tea … Continue reading Driving Through Doors
