Day 219 – Just Desserts…

After a full day working in the garden, a ‘special’ gin and tonic was the least we deserved, even if we were almost too tired to enjoy it! Very handy having our own ‘cocktail corner’ in the kitchen…

Day 166 – Duck or Grouse…

I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!

Day 94 – Message In A Bottle…

Yesterday’s lunchtime visitors brought me a belated birthday present. Fair to say that most of my birthday gifts this year involved gin, and this was no exception – a monthly ‘subscription’ of different gins to try! I’m looking forward to future deliveries…

Day 89 – Don’t Drink It…

… all at once! Yesterday was my birthday, and as well as some other lovely gifts, I had these three bottles of gin! Pink Pepper is definitely my favorite, but who doesn’t love Monkey 47? Conker Gin is from Dorset where we spent the last few days, and this one is Navy Strength so 57% proof – wow, that’s strong!

Day 33 – Don’t Be Fooled…

… by the sunshine. It’s a lot colder here than it looks – barely above freezing today. In the summer we’ll have the doors open and be sitting outside our little ‘gin palace’ at the top of the garden, enjoying the views and a G&T, but for now it’s all closed up against the elements.
