Yesterday was World Gin Day and I was looking forward to a Gin and Tonic with my new Roku Gin from Japan, however, I was so exhausted after exhausting my five-year-old. I just had dinner and went to bed. So I will be celebrating World Gin Day a day later…however, I really don’t need a special day to celebrate a nice drink of gin, do you?
Which was a pity due to the fact I do love a gin cocktail or two.
