So…why, ‘Gin and Tulips?’

My name is Sarah-Jane and please accept my warmest welcome, to Gin and Tulips.

I spend far too much time writing, leaving me bespectacled and tired, for ninety percent of my days. I couldn’t not do it though…it’s part of me.

This is basically my pocket notepad, digitalised. 

I’ve decided not to give too much of a format…just to share what I am feeling or thinking about, where ever I may be, at that moment in time.

I hope you enjoy the scribbles.

Thank you for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hello Sarah-Jane, just stopped by to say “hi”. Lovely blog. I look forward to returning for a visit! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Penny
    Thanks for taking the time to say hi…and for the compliment ๐Ÿ™‚

    The door is always open.

    Don’t bother knocking…just come on in ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I think if you are not a Dr. Who fan I can’t help but reccommend…but if you get that all the time I understand.

  4. Hi Sarah! Thanks for the like! Looking forward to checking out more of your entries ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hello Sarah,

    Many thanks for stopping by my blog

  6. Hello Sarah
    Am not a big fan of formatting either…so I like the place already!

    From one Sarah Jane to another, hello!

  8. Loads of luck with your writing ๐Ÿ™‚ I am trying to become a writer

    • Thanks! I’m not really in pursuit of anything more than what I already have, though…I guess I’m pretty content. That said, I am always open to offers ๐Ÿ™‚

      Good luck honeybunch…I’ll come and visit again soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Hi Sarah-Jane….I love your sense of immediacy and your Gin and Tonic blog. The form of your blog (or the lack thereof..) is of no concern. Remember “form follows function..”. Content is everything!
    Oh, I hope you don’t mind my re-naming your blog—-I just can’t see myself drinking gin with tulips….damn flowers in your teeth and all….
    Be well,

    • Content is everything, I couldn’t agree more, Howard. Thank you for checking out Gin and Tulips (ahem!) haha. My tipple of choice is Gin and Tonic…but I’m pretty taken with Gin and Tulips, for recording my scribbles.
      I hope you drop by again soon!


  10. Gin & Tonic, Gin & Tulips, Gin & Two Lips. What ever works. Thanks for subscribing to my blog. I must admit I also thought of Sara Jane Smith when I saw your name. Great blog. Regards.

    • Sandra, some how you escaped me!
      And bravo, with the two lips…you’re the first to have seen that.
      Thank you for letting me know you liked G&T, I love knowing that.
      And, I really must find out more about this Sarah-Jane!

  11. Hi! Iโ€™ve just stumbled across your cute blog and really like it. I donโ€™t think people write enough poetry these days! It reminded me that I used to write reams of poems when I was an angst-y teenager but havenโ€™t done so for years. Maybe I should now Iโ€™m all about happiness instead (hence the blog!) Thanks for posting and Iโ€™ll keep reading. Feel free to stop by sometime. Peace x

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the G&T experience ๐Ÿ™‚

      Poetry is not so widely loved these days. But I’m out and proud…I love it; to read it and to write it. I get excited when I read something that appeals to me. I know, I’m a geek ๐Ÿ™‚ a nice geek, though…I promise.

      I’ll be sure to check out your blog, hopefully read your happy poetry. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you for taking the time to say hello ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. But what do the gin and tulips mean together?

  13. I love your blog!!! Now following and enjoying the English touch….. especially the gin ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Please to make your acquaintance, Sarah. I wish you the best and do hope to continue sharing words with one another, sincerely.

    My best,

  15. I love your poetry and your quirky posts, so I have nominated you for the ‘One Lovely Blog’ Award. Keep on being so lovely! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh, thank you for thinking of G&T…wonderful! I’d like to thank my friends and family and all of the frolicking G&T Lovers, for all their support; wait. Do I need to do anything?

      • Well, the usual thing to do is just to tell seven random things about yourself, then nominate other bloggers. But just answer in any way that feels good, Ruleofstupid wrote a lovely, funny rant and I know many people have answered with beautiful poems too! So it’s up to you, and there’s no pressure really to answer either. I just wanted to include your lovely writing. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Thank you for including me…I’m so glad you enjoy my scribbles. You’re a sweetheart, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Dear Sarah-Jane. What gives? Don’t think that your absence has gone unnoticed. That’s 2.5 months now. I find this to be unacceptable. Please return and give us something to read.

    • Well, that got a smile.
      How the devil are you, Trent?
      The truth is, I got all melancholic and was writing awful confessional rubbish that was only fit for the bin.
      My scripts are going from strength to strength though….so that is something.

      • I’m doing well. Honestly, I’m not one for confessional rubbish, it always feels like blathering. Glad the scripts are going well – I still remember that one brief bit you had a while ago, it was awesome.

  17. Wow – over 3 years of following you, and you still have a lovely blog.

  18. Btw, just stole your verbiage for the disclaimer (okay, shifted the email address to mine), just wanted to give you credit for ironically stealing your content about not stealing your content.

    I believe the kids refer to that as “so meta”. Or some other sort of bs.

  19. Are you still posting? I’d love to read your stuff.


Please feel free to say something...
