What a year 2017 was.  It started with the swearing in of a new USA president who did not wait very long before he started signing Executive Orders. Britain officially began the process of leaving the European Union by triggering the Article 50 and “The Walking Dead” and “Game of Thrones” had everyone on the edge of their seats. In between all of this, we drank whisky, celebrated happy occasions and now start the count down to 2018.

Glenfiddich 15 yo Solera Reserve Whisky

Glenfiddich is one of my favourite distilleries.  I love the sweet fruity releases that consistently come from this Speyside gem.  Our Glenfiddich Gran Reserva 21 yo did not last long and we had to replace it rather quickly.  It was just that good!  The Glenfiddich 12 yo is the perfect dram for whisky newbies and the Rich Oak pairs well with cheese.  I have written 10 blog posts that feature Glenfiddich in some way or another.  More than the 8 blog posts I have done about Balvenie.  Definitely a distillery I love.

It was one of those weeks!  Frequent tantrums, fights about breakfast and school assignments  not finished. Getting stuck in traffic, with deadlines looming larger than the truck you are stuck behind. Afternoon rush from ballet to swimming, soccer to extra maths, all with a grumpy toddler in tow. The husband down with man flu and the geyser breaking and no hot water.  After a week like this, a glass of red wine is just not going to cut it.

Following from yesterday’s Mother’s Day Part 1 Gift series, here is the Netflorist Mother’s Day Part 2.  There were just so many beautiful gifts, I could not choose which I wanted of Mother’s Day.  Part 2 has a combination of alcoholic options, gifts and naturally flowers.  What I love about Netflorist is their personalizing options.   You can not only personalize gifts, but also whisky, wine and champagne.
