amandaviljoen {gin & freo} •• home, Gin & soda made and now watching Freo (hopefully) demolish the Eagles ️ •• Perth is turning on the weather too ... look at that sky 🏼 •• #noedit #nofilter 2d
  •   ali_bailey Hendricks is my fave 🏼 2d
  •   amandaviljoen @ali_bailey ... I'm 'new' to gin and had this recommended to me I don't understand drinking gin w tonic, though?! I think it inhibits the flavour and I don't like it much either x 2d
  •   ali_bailey I won't drink any other gin - it's revolting I do like tonic though. I like that Hendricks should to be garnished with cucumber slices rather than lemon - different flavour, but so yum 🏼 I came across another gin I wanted to try, but couldn't get it here and now I've completely forgotten what it was even called 2d
  •   ali_bailey And I'm totes imagining you having gin shots now because you don't like the tonic 2d
  •   amandaviljoen ... oh, that's a really good idea, @ali_bailey YES! Cucumber! Forgot about that next one x 2d

amandaviljoen {just sayin'} •• we try to instil good values and manners into our children ... however, sometimes we need to look at ourselves • If someone texts you, text them back, if someone messages you, message them back, if someone comments, comment back (I really *try* to do this ) if someone calls you, call them back ... they've taken time out of their day to say "hey!" 🏼 You are no busier than anyone else ... I love a good old '🏼x' to acknowledge someone, if I can't leave a detailed message btw •• #werd #word #mannersdontcostathing #justsaying #petpeeve 4d

amandaviljoen {small world} • you know those 'annoying' 20 question thingy's that come around in ebbs and flows? Well, I always read them ... I'm nosey, like that! I was reading Amanda's from @millywy (who I've been following for quite awhile) and two things stuck out :: "lived in Fremantle" and "had leukaemia when I was 15" ... "Oh! I went to technical college w a girl that that happened to" ... long story short, we went to Freo TAFE together (when we were 15!) I visited her in hospital, when she was ill, and have thought about her often since then! Now she has a brilliant little business that I got these too cool cushions from! ️ Instagram is such an amazing forum for connecting w people • 6d

  •   amandaviljoen We do live close, @mlbransby81! It is seriously crazy, in Perth, it's not 'nine degrees of separation' more like TWO!!!! x 6d
  •   amandaviljoen My mind was just ticking over, @karens__photos ... and I was putting all these things together and thought "hmmmm, I wonder if it's her!?!" and it was! x 6d
  •   amandaviljoen I love that, about Perth, @snaphappy_ali ... you always know someone, who knows someone, that you know! x 6d
