25 times when only a gin and tonic will do

Stressed mum

Gin lovers out there will understand that under certain circumstances the only solution is to pour yourself a well-deserved Gin and Tonic, with the world’s best gin!

This could possibly turn into a tick list for some of you out there!

Parenting

The little bundles of joy that grow through the terrible twos into the more terrible teens but you couldn’t love them any less, however there are a few occasions where you find yourself reaching for the bottle…

When your three-year-old tells you he’s polished the new car… with a stone.

When your teenage daughter bursts through the door, tears streaming down her face to tell you that Zayn has left One Direction…

When your teenage daughter bursts through the door the next day to find out that One Direction are taking a break…

When the babysitter cancels…

When you’ve booked a family holiday but your teenager refuses to go because there is no Wi-Fi…

When your six-year-old accidently overhears you speaking about putting the presents under the Christmas tree…

When finally the house has gone quiet but you can’t relax as that means the children are up to mischief…

When your 10-year-old daughter insists on joining Facebook because ‘all her friends have it’…

When you hide from your toddler in the bathroom to get two minutes’ peace…

Students

Perhaps surprisingly, many students are fans of artisan gin like NB Gin (wasn’t it cheap cider and boxes of wine when we were students?).

You’re the type of student who has a limit of £5 on food shopping for the week because the rest of it has gone towards buying quality gin!

When you get in from a lecture, aiming to get ready for a big night out to find your electricity bill needs topping up, hello frizz ball…

When you’re singing your heart out in the shower, just about to rinse off the conditioner when the water goes from steamy hot to freezing cold…

When your embarrassing parents turn up at your front door, out of the blue and try making friends with your flatmates thinking they’re ‘down with the kids’

When someone steals your milk…

At work

Whether you work in an office, deal with customers or even run your own business, there is sometimes something that makes you wish you had a large G&T at the ready.

When you have that sigh of relief because you think it’s Friday, only to be shocked to find it’s actually only Tuesday…

When it’s 4:58pm and you are just about to pack everything away and the phone rings…

When it’s Monday morning (or is that just us?)…

When the coffee machine breaks and the only other alternative is decaf…

When the opening hours extend in the run up to Christmas…

When you work in retail and the Christmas music has already started playing in October…

When your boss signs you up for compulsory team building exercises…

When the customer is definitely not always right…

Being an adult (it’s rubbish sometimes)

When you wake up late and you rush to the car to find that it’s completely iced over and you have 15 mins to get to work…

When you remember being an adult means you have responsibilities… and a mortgage…

When you order a pizza and say ‘love you, bye’ by accident…

When you book a romantic getaway to be told that the rooms were mixed up and you have bunk beds…
