A small update because I have the Lurgy…again!

  Ugh it's been a snotty, sneezy end to the week. I woke up on Thursday morning with earache and a sore throat, and it's all gone downhill from there. For the past two days I have been lying on the sofa feeling a bit sorry for myself because I have a nasty old cold. … Continue reading A small update because I have the Lurgy…again!

Writing, Sookie Stackhouse and the Southern Vampires

I don't know what's happening to me today. It's 7.35pm and I have been chasing my tail all day. I got up later than I normally would and I've been trying to catch up with myself ever since. It's weird how being an hour later in your schedule can knock you off your stride. Sigh. … Continue reading Writing, Sookie Stackhouse and the Southern Vampires

A small death and some great books on writing

It is with mixed feelings that I announce the passing of our guinea pig, Sam. Mixed because I was quite fond of the wee guy and am a little sad. However, being the sole caretaker and shoveler of his poo, I will not miss having to clean him out. RIP Sam...you were a good piggy, … Continue reading A small death and some great books on writing

Lego, Goldman and a Deep Deep Trench

Forgive me readers for I have been bad. I have not written this blog for some time and the only two excuses I can give are: The Gilmore Girls and work beginning in my garden. The former because I recently bought Netflix and have been glued to the Gilmore Girls, all seven series of it … Continue reading Lego, Goldman and a Deep Deep Trench

Birthday cake, Taboo and Dog Saliva Downward Dog

It's amazing how quickly time flies! And it's true what they say: the older you get the quicker time passes. I cannot believe that 12 years ago I gave birth to my daughter. Where have the last 12 years gone??  It seemed like yesterday she was a wee scrap of a thing and now she's … Continue reading Birthday cake, Taboo and Dog Saliva Downward Dog

Throwing Cartons of Orange Juice and Florence Foster Jenkins

Things have quietened down lately and thank goodness. For a while there, myself and the kids were dining out rather a lot, which is good for seeing friends and family, but not great for the pocket. However, while we’ve been going out less, the house has not been peaceful thanks to my kids fighting with … Continue reading Throwing Cartons of Orange Juice and Florence Foster Jenkins

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…!

We went to the winter fair in Glasgow's George Square recently. It was kind of done by accident because what we were actually doing was meeting my step daughter for dinner, but we went to the fair afterwards. There was an old fashioned merry-go-round, which I love (excuse the pics, they were taken on my … Continue reading It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…!

The past week didn’t turn out quite how I wanted…

...you see I was on annual leave and I thought it was going to be nice and quiet. It wasn't. It was the busiest week I've had in ages. Sigh. Maybe this coming week will be quieter. I just want to be able to put my feet up for a little while...and read a book...and … Continue reading The past week didn’t turn out quite how I wanted…
