Oops. As promised last week (and I did send it on time, at least) here is the submission I sent to Rhoda Grant MSP in response to her proposal to criminalise the purchase of sex in Scotland. The website does not seem to have put anything up yet, but I will post a link when […]

a quick (but important) one…

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Huge apologies for the tardiness and neglect, but I promise a proper post is on it’s way – as some know already it’s been a mad couple of weeks and catching up/recovery is the name of the game at the moment. For today, I’m posting to remind everyone that we now have one calendar month […]

reasons to be cheerful…

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

I post, for a change, from the warmth and comfort of my bed. Well the current one, anyway. This particular bed (the 5th one I’ve graced in the last ten days – sacre bleu!) is in my specially arranged weekend-off-for-Frightfest* digs and roughly ten minutes walk from London Bridge; alternatively, five minutes if you believe […]

along came a…

Monday, September 12th, 2011

And a peaceful week as ever to follow the jetsetting – I have spent the majority of the past few days enjoying the calm and catching up on the usual tasks that the stamp-paying self-employed look forward to most of all; hours of unpaid admin, catching up on bills/correspondence and in my case, organising transport, […]

o scotland’s hills for me!

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

And another happy and fruitful trip draws to a close, leaving me with a spring in my step, a warm glow and a suitcase comfortingly replete with enough salt, sugar and saturated fat to knock over a Nessie. As visits to new cities go, Inverness can certainly take it’s rightful place among my favourites despite […]

you take the high road…

…and I’ll take the 1135 First Scotrail service to Inverness (calling at Haymarket, Kirkcaldy, Perth, Dunkeld and Birnam, Pitlochry, Blair Atholl, Newtonmore, Kingussie, Aviemore and Inverness). A surprisingly busy train it is too, and I post having created an Area with coat, Kindle and knitting placed carefully about the periphery of my table seat in […]

Firstly, and as so many have now asked, above is a picture (of one at least) of my oft-mentioned piscine companions; Chubby Chops is a brand new addition to the household, and is settling nicely in Tank 2 having shrugged off a touch of whitespot from the pet shop. He enjoys eating, digging, and getting […]

and i love to live so pleasantly…

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

…even though it may not be a life of luxury (although a quick peep inside my gloriously full refrigerator could possibly form the basis of a persuasive argument to the contrary) I am enjoying a busy yet leisurely few days, until today having shamefully not shown my face at the gym since last Sunday (mostly […]

you know it’s a bank holiday when…

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

…the pervasive chill filling the apartment emanates not from the open windows, the comfortingly well stocked fridge-freezer nor even from my reaction to the eleventh ‘hey babe’ text message of the weekend; in time honoured BH tradition the combi boiler has decided to join the rest of the nation in kicking back for a bit […]

keep on running…

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Before I do anything else, and bearing in mind I have an impromptu mad dash to That Sheffield tomorrow for a catch-up dalliance en route to my original destination of Coventry on Thursday (and have to pack!), I need to thank the people who have already sent Race For Life donations via Paypal since I […]
