Lanterns In The Rain

13th January 2018

There was a road-trip to Edinburgh while Mom was here.  Of course.  And the three of us go to the zoo whenever we get the chance.  I’d wanted to Isla to see the Giant Lanterns of China since they arrived at the zoo.  And I thought taking my Mom would be a chance to make some groovy memories. Except the trails were too much walking for Mom so she couldn’t come.  The zoo did offer Mom a wheelchair, but with…

Did I Just Say That Out Loud?

22nd November 2017

‘Did you enjoy your stay?’ ‘Well, no.’ I said. We were checking out of our hotel on our most recent road-trip to Edinburgh. My mouth gets me in trouble sometimes. Like that time I asked Neil to marry me.  Or the time I threw my Dad out of my house.  Or that time I asked why the shit am I friends with these people?

His hosts didn’t buy any books. He wanted some postcards. No such luck. In the…

18th July 2012

Some more maybe not-so-little known facts about me: I have a serious problem with spending money in places that don’t have accessible toilets, or  anywhere I have to move furniture to get around.  I engage Go Go (or not) Gadget Camel if the place sells books or cheesecake.  I’m weak. Current obsessions include: Yankee Candles, escapist books, my father’s incredible shrinking tumour, episodes of Roseanne (before they won the lottery) and wedding blogs. The highlight of my day yesterday was…

One Year Ago Today

1st December 2010

This time last year, I was moving into my fifth flat in Glasgow.  I’d lived there since 2006 and had five addresses. The reason I moved so much wasn’t because I’m fickle.  It was because two of my five landlords neglected to pay the mortgages on the flats I occupied.  And the secure places had lifts that liked to break down when I needed to go to work, or on nights I had tickets for concerts.  During one particular breakdown…
