Ranty moan

Why is the weather so crap at the moment? It’s almost June and I was freezing standing at the station this morning. Why are people complaining about Big Brother? Surely they are used to it by now? Shouldn’t they just be ignoring it? Why do people make such a fuss about whether Scots are supporting…Continue reading Ranty moan

Into the groove

Louise is home and annoyingly tanned, but I can put up with that. Her plane finally touched down in the wee small hours of this morning after a three hour delay and as it was a further hour or so before we got to sleep I decided to work at home today. Still, it’s good…Continue reading Into the groove

That World Cup question

Our First Minister caused a bit of a stooshy recently by stating that he wouldn’t be supporting England in the World Cup. But why should he? He’s not English after all.. As for me, well it’s a tricky one, that’s for sure. Ach, who am I kidding, it’s very straightforward. ‘Mon the Soca Warriors!! Actually…Continue reading That World Cup question

Two days off

Ahh the joys of a long weekend stretch before me as I’ve got Thursday and Friday off this week, and yes I booked them before Louise had decided to fly to Spain (which was a last minute thing, but not a thing.. ). Not that I’ll have much free time. Out for dinner tonight…Continue reading Two days off

New, old, sleeping

A couple of new blogs (links on the right in the ‘overflow’) to play with. The Big Brother one might be interesting, and Unreliable Witness already has shimmers of possibility. The update to WordPress and the activation of … er.. one of the spam plugins seems to have done the job. Well worth it. And…Continue reading New, old, sleeping


Dropped Louise off at the airport at 3.30am on Sunday morning. Wide awake when I got home so I upgraded WordPress, everything went very smoothly indeed (or you wouldn’t be reading this!). By 7am I was wilting and fell asleep on the sofa for a couple of hours kip, something I think contributed to my…Continue reading Quiet


What to start with, what to start with… Ohh come on, you know fine well. Love it or loathe it, the carnival/freakshow that is Big Brother has kicked in and what a marvellous piece of car-crash casting it looks to have been this year. From the campest gay in Glasgow (Shahbaz AKA the “wacky Paki…Continue reading Snippets
