A good meal on Friday night at The Cruin was spoiled by the waiting staff. Generally I’m pretty tolerable of below par service (unless it’s downright unprofessional) as everyone makes mistakes, an apology usually suffices and I tend to take things on balance. If the food is good, the atmosphere welcoming, table positions are favourable…

Movie info from IMDB Movie reviews from Metacritic I’m part of an agency… called the IMF. What’s that stand for? Impossible Mission Force. [chuckles] Yeah right. So let’s get this straight. Tom Cruise, big budget action movie, and the guy behind Lost and Alias directing it? Can’t lose right? Right. And it doesn’t. Yes Philip…

Can’t believe it’s Friday already. This is despite both Louise and I thinking that YESTERDAY was Friday, something we are putting down to the lovely weather we HAD (grey and with a slight chill in the air this morning… welcome to Scotland). ~ My “should I post when I’ve nothing to post” post was interesting….

Glorificus Tempestas

Walking home, the sun warming my face, cherry blossoms plucked from the tree, gently swirling on the breeze. These are the days, the moments to capture and cherish. Walking past gardens stretching out of their winter slumber, awash with colour. Spring green punctuated vividly. Watching the bustling bee, fixated and engrossed. The cat, tail flicking…

Lyle links to an article that states: Most TV viewing in households with personal video recorders such as Sky+ is still live and “traditional scheduled TV will be around for a long time yet”, according to new research. We’ve had Sky+ for over a year now, and having finally switched my viewing habits to incorporate…

They say you shouldn’t post if you have nothing to say. But what if all you have to say is “sorry, can’t be arsed”? And what if your own conscience meant that, despite not having much to say, you felt you had to post just to let people know that they don’t need to worry,…

Mamma Mia

As part of my sister’s birthday, we all traipsed through to Edinburgh to watch Mamma Mia. I have to admit I was a little skeptical as to how good it would be, not because I’m not an Abba fan but because I couldn’t really figure out how they’d shoe-horn the songs around one story. So…

Pick an age

If you could be any age again, what age would it be? I’m not going to caveat anything, you can take the question as it stands, or extrapolate and add in your own “ifs” and “buts”. Now, whilst it would be easier to say “if I knew what I know now, I’d happily be 14…

Ever get one of those days when you can’t settle your brain on one topic? It whooshes around, steadfastly refusing your requests to please PLEASE focus on the document you are trying to read, preferring to hone in on any of eight or nine different topics. I used to fear this state of mind —the…

Sleeping is important to me, in many ways. I know if my sleep patterns get a little screwed then I ended up a little screwy. It’s a bit of a battle for someone who much much MUCH prefers the night-time to the morning-time (which one is the right-time again?) and has managed to get me…
