Mr and I just decided in January that we would get married this summer. From my extensive bridesmaid experience I already knew that a wedding dress can take roughly 6 months to arrive, leaving me with little time to find 'the one'. By early February I had secured an appointment at a local wedding dress… Continue reading The Wedding Diaries – The Dress
I intended a race report from Stirling Half Marathon but I've left it so long it's practically a distant memory! Obviously the PB is memorable and the chafing...oh the chafing... ...I was so excited to see sunshine (it's been a long ass winter) when I woke on race day I swapped my running tights for… Continue reading Rambling
Just a Little Chaos
I am a terribly, unorganised person. It's actually ridiculous the predicaments I've gotten myself into purely because I failed to prepare. 'Fail to prepare, prepare to fail'. I've turned up at a wedding without the wedding gift - so embarrassing, I've also had to go to work wearing a sweaty sports bra and almost trainers… Continue reading Just a Little Chaos
It’s all Ed Sheeran’s fault
Just before Christmas Kevin tagged me in a link on Facebook to Ed Sheeran's re-recording with Beyoncé of his song Perfect. I'm not a huge fan of ballad type love songs but I am a huge Beyoncé fan ( hence the tag) and let's be honest everyone has a soft spot Ed. I fell in… Continue reading It’s all Ed Sheeran’s fault
The Office – Ep4 – The New Girl…. or Lady
Remember way back in July I mentioned that I was being moved to a new branch at work? Well it happened. On the 4th of Sept 2017. I know, I know, I'm only telling you about it NOW but in my defence I was waiting until I had fully settled in to my new surroundings… Continue reading The Office – Ep4 – The New Girl…. or Lady
I've never been big on resolutions. I'd make them, knowing full well I'd be over them a week in, quickly reverting back to the same old procrastinating, chocolate munching, gin sipping, telly addict I was the year before... I may or may not currently be lying on my bed in the room I'm supposed to… Continue reading 2018 Goals
Can’t cook, won’t cook
I am a self confessed foodie. I LOVE food, I love trying new foods and I have a very long list of favourite's because I could never choose just one! Considering my huge love of food, I strangely don't like cooking. I'm not terrible at it, but I'm not great either. I can follow a… Continue reading Can’t cook, won’t cook
Moving the damn wardrobe.
Winter, for me, is like a huge, solid wood wardrobe has been strategically placed at the front door with its doors open ready to encapsulate all my positive vibes and energy before they have a chance to circulate the house spreading their magic. What I'm trying to say is but I'm not good with metaphors… Continue reading Moving the damn wardrobe.
One for Parents
I'm not a parent so forgive me if it's arrogant of me to offer advice on parenting but hear me out. I'm a white girl, born in Scotland. Racism was never, to my memory, discussed in my household as a child, not at my friends houses, my church or even at my primary school. … Continue reading One for Parents
Today I had planned to be either road tripping La Cote d'Azur or signing the conclusion of missives on the purchase of a house... what was it Rabbie Burns said 'the best laid plans.... Instead, today I am at work, feeling a little miserable that my plans always seem to end up floating in the… Continue reading One Hundred
