Living on my own: Lost fork

As everyone knows, I live on my own.  Kind of the point of this part of my blog haha! Many thinks baffle me about living in my own.  I’m convinced that a ghost lives here, that being Jimmy, the previous occupant.  He does various things like hiding my slippers and things like that. What is […]

Hibernian: Goals, chips with sauce and Sir David Gray

Apologies if this blog looks a bit odd.  WordPress tempted me into trying their new editor and, well, I don’t have a clue.  Here’s to hoping. Saturday 15th September 2018 saw us back at Easter Road after the international break.  A nice, normal, three o’clock kick off.  On a Saturday.  Lovely.  The journey to Easter […]

Living on my own: Actually living on my own

Before I get into this blog, just a little aside.  On Sunday night I nipped up to Tesco because I needed milk.  The stuff I had in my fridge had nearly forced an evacuation from the house.  Anyway, there I am at the self-service till thing and I scan my milk and the magazine I […]

Naomi Osaka – the People’s Winner

I don’t generally get outraged by things.  When I picture someone being outraged I picture them standing with their hands on their hips just being unable to comprehend anything other than what they are being outraged by and totally unaccepting of any other view point.  We all know people like that. What I am is […]

When a bookseller became the better sports broadcaster

CONTAINS PROFANITY Hallelujah! It’s finally happened! No, I’m not getting married – that would be a miracle, let’s face it – no, finally there was swearing in sport and the commentators did not apologise for it. Were these commentators working for Sky Sports? BT Sports? BBC, ITV, EPSN,  or Eurosport? No! It was Amazon.  Amazon […]

No football make-up disaster

Here I am, back again.  Every time I make a come back I disappear again, oh well.  Anyway, I’m probably back again for a bit.  I have so many ideas for blogs in my head that they might all come tumbling out in this one blog.  Or maybe not.  Maybe I’ll just go on at […]

Talk about Mental Health

The next time you hear or read someone say ‘Are you mentally ill?’ in a derogatory tone then that might be a good time to remind them that absolutely everyone has mental health.  The only difference is that some people have good mental health and some people have bad mental health.  It only takes one […]

Mind the Canyon

There’s something I have been meaning to do in the last twenty-four hours…oh yes, that’s it…LAUGH! Laugh at Craig Levein and his ridiculous “natural order” comments.  Laugh at him for just being HIM! Despite Hearts putting us out the Scottish Cup earlier in the year (you’d think they’d won the Champions League) we still have […]

Bus wankers!

Ever heard the term “bus wanker”? It was a phrase coined on the brilliant Channel 4 show “The Inbetweeners” and basically relates to someone who takes the bus. Well, I am a bus wanker.  Fully paid up to Lothian Buses with my Ridacard, I take, usually, about four buses a day, sometimes more so I […]

Living on my own: Who actually lives here?

G’day. Or G’night.  Indeed, could be G’morning or G’afternoon.  It really just depends where you are in the world and at what time you read this.  From my stats I know that this blog gets read across the world, which is nice. I forgot G’evening.  Anyway, it’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Living […]
