Walking the Dog in the Fog

I found this when scouring through my archives.  I wrote this about ten years ago for a competition.  It didn't win. I was walking the dog Outside in the fog I lost that daft dog Outside in the fog I lost my left clog Tripping over a log Looking for the dog Outside in the … Continue reading Walking the Dog in the Fog

This and that

Site Stuff I was flitting about the site the other night and I realised that I don't write as often as I would like.  I have said this many times over the last nine years (yes, nine) and it gets on my nerves that I don't write as often as I would like.  It's ridiculous … Continue reading This and that

There’s a ticket behind the desk at Waverley for you Heckingbottom choo choo

Sunday's derby.  I have never been so underwhelmed going into a derby as I was yesterday.  Other games, yes, but not this fixture.  I got to my seat about kick-off, which is about normal these days.  Already the thought of going for chips was luring me away from the game. Roll on three hours and … Continue reading There’s a ticket behind the desk at Waverley for you Heckingbottom choo choo

The time is now

I don't know whether to be hot or cold.  A week or so ago I was melting around the house in shorts and a vest top.  Now it's the complete opposite, I'm freezing.  The bedroom window is closed at night, the extra blanket is on the bed.  It's like winter came in a week.  This … Continue reading The time is now

Hello again! I’m watching the Women’s World Cup

Good day and welcome to the blog I don't write enough in.  I don't know where the time goes.  I last wrote in April and it's now the middle of June.  Not that you'd know it by the weather.  I'm back on the winter jacket at the moment.  I even had to take a hot … Continue reading Hello again!

Life does not begin at forty

Back in December I wrote a blog about becoming a "Cougar".  The reason for this is because I had turned forty. Four-oh, forty.  The BIG FOUR OH. All through my years of life I've heard the phrase "life begins at forty".  Does it? I must have missed that bus. I was warned by friends who … Continue reading Life does not begin at forty

Your child is not gender neutral until they make up their own mind

I've been thinking.  Not always the best thing, I know, but this time I'm sharing. It's about gender. I'm all for people being who they want to be, but I want them to figure that out by themselves and I don't want them being guided that way by their parents. I'm a female and I … Continue reading Your child is not gender neutral until they make up their own mind

Put the singing section back in the east where they belong

There's a lot that can be said about Saturday's Scottish Cup tie between Hibernian and Celtic at Easter Road.  A lot of them not good.  I'm not talking about the match either.  About that, I thought Hibs were really good in the first half, it was competitive.  Second half went a bit awry.  Rare service … Continue reading Put the singing section back in the east where they belong
