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 […]

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 […]

I’m baaaaaaack

Good day/evening, dear reader. I came on here tonight to check the site was OK and I saw that I haven’t blogged about anything since November the 7th! Now, there are some who would class that as a good thing but, I’m assured, there are others who have missed my ramblings on Hibs or anything […]

Roadworks: Now GEMMAONLINE.CO.UK and other changes

Take me back to when life was simple and technology didn’t exist! Well, I don’t really mean that as such but this last couple of weeks have been a ‘mare with this blog. My original web address expired before I could renew it and this led to a general nightmare with 123 reg.  I flagged […]

We’re about to run out of Bubble Wrap

There are suggestions by people who have studied such stuff that schools should ban scrums and tackling in rugby and also tackling in football. That’s right, don’t have tackles and scrums so when the children head into adulthood and join clubs they haven’t a clue how to play the game properly and in time the […]

United as One

Dear Radicalised Nutters, I’ve just finished watching the concert organised by Ariana Grande.  It was called One Love Manchester.  It was fabulous.  It sent a message out, something you won’t understand. As you well know, 22 people, mostly young people, died when one of your ilk decided to detonate himself after an Ariana Grande concert […]

Living on my own: The stress of the back bedroom

The back bedroom in my flat has fast become the utter nightmare of the abode. It’s now a room where I only go if I have to. When I moved in the back bedroom was going to be an office/guest room.  That was the idea anyway.  I’d have two guest beds in one part of […]

Living on my own: Where does the washing come from?

Four months now I’ve been living on my own and for the life of me I don’t understand why I didn’t do this sooner. I actually live on a main road now.  At first I thought this would be weird.  Going from a streets where a car passed a couple of times an hour to […]

Living on my own *not a football blog*

I’m aware the whole site has become a bit Hibernian related recently and that is fine for followers who are Hibernian supporters, or even interested in football.  For people who follow me for other reasons it’s probably getting a bit wearing. So here’s a blog about living on my own.  No, not the wonderful Queen […]
