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

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

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

Sectarianism has had its time

Well, it's 2019 and here we find ourselves talking about many things we should have to be talking about, and guess what? In Scotland, rather than dealing with problems brought about because of the day and age, we're talking about Sectarianism.  In football.  Again. Why "again"? Well, because we never deal with it when it … Continue reading Sectarianism has had its time

Hibernian

I am not going to rant here. I haven't written a blog about Hibernian for a little while, so I'm not going to write one that is a complete moan about the beloved Cabbage. However, things are not great, I don't think anyone would deny that. Yes, there are people who will say "just get … Continue reading Hibernian

Something about Food and January

Here's the thing about having a blog. Sometimes I write 1,500 words and am extremely pleased with a blog and then I read it back and think 'well, that's just a rant.' Therefore it's banished to "drafts" forever. It is quite difficult, sometimes, to write blogs. Difficult to pick the right topic that people want … Continue reading Something about Food and January
