Self service – we still need a human

Since 1967 we've quite often got our money from the Automated Teller Machine (ATM).  A very convenient way of getting money out of our bank without having to step inside a bank and stand in a queue.  Not that I was around in 1967 to experience as a new concept back then.  I can imagine … Continue reading Self service – we still need a human

#Hexit

I think it's time all the "let's give Hecky a chance" voices died down and looked at what we are actually seeing.  Our club is third from bottom in the SPL and the fact that we are there is disgusting.  Hibs are not a bottom of the league club, unless led by Butcher, yet here … Continue reading #Hexit

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
