A New Year

Here we are a that time of the year when nothing makes sense. That bit between Christmas and New Year where time seems to disappear and the days of the week mean nothing. You don't even have to be on holiday (or, this year, furlough) for the whole week not to make sense. It just … Continue reading A New Year

The Uplifting Power of a Stranger

Here we are in the Christmas season. It has, in a way, been a struggle to get here. Now we are it seems that the politicians can't decide how we should spend Christmas because of Covid-19. I believe that no one is waiting on the politicians making any decisions and I think that people have … Continue reading The Uplifting Power of a Stranger

It’s Sort of Looking a Bit Like Christmas

It's been a heck of a year, not in a good way. We've been locked down, locked out, stuck without being to visit friends and family if they're not within a certain bubble. People have died, people have suffered. COVID-19 has not been good to anyone in any way. Back in March most of the … Continue reading It’s Sort of Looking a Bit Like Christmas

I came across this song during a surf of Spotify. This a brilliant, if simply produced video and a song that should mean … Continue reading OK Not To Be OK

Blind Leading the Blind

I think there comes a point when you pretty much realise that you are completely ready for lockdown to be over and are ready to return to work and some sort of normality.

It’s fine to miss having a haircut

Good day dear reader.  I hope you are well.  These are difficult times indeed and as we pass the eighth week of lockdown it's amazing to think that we've actually done it.  It's not finished, of course, but if someone had said to you this time last year that pubs, clubs and non-essentials shops would … Continue reading It’s fine to miss having a haircut

Say Hello for your Mental Health

Lockdown has been a strange time.  In normal times I walk in and around my local area and we’re lucky to have such a beautiful area to walk around in.  Edinburgh is incredibly lucky that it has so many places of beauty all within a city.  We really don’t have to travel far to find … Continue reading Say Hello for your Mental Health

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 … Continue reading I’m baaaaaaack
