  •  On a whim the other day I decided to spring clean the flat. I mean SPRING CLEAN the flat. 5 hours later I was up to my elbows in bleach and shoes and old toys and everything you can imagine I have held onto that I don't need. On the plus side I managed to find my favourite shirt & a brand new, never been used satchel bag. Both of which I thought I lost when I moved last year. So every cloud. That shirt is going to be getting a lot of wearing this spring, let me tell you.
  • I cooked this little gem for Meat Free Monday last night and it was so good that I am already thinking about all the different variations I can create with it. Game. Changer.
  • I should tell you something. There's a little running joke between my friends and I that I am only allowed to drink out of a plastic cup. Because glass and I just don't go. I break everything. And my nickname when I was younger was 'splash' on account of my not being able to move from one side of the room to the other without spilling something. When I lived in Melbourne I was forced to drink out of a kids cup and previous boyfriends always pretty much resigned themselves to monthly trips to Ikea to restock. However I have treated myself to some very posh, expensive crystal wine glasses because those kind of treats make this kind of girl happy. We will see how long they last.
  • I'm pretty much only about this song right now. Obsessed doesn't even come close. I have actually woken up to it playing 3 times in the space of a week. Amazing.
  • I attended an awesome cookery class last Friday night with some awesome Glasgow foodie friends in the Merchant City. It was the best fun however a 6am start the following morning meant I beat a hasty retreat home to bed afterwards and left them supping champagne in Boudoir. I've changed.
  • I finally tried Skinny's burger joint in the West End of Glasgow. And although their alcoholic shakes rocked my world, the actual burger left a lot to be desired. So less said about that the better.
  •  Currently obsessed with this series of the BBC's Shetland with Dougie Henshall. Apart from completely fan girling over how good an actor he is, I just have a thing about dark, eerie Scottish dramas. The Crow Road is one of my favourite books and I re-watch the BBC adaptation every single year without fail. These programmes make me long for the Scottish wilderness, rippling lochs and single malts next to roaring fires. Booking a night away this week. It's happening.
  • On a more serious note a Smartie dropped off my biscuit into my tea the other day and I didn't actually realise until I took that final gulp of warm, milky Earl Grey. I think it might be the best thing that ever happened to me.
  • It's that time again. The time when I finally get to that longed for stage of being able to tuck my grown out fringe behind my ears. Only to start freaking out all over the place cause: 'Do I look better with a fringe?', 'Should I get it cut back in?' and 'Oh my god JUST BE HONEST?'. And then I just get it cut in again. Before starting the entire cycle again. Hair appointment booked for next week. It's hard being me.
  • Finally got all my photos up in this little flat of ours. Only taken me about 6 months. The windowsill is now littered with photos of my little penguin and I love it. 
  • Finally arranged a quiet and belated flat warming. Quiet. Intimate. Oh God please let it be quiet and intimate.
  • Oh and did I mention I am now a Pinterest addict? So that's good.
