  • I'm all about the coffee these days. All about the coffee. In fact it saddens me that I am such a rubbish sleeper and have to limit myself to two cups every day otherwise I could quite happily drink that stuff all the day long. Especially since we are having such a good summer and home-made iced lattes have become a thing again. 
  • Ava had her first blogger event when we hit up the West End of Glasgow for a day with iSwapsy. I don't bang on about affiliating myself with brands too much on this blog (or at least I try not to) but I am super behind this company and what they are about. Check them out if you are a fellow parent with a ridiculous amount of unworn kiddies clothing gathering dust in your cupboards. 
  • I've been eating all the quinoa in the world right now. I don't know if it's because I have a ridiculous amount of quinoa recipes saved on my Pinterest, if it's because it's such a summery food or if it's because I'm trying to keep my greedy appetite away  from pasta but damn that stuff tastes good. Check out this Spring Quinoa Salad recipe. On a hot day this plus a glass of really cold Sauvignon Blanc is the best. Believe me.
  • I watched the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony through my fingers. I mean I get it. I think if you were there then you would be TOTALLY into it - but jeez - that opening sequence with John Barrowman? Please tell me I wasn't the only one cringing a little bit here. Thankfully it ended a lot better. Although I know I am not as patriotic as I really should be I am enjoying the buzz it's generating around this city of ours. And I have lots of fun filled plans to take Ava down to some of the events at BBC at the Quay and for a wander around the Glasgow Green Live Zone
  • My friend had a terrible experience in a rather well known Glasgow pub which got a lot of attention all over Twitter a few days ago. You can read about it properly here. I always find it super disappointing when things like this happen. Particularly because I eat out with this person at least a couple of times a month and she is the one of the most polite and well-mannered people I know. 
  • I attended the launch night of The Tron Theatre's Home Nations Festival recently and what a great night it was. Apart from getting to schmooze with some of my most favourite Glasgow lovelies, we were also treated to a special performance of Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood which made this girl very happy followed by a lively drinks reception in The Vic Bar. I even managed to be home before midnight. Who am I?
  • Stay tuned for a new food series type post starting on the blog soon. I have managed to rope in some other Glasgow girls to tell me all about what is in their fridges at home and to tell me about their food heaven and food hell situations. Boring for some maybe. Me? I lap that shit up. If anyone is interested in joining in then just give me a little email using the contact form in the sidebar
  • Finally this ditzy brunette managed to leave her car keys sitting in the ignition of her unlocked car in the car park at Braehead shopping centre. So while you probably won't actually read this - I want to give a big shout out to the kind soul who spotted it, locked my car and handed them into customer services. You have got that karma shit down bud. I, on the other hand, need to lay off the coffee and get more sleep.

I'm definitely with you on the coffee front.
