About the break in

June 24, 2019
So, someone tried to break in to my flat last night. I, miracle of miracles, was actually in bed and asleep at 2:30 this morning when I was awoken by loud noises at my door.  Tired, still slightly drunk, I go into the hall, look down the stairs to my front door... And there's part…

  • On leaders and elections
    June 2, 2019
    Yes, it's going to be a political entry. There's actually two leadership changes coming up in British politics.  Lets start with the Tories, because there's a lot more to unpack there. As discussed in my last political entry, Theresa May is stepping down.  In fact, Friday is her last day as Tory ...

  • That familiar buzzing needle sound
    June 1, 2019
    So, yeah, about the pic... It turns out that the shop I talked about yesterday won't exchange the top.  Purely because I paid using PayPal.  I need to wait until the top is back at the depot, wait for my refund them buy the thing I actually bloody wanted again. So, I got new ink. …

    I had to wait in today.  I had ordered a large Scotland Women's World Cup home top, because I prefer the collar to the one on the normal top and it was being delivered today.  Having waited in, it was finally delivered.  And they messed up the order. I don't mean as in they sent…

    I wasn't planning on writing another political entry just yet, but the last few days have been, well, fucking bananas. It all started on Wednesday.  This was when Theresa May announced the timeline for the fourth vote on the Working Agreement Bill.  Yup, the one that had been voted down three tim...

    Just a heads up, this entry will be video heavy. So, I've got my next appointment with Working Links.  So, we'll see what happens with that. The new Thomas Harris arrived on Tuesday.  I've read it already.   It's damn good. Spoke to my mum today.  My sister is up in Shetland for a week for…

  • A tale of two elections
    May 16, 2019
    As warned, this is a political entry. I want to start by talking about the local council elections.  There are the closest we get to mid term elections and, as such, are used as a barometer for how the parties are doing. Now, traditionally the party in power loses councillors in these elections. ...

  • Let’s go steal an entry
    May 11, 2019
    I find it pathetic that they need a sign like this. I have lager.  I have Scotch.  Single malt.  Finally getting round to trying the whisky glass and the whisky stone I got at Christmas.  It's also the first time I've tried sipping whisky instead of necking it. I have accumulated a lot of whisky&...
