Welcome Back!

Well, it's certainly been a while. During my time spent neglecting the ole blog, I did accumulate some great stories and words of advice that will be coming your way. But where have I been? After graduating, I worked non-stop and planned and planned so that I could go on a trip across Asia and Oceania... Continue Reading →


Finding Somewhere in Nowhere

Last minute trips are one of the best things you can do if you have the freedom to do it. Air bnb is also a lifesaver when it comes to wanting a short trip not too far on the cheap. When I realised I had a few days off before going back to work and... Continue Reading →

An Adventure in Loch Lomond

Picture the scene: This time last week I went for a walk in Stirling which ended in my legs going numb due to the hail (that soon turned to sleet and then finally snow) and my hands taking a good 3 hours to regain circulation. Today? The sun is shining, it's WARM, and I don't... Continue Reading →

You paint white lines across the sky, Casting through the blue. Merging shades, patterns form, A picture that you drew.   Adding trees, outlines show, Your brush flurries from up high. Now branches form: black on blue, A silhouette upon the sky.

Your Story, My Story

[This is version one of a story I wrote. After writing and editing, I then changed the plot line around the characters, creating a rather different version two which will follow soon. Note there will be many similarities between the two pieces of writing as one came from the other.] Your Story, My Story  ... Continue Reading →
