A Thank You to my Car

My little petrol guzzling car,

We’ve done 34,000 miles together. Remember the first 10 miles? My dad was in the passenger seat, clutching on for dear life, as I learnt to drive you. I remember that time well, we were followed by a large lorry and I was whizzing around roundabouts, praying that the lorry would indicate off. There was also that time the wind was so strong, the L plates flew off. Every Monday night you came with me to a photography group that my dad and I went to, and every week I got a bit more confident on those windy country roads.

A Weekend in Wintery Dollar, Clackmannanshire

My Annual Pumpkin Fix at Arnprior Pumpkins

Our annual trip to Arnprior Pumpkins has come around so quickly.   So quickly, that I’ve barely had time to look out my Autumn clothes and cosy scarves. I’m still in denial that it’s not August any more. There’s a lot going on at the moment so I’ve not been able to celebrate Autumn as

4 Days in Paris

Ah, Paris. It’s a city of culture and beauty. Having only ever been to Paris for Disneyland when I was 4, I was excited to experience the city and see all the monuments that are so widely talked about.

Inveruglas in an Hour

What I love about Glasgow is how easy it is to escape into the countryside. In the time it takes to watch a tv programme, you can be at the top of Loch Lomond absorbing the peace and quiet and not having to dart out everyone’s way. For ages, I’d seen pictures of a wooden
