Aye I'm in Scotland! Yes actual real proper Scotland where scottish person type people come from! Whoa right? I know you are as blown away as I was when I crossed the's different here you see. It's a whole 'nuva' country like. They say 'Aye' a lot and they wear kilts and eat Haggis! NB. For those who don't know what Haggis is I am reliably informed that it is an elusive 3 legged sheep/pig type animal. Now though I haven't actually seen one with mi own eyes it cant be that elusive because they have it with everything?!?!?!?! Just this morning I was fed it with my fry up which consisted of the norm - you know bacon, toast, beans but then OH NO what is that on my plate nestled in between the beans an that elusive Haggis why it is a square sausage....I kid you not it was square. Now I am staying in Glasgow with Glaswegian types so I cannot generalise to the square sausage being categorically a whole country thing but whoa it was a shock and a half. Just glad I was sat down for that one. My apologies if you were not but I take no responsibility for any injuries caused during the reading of this bloglet.

What was I doing in Glasgow I hear the 3 of you who read my blog ask? Well you know because I told you but for the sake of anyone who is lost and happens upon reading this I shall tell you! I went to an engagement party. Yep a Glaswegian engagement party. Jayde and William (pronounced Will-yum by Scottish people and those who have amazing Scottish fake accents like me) got engaged at New Year and I came up to celebrate. I met them 2 years ago in Thailand and we back packed through to Malaysia and Singapore before going our separate ways - we've been through a lot, cockroach infested sleeper trains, hideously hung over stuffy coach rides, stormy island lightening strikes, Thai-Irish karaoke, St. Paddys day 2011 Irish-Singaporean style celebrations, night safaris, sunbathing on the 007 beach, watching sun set from Marina bay sands hotel and now a Glaswegian party.

I can't remember the point of this blog....ok the end for now. Bye!

I am back baby!

Hello world,

How are things? I have been away a little while and for that I am truly sorry but I was abducted by pirates and held hostage while I taught them how to swim, (front crawl and breast stroke....doggie paddle wasn't enough apparently). You see world pirates struggle with swimming don't you know that is why they always seem so angry....yep, yep, yep true story here. Anyway I am back and just in time for a quick but exciting bloglet.

It is exciting because Number 1 - I start a new job in 2 weeks so no more marking which means I will have time for blogging and possibly even vlogging....I owe Grovermauve of Grovermauve innane ramblings several million videos by now and am getting on it, sort of!

It is exciting because Number 2 - I actually loved blogging before and I even tried that A-Z challenge except I did it Z-A and didn't finish but my heart was in the right place sadly BT broadband was not!

It is finally exciting for reason Number 3 - sometimes I am a bit weird and this blog can/will continue to be an expression of that weird/charming/eccentric/endearing/craziness that I know we all secretly love so an insight into me, my life and anything else I feel would be of interest to you and your lives!

That's all. Continue with your day to day. Smile at a mirror, laugh with child and drink a cup of tea through a straw until my return! X

PS I'm in of the wild Haggis who I hear run free over the highlands...update shortly...
