I needed all the fuel before a long day at the Ignite off-site in London. Black coffee and croissant at Notes coffee shop did the job.
It was Blake’s birthday last month. I can’t believe my nephew is 2 years old. He’s turned into a little chatterbox and I adore having him in my life, reading him books and being silly with him.
His 2nd birthday was the perfect excuse to go to soft play. As a 30 year old woman, I couldn’t resist taking off my shoes and diving about the ball pit with a bunch of toddlers.
You’ve met Brittany before. But I can never have enough photos of my friend, Brittany. This was after we’d stuffed our faces at West Brewery with currywurst.
Look at how cute sleepy Indie is. I left her at home while I headed to the office for a few hours. When I came back she’d made herself comfortable in my bed, which I hadn’t bothered to make even though I’m a 30 year old woman.
Ooh, I finally got around to checking out Alchemilla, one of Finnieston’s newest food spots. I’ll leave the food review to Briony, but I will say I enjoyed both the grub and the drink. I’ll definitely be back. Bonus points for being dog friendly, too!
Happy birthday, Indie. Although I’m not 100% sure when her birthday is, I got Indie from the SSPCA in November 2006. I was told she was around 6 months old at that point, which means her birthday is some time around now.
This year has been tough. Indie had a tumour cut out and got pancreatitis in the space of 4 weeks. She’s definitely back to her normal self now, which I’m relieved about. Love you, girl!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared Blake’s cheeky face. He’s growing up fast and my sister is doing a wonderful job of being a mother. He’s definitely hitting the terrible twos!
I love coffee. Living in Finnieston means there’s no shortage of coffee spots. This latte with coconut milk (I usually drink my coffee black, but this is a sweet change) was from The Cran. I also like their cakes.
I got Indie from Cardonald Cat and Dog Home when she was 6 months old. She’s now approaching 11 and—while I have noticed her slow down and her fur turn grey—she’s still going strong. Yesterday we went out a slow, 30 minute run and she kept up the with me the whole way.
Indie is my best friend.
Indie and I are wishing you all a happy new year from Glasgow in Scotland. I promise to take more photos in 2017. My blog is feeling a little neglected, but it’s purely because I’ve been focusing on building Jack. Photography is still important to me. I hope you have a creative year ahead!
