Every morning Indie and I take a walk before work. It means I get to sit at the computer in peace. The past couple of days have felt very spring-like, so I took my camera with me. This is the Clyde Arc—or the squinty bridge as it’s known by locals.
It’s been a few months since I shared a photo of Blake. He’s almost 3 and growing up quickly. We can have conversations now, which has made being an Auntie even more fun! Toys ‘R’ Us is shutting down so stock is 25% off. I bought him a Skye toy from the Paw Patrol series. I think he liked it.
This was one of those Sundays I really enjoy. A day of uninterrupted me stuff, like taking Indie for a long walk, cleaning the house and going out for a run. The fact the sun was shining instantly put me in a good mood. These Scottish winters can feel awfully long, you know. The light in my apartment was on point and I had to capture Indie settling into this sun patch for a sleep.
This is Ella and Macy, my friend’s dogs. They’ve had some bad news about Ella’s health and there’s a chance she won’t be here in 6 months. It’s heartbreaking. I know how much my friend loves these dogs, so I offered to do a family shoot. Now they’ll have some nice memories to look back on. Here’s a photo I took of Ella when she was a puppy. They’re both lovely dogs and I know Ella will be getting lots of cuddles.
Okay, I lied. It’s not called Monty’s. It used to be Montogomery’s. Then Monty’s. Most recently it’s rebranded to 10 10. I don’t care what it’s called, as long as they continue serving Vietnamese coffee I’ll be there.
I’ve never visited Monty’s or 10 10 or whatever and not ordered the Vietnamese Coffee. It’s very sweet and a nice change from my usual coffee.
I’m a few days late in posting this, but the 25th of January was my birthday. Birthdays stop mattering after a certain age, but I made sure I had a day of ‘me’ stuff. It looked like this:Had breakfast at Tantrum Doughnuts Did a bit of work Bought a new video game (Wildlands. It’s really good.) Enjoyed tapas and cocktails in Finnieston
Instagram and I have a funny relationship. It’s one of the first apps I check in the morning, but the algorithm updates amongst other things irk me.
Follow me on Instagram for many more photos in 2018!
I’m as tired as Indie is in this photo. I’ve been training hard, lifting heavier (hit a PB of 90KG deadlift) and pushing myself on the treadmill. I’ve also been attending a circuits class for the last month. Most days I feel like I can be in bed for 9PM. Now that I’m 30 it takes longer to see the results, but I’m determined to keep going!
