Indie Enjoying the Evening Sun

One of my favourite things to do is take my dog, Indie, to the pub with me. It’s very sociable. A lot of people will approach you and start conversations. She also enjoys being by my side while I sip on a gin and tonic.

 
 

Drizzly Glasgow

Ugh, Glasgow was looking mighty depressing on this day. I’m trying to get into the habit of carrying my camera everywhere, and let’s be realistic—in Glasgow that means a lot of dreary shots like this.

 
 

YO! Sushi Is Back!

Yo! Sushi was a staple of Buchanan Street. I was a regular for takeaway and was disappointed when it closed some time back. Now it’s returned! This time setting up camp on West George Street in the old Pizza Hut building.

My friend, Laura, and I haven’t caught up in 6 months. We’ve been busy being adults. So we decided to have our mate date at Yo! Sushi, despite Laura expressing reservations about sushi. “I like the ones with vegetables and that’s it.”

The menu had all of my favourites—udon noodles, gyoza, tempura… Even Laura gave her meal a glowing review and was adventurous with trying new dishes.

We finished our meal by sharing dessert(s) and drinking matcha lattes.

10/10. Will be back.

 
 

An Evening Tasting Scottish Gin and Tonic

On Friday I went to The Finnieston’s pop-up gin bar as part of a 5PM deal. I love gin, but I’m disappointed when it’s served with the wrong garnish or the bartender doesn’t take pride in its presentation.

This wasn’t the case on Friday. We were presented with a list of premium, Scottish gin and tonics of which we could choose three. Jamie, our bartender, gave us recommendations based on our preferences and told us a bit about each gin.

They went down a little too well. I have to admit we didn’t stop at 3.

Living in Finnieston, I drink at The Finnieston quite often. Their gin cocktail, The Nautical, is my favourite. It was really nice to spend some time in their upstairs bar, which I didn’t even know existed, and have more of an intimate setting with the bartender who could talk us through our drinks.

 
 

Alchemilla

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!

 
 

Popping My Cottonrake Cherry

One of the (many) upsides of having Laura visit is food. Laura works at a bakery in Nottingham and makes me appreciate what goes into the process of hand-making food.

We visited Cottonrake Bakery on Saturday. All the croissants were gone by the time we arrived, so I settled for a pear tart. I say settled, but it was delicious. I washed it down with a black coffee. I’m carb loading before participating in tomorrow’s Great Edinburgh Run! That’s my excuse anyway.

 
 

Indie Is My Best Friend

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.

 
 

Breakfast at Kelvingrove Cafe

I published this post yesterday and then my site got hacked. I can’t remember what I wrote, but the gist of it was: breakfast at Kelvingrove Cafe was good.

 
 

Happy New Year!

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!

 
 

Mussels For One

Last week, I took myself to Distil for some lunch. I like spending time on my own. I enjoyed Beavertown Neck Oil and some Shetland mussels, house cured bacon and fresh herb broth. It was one of the most enjoyable lunches I’ve had.

Alternative shot on my Instagram.
