Vet Day

Today is vet day. Indie is struggling to walk up stairs and I’ve noticed she trips over her back legs a lot. I’m not too concerned. It’s very normal for a dog of Indie’s age (12) to have arthritis. Hopefully the vet will give us some medication. I’ve also ordered dog stairs so she can get onto the sofa without jumping.

 
 

Another Year of Glasgow Coffee Festival

This was my third year attending Glasgow Coffee Festival. You can see photos from the last 2 years here and here. In some respects it was better than other years (they introduced reusable cups, which in turn saved a grand total of 18,000+ disposable cups). The only disappointment was that no dogs were allowed this year (ignore those photos of Indie—she is an emotional support dog).

I ate cake, drank coffee and chatted to suppliers about the businesses they’re building and coffee they’re roasting. Just like last year, Rab and I had photographed a wedding the day before so we needed caffeine to recover.

 
 

Hotel Sleepovers With Indie

I couldn’t get a dog sitter, so I took Indie to Newcastle with me. What an adventure we had! 8 mile walk around the city centre, dinner at Dat Bar, cocktails at the hotel bar. I hope we have many more adventures, Indie.

 
 

The Good Coffee Cartel

Oh my, isn’t it exciting when you discover a new coffee shop? Not only that, but one that happens to be a 5 minute walk away… and is dog friendly? The Good Coffee Cartel is nailing it.

The Good Coffee Cartel is a coffee place, roaster and retail shop.  Get ’em checked.

 
 

Sunday Afternoon Light

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.

 
 

Indie’s First Time Off A Lead

Indie’s almost 12, yet I’ve never let her off the lead. Well, that’s not true. There were a couple of occasions and she ran away. She follows her nose—even if that puts her in dangerous situations. It does mean she never gets much of a chance to stretch her legs and run around.

Somebody on Facebook posted about a dog run in Glasgow and by the next day I’d booked a 30 minute slot for Indie. I didn’t know what to expect, so I packed a ball and some toys for her to run around with. It turns out she never left my side and just wanted to dig in the snow. It was very cute.

 
 

2017: My Best Photos On Instagram

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.

These are my top 9 photos of 2017, judging solely by engagement. They aren’t my favourite photos of the year. I like taking photos like this and this. But Instagram likes selfies and animals.

Follow me on Instagram for many more photos in 2018!

 
 

Indie

Indie’s operation is a distant memory. Stitches out, jumper off, cone head in the bin. She’s still getting special treatment, though, and is getting comfy on my bed.

 
 

Yawn

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!

 
 

An Update On Indie

Indie went under anaesthetic for another operation. Fortunately the lump was fatty. It disintegrated as the vet touched it. Great news!

I was dreading the recovery period as it wasn’t fun when we went through it earlier this year. However, Indie has bounced back really well. I think it’s because they didn’t have to remove a big margin around the lump, so the recovery has been easier.

Love you, girl!
