On Friday we went a photo walk around Glasgow. It was sunny and as the light began to dip we stopped off at the Necropolis for some photos. I miss taking portraits.…
James and I used to go to College together, but we hadn’t hung out in about 4 years. I invited James to the Reel Big Fish / Less Than Jake combo headliner (which was amazing), and this opened the door to keeping in touch again.
James is into photography, so we spent one Saturday on a photo walk around Glasgow. I forgot how much I love photo walks!
I have a confession. The first couple of times I visited Manchester I didn’t enjoy it. Whenever I visited there was a monsoon of rain. My Converse would get wet and I was cold. Miserable! Now it’s one of my favourite cities, and this visit to Manchester is one of my best summer memories so far.
A group of us got a loft-style apartment in the city. The sun was shining. The World Cup was on. We ate good food and drank Sangria. Perfection! I like you a lot, Manchester.
It’s Christmas market time! I know some people delay festivities for as long as possible, but I love Christmas. Some friends and I visited the Christmas market one Friday evening and warmed up with mulled wine. Other things I like about the Christmas market; heated macaroons, currywurst and fake snow.
Well, that’s summer gone. We didn’t have many good days. With being a wedding photographer it felt like I was always working on the sunny days we did get. Nic and I managed to finish work early one Friday in September, however, and take our dogs up Conic Hill.
Indie had an operation this year to remove a lump, so I’m wary of what she’s capable of now she’s getting old. I said to Nic, “Let’s keep an eye on Indie and only walk as far as she wants”. Well, Indie pulled us right to the top. She’s a trooper!
Chad and Scott booked a week in Warsaw, Poland and I invited myself along for the weekend. Wanting to get away for a winter adventure, Warsaw was perfect for mulled wine, 2-for-1 hotdogs, card games and history.
I didn’t have a bad meal or coffee in this city. I also played my first game of Jenga.
I’m new to beer, certainly no connoisseur, yet I really enjoyed digging through Honest Brew‘s craft beer box (as did my friends). Our favourite of the evening was Beavertown’s Neck Oil.
Six beers, three friends and a lot of pizza. It was the perfect end to the weekend. So much so, I’m considering a subscription to Honest Brew for more social occasions like this.
Oh, and as someone who enjoys good design, I appreciated the branding on a lot of the bottles. Craft beer is pretty!

Shawshank (that’s my friend. It’s not her real name. Shawshank is from Uist and I was unable to pronounce her name. We gave her this nickname over a decade ago and it’s stuck) invited me to Cup Tea Garden to drink gin from a teapot. It complimented our afternoon tea perfectly.
Definitely a recommended visit if you like gin. Oh, and afterwards pop around the corner to The Spiritualist for more gin.
