Life, Death, and Social Media

A former colleague and Facebook friend of mine passed away last week. She was buried today after a Humanist ceremony to celebrate her life. Our paths first crossed in the mid-1990s when Kerry worked at a company that produced the publication I wrote for at that time. I didn’t know her well, but she was … Continue reading

WIMW – Edinburgh Fringe

WIMW – Edinburgh Fringe

This week’s Wednesday in my Wardrobe¬† is just basically an outfit I threw on last weekend when I went to see Sean Hughes at the Edinburgh Fringe. (Mr GK and I saw both his shows at this year’s event – they were both excellent, go see him if you can!). It was a warm evening, … Continue reading

Monday Meals – easy mash!

Monday Meals – easy mash!

It’s been a while, I know, but I am back with a Monday Meals – albeit, not a very detailed one! But, it’s mainly to highlight the most AMAZING utensil I’ve had in a long time! My mum went to a Pampered Chef party and brought me back a potato masher. She said the host … Continue reading

WIMW – up some hills!

WIMW – up some hills!

Last weekend was a bit frustrating. The weather couldn’t decide what to do, and neither, then, could we. We had planned a camping trip, but all week the forecast told us heavy rain was on the way. So, we decided to leave the camping to another weekend, and had a mixed bag of a weekend … Continue reading

WIMW – Madonna mania!

WIMW – Madonna mania!

This week’s WIMW is an outfit I wore to see Madonna at Murrayfield last Saturday evening. I’ve loved Madonna since I was about 12 years old. I remember vividly saving up to go to the local record shop, Taste Records, in Penicuik, to buy¬† copy of Lucky Star. The 7inch single was sat in one … Continue reading

Tuesday Tune – Madonna!

There is a lot of TV I would love to talk about, but, after my birthday weekend, and seeing Madonna at Murrayfield, I am a) shattered, and b) Madonna-mad all over again! It’s like going back to my teenage years. More of this Madonna-madness tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s Madge in all her glory in … Continue reading

WIMW – Saturday at the seaside!

WIMW – Saturday at the seaside!

So, Saturday was actually sunny! I had a hangover, having drank a few too many cocktails and tequila shots with my girlfriend the night before, but I rallied, and after sleeping in the car for an hour, Mr GK and I arrived at his family’s house in Eyemouth, feeling not too bad. It was Herring … Continue reading

BINTM – the secret phone calls part 2

BINTM – the secret phone calls part 2

So, last week, we got our hands on a very interesting secret phone call between Elle McPherson of BINTM (that’s Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model) and Tyra Banks of ANTM (America’s Next Top Model) – you can read that here. Last night’s episode saw three girls go, and reality TV star Whitney Port showed … Continue reading

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey

OMG! The whole world has gone Fifty Shades of Grey mental, it seems! I haven’t read it. I refuse to read it. I’ve heard it’s really badly written, and I know it would infuriate me. I also just don’t feel the need for erotica in my life right now! I guess I’m just not part … Continue reading
