Rain rain go away, come back another day!

Grrrrrrr. That’s all I can really say about the rain these days. We are better off than some as we are a sandbag-free zone, but it is just endless. I thought we were meant to pack away our wellies for the ‘Scottish Summer’, but alas, not a hope. I have now updated my blog site, yes I know it’s been a while, so please feel free to have a wee dander and let me know what you think. What’s a girl to do though when it’s raining so hard the cats don’t even want to go outside? School holidays are

There is no good or bad news, there is only news…

As the famous (well in my wee boys minds anyway) Oogway the wise turtle once said, there is no good or bad news, there is only news! So, the bad news first… As most of my friends are aware, I entered a competition run by the Borders Writer’s Forum to raise much needed pennies for the Sick Kids Foundation. The winner would have their entry read out at the Borders Book Festival on Saturday 16th June along with receiving some beautiful crystal and going home with an amazing accolade under their belt. As the theme was to be ‘Illness &

The Grey-haired Lady

Yes, that’s right folks – it’s me!! Hands up, I am the lady of grey-haired qualities, well according to wee C anyway. There I was, minding my own business, helping my little cherubs become the studious and fast learners that they ought to be (yeh right as long as they can read and write then I am a happy camper) and giving it some large to the Curriculum of Excellence, as you do, from the comforts of our humble abode. When our conversation takes a wee turn for the worst: Wee C: Mum? Me: Yes? Wee C:  I’m not very

And now for something different…

You may be aware that I like to write rhyming stories. So, it comes with great trepidation and a large amount of courage to announce that I have stepped over to the dark side for a brief moment in time! After spending numerous hours researching the pro’s and con’s of eye patches and trying to figure out which public domain would be best suited to help with my written word on this subject (see watcha doin’ for a better explanation), I came across a competition for writers through my bible aka The Writers and Artists Yearbook 2012. However, there is

Dance like no-one is watching

Another Sunday morning and after numerous games of chess, draughts, I-spy and putting the world to rights Broadley style, my wee rugrats have finally succumbed to the chill out zone (aka the sofa). Now that I have some time, I can reflect on a wee party we attended last night. Getting involved in school events is a bit like a rock and a hard place – you really want to help out but you either don’t have the time or sometimes sadly the inclination or enthusiasm. Anyway, I helped along with all the other usual suspects.  And what a great

A productive day at the office

I am feeling a sense of enormous well-being today after finally updating information on all my work to date. Not being the slightest bit technically minded, I think I have done not too shabby a job either, although it did take me a while! I am trying (very – as some folk might say, yeh you know who you are!) to master the technical side of things too. Let me know what you think! Click  link here for the updates made today!
