I have come away from the LGBT Youth Scotland Reception at the Scottish Parliament feeling really upbeat. The event was brilliantly compared by 2 MSYPs, C-Jay Quigley and Owen Brand, each of whom gave some testimony of their work.

This is the first blog in which I have managed to write more than a few posts. I love the idea of a blog in the same way that I loved the idea of writing a diary when I was a teenager. My room was littered with notebooks with, at most, two entries and IContinue reading “The Ether”

My nail varnish that makes my hands look really feminine (in a certain light and after a lot of hand cream). There are many reasons why I love nailContinue reading “Nail Varnish”
It is New Year’s Eve and I am sitting teaching my son Advanced Higher maths (or math if you follow the American convention). We went “sales”shopping yesterday and l bought a new, beautiful Christmas jumper in the Next sale; I am wearing it tonight to the children’s teenage NYE party.
