We went in to Glasgow today for some window shopping and lunch at the 13th Note. They do have the best spicy chips in Scotland
From our museum trip yesterday. I used one of my old lenses for this shot and am really pleased with how it came out. Spending at day at a museum is good fun, and great exercise, too!
An exhibit by Sophy Cave at the Kelvingrove Art Museum in Glasgow. I like the angry ones best.
I met this lovely couple while crossing a foot bridge in Glasgow. He said I’d have to pay to take his picture, but my charm won out. I got this one for free.
It’s closing in now. The days are colder and we’ll change our clocks to British Winter Time next Saturday. Swans have predicted a harsh, cold winter.
Before and after the show yesterday, there was a horrendous amount of traffic in Glasgow. I was a little jealous to see how fast people were moving about over our heads as we sat in our car and seethed.
We went to Glasgow today to see Doctor Who Live. It was great! Lots of fun, but sadly photos were not allowed. I’m ashamed to admit I took this one on the fly. Seven Cybermen marching right at me? You better believe I’m getting a picture of that!
Toward the end of last year, I lost two stone — and by the middle of this year, I’d put almost all of it back on again. Wah! So I’m back to being good and watching what I eat. It’s not fun, but they say that nothing tastes as good as being slim feels. My guess is that ‘they’ have never tried a proper caramel chocolate.

Driving in Glasgow. As you can see by the amount of traffic and the speedometer, we’re not driving very fast.
The first time I saw this guy, he was ‘in character’ and scared me senseless by moving. He was much less threatening on his break.
On Tuesday, my lovely husband took me to Glasgow for my birthday. We had lunch at the BHS cafe (one of my favourites), and then went shopping at Princes Square. I hit the Cath Kidston sale and then tried on expensive perfume at Jo Malone. It was a perfect day.
We were back in Glasgow today for some shopping. I found stroopwafels which I’ll be having with my coffee later. I also found some blue roses. I’ve never seen them before.
My husband and I took advantage of the glorious weekend weather and made our way into Glasgow on Saturday. While he browsed in an over-crowded and claustrophobic music shop, I hung about outside and admired the pretty flowers being sold by a street vendor. The lilies were my favourite.
This is how I feel today — a bit grey and nondescript. It was quite cold today and I’m desperate for spring. Even the daffodils are late this year.
