A wet Saturday in Glasgow with my boy

Winter has well and truly arrived in Glasgow. Not the frosty mornings and sight of breath you’d expect, but so much rain and a natures carpet of leaves everywhere.

Elliott and I decided to head on out for a grand day in the rain, adventures through Kelvingrove, pictures in Glasgow University gardens and then a cheeky pint in Bag of Nails ( formally known as The Partick Tavern). The Bournemouth Vs Man Utd game with the commentary of the Rangers game, oh Glasgow.

We enjoyed ourselves and this is always the best view of Kelvingrove 👌🏼😛

Glasgow hops back to life for 2016

It looks from the signs of it that my dwarf hop plant is coming back for another year!  

After a rather successful crop last year that enabled me to homebrew an impressive one gallon batch of CWG IPA the wee thing has sprung into action in spring.


Very excited to see what harvest I can get this summer with it being its third year. Still drinking the CWG IPA from last year, here’s hoping I get the priming right this time and so it’s better than this.


22 / Jan 2016 – Bokeh fenced in


I know you are all wishing and hoping on a nice day light filled photo that I promised. I did head out at lunch, but alas I was more caught up with the tasty goodness of Old Salty’s on Argyle Street, don’t tell my mum.

I instead have a wonderfully ISO filled, Bokehtastic and fence filled photo for you. It’s the weekend and one week left of photos, lets do this.

So I changed my profile picture


Always a tough decision to change your profile picture on any social network, but it was about time I changed all of mine. It was a toss up between the above Polaroid of myself with a gloriously painful hipster glow, and the below shot of myself recently in Morocco. Not much of a choice you say and too right, neither offering anything to be considered inviting or trust / hire / follow me. But how on earth do you select a profile picture, I’ve changed mine about three times in the past seven years. Let’s go with the idea I haven’t changed much, the reality is I don’t care too much how people view me. Let’s hope the new profile picture represents all that I am not really anywhere near you and taking a photo.
