These are actually from last week as it’s a bit dreich today. I am planning to catch up on things — many sights to show you from the last few months — but it’s been a bit hectic yet this month. But real summer soon (okay, maybe not the weather — I’m okay with dreich)….
Home Town Jaunt
Made a brief trip to the home town with my brother to see our other brother and my dad and pick up some things. Weird how much the town has changed yet our street so little. My older brother lives in my grandparents’ house, which we lived in when I was born, then moved into…
I dropped by the Albany statue for Robert Burns to pay my respects on his birthday. My friend Terry tells me after Columbus and Queen Victoria, he’s the figure with the most statues in his honour. He’s a lot more palatable than those two, too. The panels around the sides include a rendition of Tam…
It’s true I mostly hibernated over the break — some days I never even left the house — but I did finally make it down to the V&A to experience the much-anticipated glory inside it. The outside, I already knew, was gorgeous. I mean really just lovely. But inside, too, many wonders awaited. Lots more…
Empty Met & Heavenly Bodies

Sisters in Salem
Off with my gals to one of our favourite destinations this past weekend. Stories told, the lost remembered, hope restored. More pix on the ‘book and over at Instagram.
NYC, QoE and Me
Shenanigans in the city with gal pal Stephanie today. Hope to manage a few things like the Morgan medieval monsters exhibit. If you’re about give us a shout.
Out Now: Inanna’s Ascent
Out now! You can buy it direct from the publisher here, but it will also be available from the usual commercial outlets. Trista, Tamara and Pat have done a wonderful job gathering the words and art of women from across the world who have been inspired by this ancient goddess. I write about how I…
Tay River Cruise
We had a great day out on Saturday; being paranoid, I took the old phone so fewer pictures and none of the great sightings of dolphins right up close to the boat! Or the seal who popped up and gave us a look like we were disturbing her day — and loads of jellyfish which Charlotte…
Dundee Botanic Gardens
The Dundee Botanic Gardens: delights aplenty, a penguin and more. Many pix on the ‘book if you trawl there.
