We went out for a stroll yesterday, a start to working off the festive chocolate glut. It wasn’t a huge walk, just three miles alongside the Union Canal from Ratho, but it was enjoyable. It’s a while since I/we’ve been there. Some new houses and a marina on one side of the bridge caught me […]

A quick punt for a new post on my other blog. Also, I submitted two stories to a new magazine looking for pieces for its first issue. I’ll say more when I hear if they have been accepted or rejected.
